$300 for a hockey stick seems a little crazy, especially considering that they break and I would assume that a high level peewee or bantam player must go through as many as ten sticks a year (am I wrong?). It's a lot of money for someone to shell out, especially a parent!
I just bought a RBZ driver this spring, it had been about 7 years since I had bought a new driver. I paid $299. Its one of if not the hotest drivers on the market. of course I'm still playing my hogan Irons from around'97 but you just cant replace perfection. I kknow some of those drivers got a little rediculous but at least there aren't supposed to break. sticks on the other hand...
