Rattling/buzzing sound in new Easton Stealth

I just picked up a new/old stock Easton Stealth from Sportscheck for a good price, but when I got home noticed a rattle from inside the shaft.

Can't see anything wrong, but when I tap it on the floor or with my finger a high pitched rattle occurs. I pulled the plug out but there is nothing that will come out that would cause it.

I called them and can return it in the morning, but it was the last one they had and it was marked down by $100.

Is this a major defect or something not to worry about?

I'd return it for sure. Could be that a layer of material wasn't covered with resin and it's loose. If that's the case, then I figure it would start to weaken and eventually the stick will snap.

When you pulled the plug out the rattling didn't stop?

A lot of S17 and S19s had loose plugs. We had a lot of guys thinking something was wrong, but it was just the plug itself rattling around.

No, it rattles with or with out the plug.

It goes back tomorrow morning.

Might check around some of the other Sportschecks. It was the Orange/red one, with no pattern name. The guy said it was a Foresberg pattern 100 flex.

Thanks for the thoughts.

You either have a diamondback or a bees hive in your stick. Return it for a new one.

Seriously, I have that too, but stick works fine. Eventually you get used to it. But if you're worried, return it for another.

Yeah, I work at Sportchek(not sportscheck) and you shouldn't have any trouble returning or exchanging it.

The return went smoothly, with no fuss. Good people to deal with!
