In all seriousness though, people emphasis the weights of these sticks too much, if it weighs 400 or 500 it probably won't change your game much.
A lot of the lower end sticks are quite heavy, and there's a reason why. Most range from 600-800 grams, nearly twice the weight as a high end OPS. The reason why? The materials they use are far cheaper to use, much heavier, and the technology behind a $50 stick makes it nearly pointless to use. You'll generally get a better shot with a wooden stick.
It isn't all about the weight, I can give you that, but a lighter stick will allow you to release a shot faster.
