TPS Response Sticks

I'm looking to buy a new hockey stick and was looking at the Afinogenov TPS R2 sticks. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with them and can let me know what they're like.

The R2? They are pricepoint sticks and arn't worth it in my opinion. I usually like how the TPS stick feels in my hand but these things are cheapo...and feel like it. I mean I think it might be close to a decent wood stick like a one60. Spend like maybe $15 more and get a Response C9 which is a pretty high end stick on sale at a lotta places. It'll be worth it.

I had a TPS stick a few months ago forgot the model but it was only 95 bucks but it was one of the top sticks i used but loved the feel and wish it never broke.

The R2 and R4 models are nothing to write home about. They are heavy and the R2 is incredibly unbalanced and top heavy. Go for a One50.
