In addition to lighter weight, I figure a stick with some "whip" to it will maximize my paltry shot making abilities. There are so many sticks out there, that it's tough to choose. From looking at the various internet shops I see that various Mission models seem to be marked down to the $60 range. The TPS R2 also seems appealing. Thanks.
Honestly, don't bother. At your level you likely won't notice the difference. Besides, sticks in that price range aren't your best performing sticks.

That doesn't mean you have to keep on playing with a wood stick. A good shaft blade combo will offer a increase in performance without a huge dent to your wallet. You'll be able to get lighter stick with more whip to it.
