refurbrished prostock sticks
 
So what's the deal on refurbrished prostock sticks? Are they worth 65$ ? I need all the info I can get !

Prostock sticks are often sticks made to a player's specs that are sent back to the manufacturer due to player dissatisfaction (doesn't mean they are defective however)

- Modified curve, flex pattern, finish, length and any number of factors
- They could also be repainted (ie. a 'prostock' EQ50 could be any number of sticks from a Synergy SE to an SE16)
- No warranty

Basically, it's likely that a prostock stick that you think you're buying is drastically different than the regular stock ones so buyer beware.

refurbrished being the key word in my post. I know what prostock sticks are, what's the deal on refurbrished ones.. Are they worth it?

Refurbished pro stock sticks are sticks that have been broken and then repaired by "Stick Fix". You're buying a stick that is used and has already been broken once. Is it worth the money? That's up to you. I had a stick repaired by SRS(cost me $30) that worked well and didn't give me any problems. Of course I'm not sure I would pay $65 for a repaired pro stock stick, when for $10-$15 more I could find brand new pro sticks on ebay and my LHS.

I bought a refurbished S19 for $20 and I LOVE it! It has given me no problems at all and still has a good feel and balance to it. I guess a major factor is who fixed it and how they did it.

Just keep in mind that the 30 day guarantee only applies to the spot that was repaired. Any additional breaks are not covered.

I get referbs for $30.00 USD and they hold up well but they are not even close to the same as new. I have bought 2 referbs 1st was in an emergency 2nd was because I wanted to try a curve. I don't use them except for pond hockey now. I'll be damned if I take a $200.00 + stick out to a pond.
