I have used both and like both. One problem in Canada is that there are not good online retailers like in the States, you really have to rely on brick and mortar shops, which often have poor 2-piece selections. I can generally find a good 1 piece on sale for fairly cheap (for example, currently using an Easton ST that I got on sale for $100, they're normally like $190 in Canada), but it's a lot harder to find good deals on 2-pieces in the flex and curve that you like. If I lived in the States I'd definitely use 2-piece setups, great selection and prices off sites like ice warehouse.
Speaking of the ST, if you are breaking a lot of sticks in general I'd definitely give it the thumbs up. Performance is pretty good, not top of the line but still nice, and mine has been an absolute tank. I often break sticks quite quickly, but this thing has taken an absolute beating going on 8 months now (2-3 ice times per week), and still performs basically like new.
