Cheap sticks have a lot more fiberglass to them, which makes them heavier but more durable. They often don't have the same kick as a high end stick, so if you really lean into sticks while shooting, it may suffer. The blades are often poorly constructed without any foam for improved feel, which may hurt your passing.
As a rule, I avoid all sticks under $100. It's just not worth it, because I can find good (slightly) used sticks or two-pieces for the same or a bit more money. But my game is ALL shooting and stick handling and if I don't get some kick on my shots and have good puck feel, it hurts my game.
My teammates that are more about skating, passing, and garbage goals do just fine with the cheap sticks...the shooters tend to buy the nicer sticks.
