Vapor X:40 vs X:50 stick

I am looking at purchasing either the X:40 or X:50 stick. I am coming from a One75 stick but want to try the Vapor line. The X:60 is out of my budget. Is there a huge difference between the X:40 vs X:50 stick? The prices jump up quite a bit between the two.

I was in the same boat you are a few weeks back.

Sorry I can't help with a comparison since the shop didn't have the X:50 I was looking for but I can say that I'm very happy with the X:40 for the price. I'll be interested to hear what others have to say.

For $150 I would go with something proven, like the Warrior Dolomite, One95's on closeout, SE16's on closeout, etc. Even cheaper sticks like the Easton ST are good buys for a bit more money.

I am in this boat as well. I am very happy with the X40 for under $100, but I can't compare it to the X50.
