and I'm sure there are great success stories, too.

I've been using their 405 stick for months now - no stick has ever lasted as long as this one has, with as much abuse as I've given it. It's been through 25+ games and probably close to 70 hours of pickup hockey and, aside from a few nicks and scratches here and there, it performs as well as the day I bought it.

Chris @ HT just sent me a lefty demo stick to let people try. He shipped it from California on Monday and it arrived at my home in Atlanta on Wednesday - talk about quick shipping. I've never had anything from CA arrive that quickly. I have nothing but good things to say about them. From what I've seen, they go out of their way to work with the customer. Another quick story: last Christmas my buddy ordered two 405's - only one arrived. I called them up and explained the issue. Not only did the NOT accuse me of trying to seal from them or anything like that, they apologized for the mixup and agreed to immediately ship me the other stick.

Every manufacturer has horror stories. It's all up to the consumer to choose what they want to do with it. You could complain how Easton went from making sticks in Canada to Mexico and the associated quality deterioration we all saw because of it... or I could talk about my horror stories with Warrior - spending close to $1,000 on sticks (different models) to have each and every single one of them break in the exact same place (about 4" above the blade/shaft fuse point)...

Point being, Tron honestly does offer a pretty great product for the price. And, again, this isn't to try to sway you spoiled turds who have mommy and daddy buying you equipment left and right - it's for people who hadn't heard of Hockey Tron, saw their prices are considerably lower and wanted an honest review.
