Pro Stock Sticks and Blades

May be a dumb question, but what are they?

Sticks manufactured for professional and NCAA use.

Good discussion about them at the end of this thread.

A lot will match up to retail patterns, some will be tweaked, some just waaay different. They also have different options, a 95 and 120 flex are available. Z-Tac is still available(including non-Easton brands). Different graphics packages, custom length available. Even wall thickness of the shaft and blade thickness can vary. Fused wood blades are also available.

It's plastic. In some sticks the ABS is on the bottom of the blade to wear on outdoor surfaces without damaging the typically wood structure blade.
