All the pro-stock sticks I've seen are overstock for sale at both brick and mortar and online hockey stores. Players get a whole bunch of sticks made up at the start of the season to their exact specifications, they obviously go through a bunch during the season, but if they have leftovers at the end of the year they'll sell them to stores who sell them to you. Pro stock sticks are almost always unused, and they're cheaper than the standard retail sticks (often by a good 30% or so), but you don't really know what you're getting (sometimes a stick will actually be a different stick with a new paint job, or the player just has weird specifications), and the sticks in general are pretty stiff (hard to find pro-stocks in the 75-85 flex range, most are stiff flexes of 100+).
