If you're still running through blades like crazy you may want to look into a shaft. Theyre cheaper in the long run but honestlly not by much when you can find a cheap ABS for $12-$15.

I use the easton Ultra-ABS. Theyre $14 around here and are tanks, I've never seen one break and have been using one for 8 months now, granted the blade has been really bad over the past 3 months. But at that price it's more than affordable.

Just make sure it's ABS and that you're using the correct lie, otherwise you'll notice alot of wear near the heel of the blade. Check if that's where most of your wear is before you buy a new stick.
Bauer One30 is a good one, but the blade gets soft. If you can, try to find some Montreal sticks with ABS blades - they are tanks. Koho Crossover 2260s are also good ones. Another good path to go is to get a cheap shaft and put in some ABS blades.
