gear like x60 are top of the line. not sure the exact comparison but stealth 777, etc are lower to mid range. as for easton stuff, they're great but when it comes to sticks i've been disappointed with durability. their new stuff might be more durable, but i've already switched to bauer and been happy with it. as for canadian stores that carry good equipment, i would say cyclone or source for sports (higher end stuff), and sportchek sometimes have deal on certain things. if you're looking for helmet, sportcheck have rbk 6k for $70 right now but you'll have to match it with a visor. good one will run you close to the cost of the helmet.
if i can do it all over again, i would go:
stick and skates
mid or whatever comfortable (but usually comfortable means highend)
gloves and helmet
after going cheap, then going mid, then high cost a lot more than if i were to go high on certain equipment in the 1st place.
