Or you're a senile old man.
The industry is successful not from reasonably high skilled players benefiting from a better engineered stick, but from children and novice players shelling out more for a stick that they are told will improve them.
I don't deny that they can help someone's game, but feel as though in the last decade or so people seem to prefer buying new expensive equipment rather than practise. And no, I'm not a senial old man. I'm 27.
