Good starting whippy/flexy stick

I'm just getting back into hockey and, well, when I used to play, my stick was bad it was embarrasing! rofl.

I was just wanting to know what is a good starter stick that is pretty light (especially blade light), has noticeable whippyness to it and is reasonable price-wise? I have a fairly regular flexed Easton SMU stick now so I wanted to get a whippier stick as I shoot around to get used to the different stick types.

Thanks all

what's your budget? cheap sticks are always blade heavy, and even if they are balanced, they're usually very heavy. finding a whippy one isn't as hard.

if you are in Canada Crappy tire has the winnwell pro480 for 99.99 bucks that is amazing. even at a 87 flex it loads easy and the whole stick weighs in at 490g I cant think of any stick below 500g for under 100 bucks.

I can't say enough good about the pro480. paying less for a stick you will get way less for the money.
