I would pick up some 2-piece sticks. Dolomite 2-pieces are $160-170, but if you break the shaft, you can just replace it and save the cost of a new blade.
The only toe curves I know are the Harrow #4 (pretty mild) and the Base Hossa pro (bigger open toe curve).
New stick this year that sucked ass. I knew another kid who had one and broke it immediately too.

I actually had an ST '09 model (look, ive basically had every damn upper-echelon Easton '09 model) and it broke after, I THINK, 2 months at the max. I remember my buddy winning the faceoff, i'm a dman so i curled it back while skating backwards and went to throw it on net and it snapped in half. Mind you, that was my first shift of the game, it was fine in warm-ups, and no one hit me. Explain that one (not being a ********, dont take that tone wrong.)
My ST I still have is the '06 model or later. I dont remember because its been that long but the blade is breaking so its purely backup. The thickness of that stick is unreal and its really, really not that heavy. I'd perfer 50-100 more grams on my stick and stronger durability then some weak ass stick that breaks. Honestly, the comparison in thickness to that ST to the '09 model was insane. It was like comparing the thickness of a piece of paper to cardboard. My dad looked at it when I showed him, the guy knows nothing about hockey, and couldn't believe how thick the old one is compared to the new one. Shockingly he could see why it would break.
For the record, I bought a Warrior Kronik for 120... Draper curve. Thanks everyone for the comments. At least I know I'm not in the same boat. Btw, I play Roller hockey so these sticks should NEVER be breaking.
