I'm confused as to why you guys would use multiple sticks if they aren't the exact same thing. That's forcing you to re-adjust every time you switch back. If you have a practice stick that's different from your game stick, that's only hurting you. You get used to doing turns and handling the puck with one stick, then you have to get used to doing the same things with another stick during the game. Please don't say, "That's what the warm-up before the game is for!" because the warm-up isn't for the players - it's for the goalies.

The Octane is a completely different brand than your Vector. Yes, most back-up sticks are significantly cheaper than main sticks, but at least keep them the same brand/blade/curve. If you're going to buy the Octane, I'd highly reccommend a Thornton curve for it. No sense in having two sticks with different curves.
