Yes sir. Although you might see the rare pro return stick that has retail specs, the vast majority are different, with different degrees of differentiation. Blade, shaft construction, custom curve, textures, shaft sizes, grips, lengths, materials etc.
Unless you know what the codes stand for (and even then, it's a rough ballpark), the best you could do is picking it up and through trial and error.
