Go to a teams equipment sale...Usually the sticks are really cheap.

Well you can get as many as you want for cheap if you become a pro.

Make sure you're not paying too much, they are pretty brittle.

Depends on the stick. I've had pro stock sticks that I've used a handful of times and they've broken, I also have a pro stock first-gen dolomite that still gets used.

Sorry to somewhat change the topic, but what are the advantages/disadvantages of pro stock sticks?

I'm assuming pro stock sticks are sticks that are used by pros?

Wider range of curves, usually a wider range of flexes, not every stick is 60"(some people love this, some people hate it), different kinds of flex profiles, different kinds of grips.

But most importantly, they usually only cost around $100...

The big con is you can never be sure what you're getting. The pro is normally price. Generally, if you like longer, stiffer sticks (that's what she said), and don't care about the curve, then you'll like pro stocks.

The majority of pros use 85-100 flex sticks, also nearly all are shipped at the standard retail length.

The Bruins pro-shop in the Garden sells practice used player pro stock sticks for about 1/4 of their brand new price, Vladamir Sobotka uses the exact same size stick and flex I use, I have bought 2 of his sticks, Easton Synergy Pro Stocks, one without any marks on it and a blade that had never even been taped for 70$, and one before that with just a practice or two's use for 60$

Greeeattt deals.

PSHG is a great place to get pro stock sticks; I got a Dan Boyle SE16 (Team Canada colors) a while back.

There are a number of LHS in Van that carry pro stock sticks, always at very significant discounts. Pretty much useless for me though, I like whip flexes (75-77 or so), almost all the pros use 85+.

EPIC RESURRECT!

I also have an interest in pro stock sticks, and got one in the most unlikely of ways.

Yesterday I went to check out an apartment. The guy showing me the place asked what I do for a living, and I told him I work for Athletica Sport Systems. We got to talking hockey and he told me Nick Spaling is his best friend. As I was leaving, he gave me one of Spaling's used Warrior Widow sticks. The blade has a pretty nasty crack (I think the tape is all that's holding it together) so I can't use it or anything, but it was a neat gift.
