I love my Bauer x60.
If it were alive, I would make sweet love to it.
But it's a stick, so it would be kind of weird.

There were also a few sticks there which they said were given to pros to test, then sent out to stores so they were cheaper, iirc the best I found was an S17(maybe S16?) for 140$ but I didnt want to risk getting one of those.

Anyway does anyone have any insight on bang for the buck sticks in case my X40 ends up breaking?
I recently started using an X;40 too and it is an excellent stick. I do not know how people can spend $150 or more on a stick, maybe i am just not playing long enough but $90 is plenty for me.

I'd say as an alternative, try a CCM U+ 05, it is similar to the U+ LE I found for $60 and since these were discontinued, I looked at the 05 and it seems to be quite similar, also around $100 or so, same as the X:40.

the problem with this stick is, it makes every other stick in your arsenal feel like a club......love the X60 !!!

Thanks for the replies. Also sounds like I made a solid choice which is good news, for what it's worth I'm really liking it so far.

I think the Reebok 3.0.3. in that price range is a pretty decent feeling stick in the store. The X:40 was heavier than I remembered.
