Sticks pros use vs consumers

This always confuses me. Take Kane and Ovi for example. Faces of the Vapor and Supreme lines from Bauer respectively.

Vapor is about puck feel and quick release which is prety much tailored for the game Kane plays while Supreme is for maximal loading of the stick to get most power and release from your shot like you would expect Ovi to use.

Just how different are the sticks these players acutally use vs if I were to buy a Vapor 1x and a Supreme 1S? Do they use completely different sticks 'dressed' as these sticks for marketing/sponsorship endorsements or are the sticks just slightly modified?

Looking for any information to understand what I buy when I Buy a top of the line Bauer consumer stick vs what the pros actually use down at ice level

Ovechkin's 1s is actually G3 which is similar to a Nexus 1000 & Kane's 1x is actually a 033 which is a Total One.

There are plenty of threads on this subject. Try searching 'pro stock' sticks for example.
