Unless you play professional hockey, why on earth would you spend that kind of money on a stick?

Thing is, professional players don't even pay for their sticks

This is my point. People often justify the cost of these sticks by talking about all the new high-tech processes used in the manufacturing, but a company like Easton has been doing this stuff for ages in other applications. It's not like they're developing new construction methods.

Sticks only make so much of a difference. It's the player that makes the biggest difference. If people have to buy a $400 stick to feel like they are a better player, so be it. However, I doubt the results between a $100 stick and a $400 stick will be very different. A player who sucks will still suck and a player who is very good will still be that.

It won't be from Easton. I've already seen the 2008 Easton Line-Up which contains two new helmets, a conversion of the shafts, and a new S16 skate. The top of the line stick in Easton's line is the Stealth S17 Ellipse (Grip/Non-Grip).
