Typically the benefit of OPS over 2 piece is lighter weight and better balance because the fuse point between the shaft and blade is very low on the blade, rather than up in the shaft. If you can live with that little heavier weight, the 2 piece would allow you to save cash by swapping blades or shafts when they break.

It seems you like lower kickpoint sticks, so you could go for a Dolomite 2-piece rig or something similar. There should be a lot of good deals on clearance shafts over at Hockey Monkey and other places ($80 for an 85 flex shaft + $48 for a blade = $128 plus shipping). Or they have MacDaddy's on clearance for $115, same thing but lower fuse point for lighter weight.

But there's almost always clearance sales going on, so you can get last year's model OPS for $120 or so at lots of places.
