I know there are topics on this, but this is a more specific one to me. I'm 5'10, 150 lbs and I'm in my second season ever of playing hockey. I was hoping to get a new stick and pair of skates with my birthday money this year, and I've got a budget of about 60 - 80 for a stick and 125 - 160 for a pair of skates. Just looking for suggestions on what are good quality skates/sticks for that budget. A lot of stuff from last year is on sale/marked down I know. I play defence, and I'm looking at moving to an intermediate stick with low flex because my shot is terrible. If it helps I'm from Ottawa so I do tend to go to Pro Hockey Life or Source for Sports. Thanks!
