It isn't all about the weight, I can give you that, but a lighter stick will allow you to release a shot faster.
I agree with you that the super low end stick isn't going to be all that great but the mid range sticks aren't that bad. I just think it's stupid to spend $200 on a stick if you aren't already a high end player because the only advantage you are going to get is mental.

I will just stick with the two pieces, almost as light and the same performance.
