We've sold more sticks because people can shoot with it before they buy it since we put it in. like if we were selling 1000 sticks a year we've gone up to at least 1500-1750.
That sounds true enough. I was at the LHS up here at school, found a pro stock Vapor 40, and I asked for a smarthockey ball to stickhandle around with to make sure the feel felt okay for me. Wound up being a big factor in me buying the stick.

On a sidenote, stickhandling to keep the smarthockey ball away from a dog who's trying to fetch it is a pretty good drill.
