Hello again guys,
I’ve prepared a list of the basic gear I intend to order, I would love some feedback
I’m aiming for a set of high quality intermediate-advanced gear, I don't want to end up buying low-tier gear just to end up buying everything all over again 5-6 months from now!

Gloves
Bauer Vapor X40 Hockey Gloves

Shoulder Pads, Elbow Pads & Shin Guards
Bauer Supreme One60 Shoulder Pads
Bauer Supreme One60 Elbow Pads
Bauer Supreme One60 Shin Guards

Reason I'm going for a matching set is because many stores sell these combos together for a reduced price!
I've also looked at the Bauer Supreme One80 and Bauer Vapor X40 Elbow, Shoulder and shin guard combo and I would like to know if you reckon it's worth spending an additional 100USD for these?

Skates
Bauer Vapor X6.0 Ice Hockey Skates

Helmet
Bauer 5100

Hockey Pants
Bauer Supreme One80 Ice Hockey Pants Sr 2011

These pants have a reasonable price tag AND they come in an X-large Tall size!

Stick
Bauer Supreme ONE80 GripTac - Flex 87 / PM9 Blade

I need some help right here though because I intend to get a 8" wooden end plug to extend the stick but I'm not sure how this will affect the flex? If I want to land a flex around the 87+ regions, do I need to get the 102 flex version of the stick?


All comments, thoughts, recomendations are more than welcome!
