I am interested in all of these, want to know what users of the sticks think. As far as OPS go, I would never want to spend over $120 on an OPS. I am looking for performance obviously, which stick gives the best shot speed / performance. Also, Durability is a large issue. The obvious upside of a 2 piece is easily replacing the broken blade. Also there was this bauer stick I saw there, I cant remember the name. Is V2 a bauer stick? For reason I think it was called V2 Stickum or something. 90 bucks, seemed to be the strongest, lightest etc of ALL the sticks on the rack, inclusing Synergy ST.
