I think the word "don't" is missing in this comment.

The Vapor XXX is a great stick, but it's not known for it's durability. In fact it's just the opposite.

Spending $160.00 on your first OPS only to have it break in a few months is not a wise choice. My first OPS was a Louisville TPS Rubber Response I got it for $42.50. I wasn't horribly disappointed when it cracked (use it as a back up now). It was a nice and inexpensive introduction to the OPS market. If I didn't like it I wasn't out all that much $$$.

Make sure you like the feel of a OPS and find a blade pattern you like before buying a high end expensive stick like a Vapor XXX ultra lite.
