I read that as well. I wouldnt say I'm hard on sticks in general, but for example, my X-lite(x-light?) stick, I broke the blade in no time, and in multiple places. Pretty much another broken stick for my "make into furniture" pile.

Harrow might be an option. A while back they had a 50% off thing, have they done that since?
