Anyone who isn't paranoid would not.
stick9- Exactly what I do, I have yet to pay anything close to full price for a stick. I get top of the line models from last year and get them at a significant discount.
Well if one had flat tires often they WOULD indeed be checking their tires often. It is pretty established that flat tires are a rare occurance so yes that would be silly to check them often.
Hey .... I report what I see and that is all I can do. They really do check their ONE piece composite sticks often to see if the blade is cracked as do many folk at shinny hockey. It happens enough for me not to trust them enough to buy one myself.
