I broke an Easton Stealth Gaborik by passing the puck to a teammate. Not a hard pass, a simple break out pass. It was about the 3rd time I had used the stick. It's not about technique, it's about these companies shipping out bad batches of sticks to make money. For $150 I expect the stick to built perfectly, with no flaws or hair lines. Easton Stealths and Easton SL's I broke regularly, all other sticks I've onwed I never had a problem with breaking. Now that these guys are charging over $200 for a stick it should not only perform great but it should be durable, otherwise why the price increase?
