Pro Stock Sticks
 
Anyone know of another way besides e-bay and hockey monkey to get pro stock sticks.

Backstrom #19 05-04-2010 10:25 AM

Go to a teams equipment sale...Usually the sticks are really cheap.

Hrad 05-04-2010 11:03 AM

Well you can get as many as you want for cheap if you become a pro.

Make sure you're not paying too much, they are pretty brittle.

Depends on the stick. I've had pro stock sticks that I've used a handful of times and they've broken, I also have a pro stock first-gen dolomite that still gets used.

Sorry to somewhat change the topic, but what are the advantages/disadvantages of pro stock sticks?

I'm assuming pro stock sticks are sticks that are used by pros?

Wider range of curves, usually a wider range of flexes, not every stick is 60"(some people love this, some people hate it), different kinds of flex profiles, different kinds of grips.

But most importantly, they usually only cost around $100...

The big con is you can never be sure what you're getting. The pro is normally price. Generally, if you like longer, stiffer sticks (that's what she said), and don't care about the curve, then you'll like pro stocks.

the big con is you dont get a warranty, which is why they are alot cheaper

denace 05-29-2010 05:45 PM

The majority of pros use 85-100 flex sticks, also nearly all are shipped at the standard retail length.

dont forget that if you buy a prostock S19, chances are thats its not a real S19

nickerjones 05-31-2010 08:17 PM

I give a +1 to TSR .. just bought 4x X60 sticks from them.. got a great price on them.. You can call instead of using their website.. they were very nice and shipped all 4 sticks for 20 bucks!

TuukkaTime 06-01-2010 09:48 AM

The Bruins pro-shop in the Garden sells practice used player pro stock sticks for about 1/4 of their brand new price, Vladamir Sobotka uses the exact same size stick and flex I use, I have bought 2 of his sticks, Easton Synergy Pro Stocks, one without any marks on it and a blade that had never even been taped for 70$, and one before that with just a practice or two's use for 60$

Greeeattt deals.

Tuckerw68 02-02-2011 12:48 PM

Does anyone know when the bruins equipment sale is or is going to be in 2011?

PSHG is a great place to get pro stock sticks; I got a Dan Boyle SE16 (Team Canada colors) a while back.

canuck44 02-02-2011 04:55 PM

None of your LHS's carry any?

ponder 02-02-2011 05:49 PM

There are a number of LHS in Van that carry pro stock sticks, always at very significant discounts. Pretty much useless for me though, I like whip flexes (75-77 or so), almost all the pros use 85+.

The one I use now is that way it says S19 all over it but its actually a SE16.

Some do problem is I'm a righty the choices are few and far between online my LHS rarely has any.

Islander102 02-03-2011 12:43 PM

I know all three NY area teams sell pro stock sticks directly.

FrozenJagrt 01-19-2013 05:22 PM

EPIC RESURRECT!

I also have an interest in pro stock sticks, and got one in the most unlikely of ways.

Yesterday I went to check out an apartment. The guy showing me the place asked what I do for a living, and I told him I work for Athletica Sport Systems. We got to talking hockey and he told me Nick Spaling is his best friend. As I was leaving, he gave me one of Spaling's used Warrior Widow sticks. The blade has a pretty nasty crack (I think the tape is all that's holding it together) so I can't use it or anything, but it was a neat gift.
