There were also a few sticks there which they said were given to pros to test, then sent out to stores so they were cheaper, iirc the best I found was an S17(maybe S16?) for 140$ but I didnt want to risk getting one of those.

Anyway does anyone have any insight on bang for the buck sticks in case my X40 ends up breaking?
there are always good deals on both pro stock sticks, and the previous year's model on closeout. Dont hesitate to buy either, just know the curve and flex you want because you usually cant return those.
