RBK 9k replacement

Hey guys,
Broke my Rbk 9k (O-stick) last month. I bought an Easton S3 to replace it under a budget and it makes me realize how much I miss the Rbk. Just got some money so I'm thinking about picking up a different, lighter stick, and had a few questions:
1) Which of the new Rbk O-sticks compares to the 9k? I see that there are 3.0.3, 6.0.6, and 8.0.8 models now. Would like to be able to spend less than $100 on the new one so the 3.0.3 seems like the right choice, but if it's a huge downgrade from the 9k, I'm wondering...
2) Would it be worth it just to stick to the S3? It's heavy as hell, but if no stick under $100 is going to come close to the 9k, then maybe I just need to get used to it. Maybe instead of going with Rbk though...
3) How does the Bauer X40 compare performance-wise? And what other sticks might it be worth it for me to consider?

Thanks for any help
