I don't take slap shots as much though, that could be why.
I have a game used RS that I paid $80 for that I use for D league and drop-in. I've slammed it more than once after a bad shot (not like a two hander against the boards, but something I shouldn't have done), had it stepped on (surprisingly it stayed in one piece), and had it wedged into a door once during drop in and it still is intact. I'm not saying I expect it to last another 2-3 years. It might even break on my next shot. But so far, it seems to be working out for me.
I buy used knowing that I'm getting a high end stick for a middle of the road price. If it breaks, it breaks and I move on. Now if I have a run where I rip through three sticks in 5 games, I might have to take a step back and re-examine my theory on buying used.
