I've been breaking a lot of sticks recently, doesn't matter which brand (most recently Bauers and Sherwoods), definitely frustrating. Last stick was a one95, performance was fantastic, but broke it in less than 2 months. I'm now of the opinion that it's a complete waste of money to ever buy a $200+ stick when they're so damn fragile, once any high end stick takes a good slash or some other such impact its days are pretty much numbered, especially if you shoot hard. Replaced the one95 with an Easton ST that I got on sale for almost half off, performance is not up to the one95 at all (worse puck feel, more blade heavy, doesn't flex as well/as nicely, I prefer 77 flex sticks but the ST only goes down to 85), but they're supposed to be tanks durability wise, so hopefully that's true! Apparently it's wrapped in kevlar to make it more impact resistant, and the walls of the shaft are definitely way thicker than on the one95, so I'm reasonably optimistic.
