I have a stock pile of OPS sticks (SE16s, S19s, X60s, ect...) where nothing appears broken but all of the blades have structural cracks that are not visible and the blades feel like jello.
Yeah the performance is not up to par with top of the line sticks in terms of the feel and the flex, but I don't find it too bad, better IMO than popular mid range sticks like the X40. I definitely shoot better with top of the line sticks, but I also break them in 1-3 months, normally within weeks of the warranty running out
I actually find the blade on my ST to have stayed pretty stiff for me even after 8 months of heavy use, but every stick is different.
If I lived in the states I'd probably switch to a 2-piece setup, especially if you have a coupon code you can get a 2-piece totalone for a reasonable amount of money off icewarehouse.
