i try not to spend over $100 on a stick and i always score more goals and get more assists than the guys playing with $300 sticks lol but its beer league so

It's whatever you're comfortable with. When ops first came out they were equivalent to prob the mid range ones now at best. Back then we thought they were (and they were at the time) the best. Now some won't even think about using a similar spec stick. 

I see it kind of like being spoiled. Better not to try out a stick that's the next best thing and 300+ bucks if what you have now works. Because it'll just mess you up psychologically lol. But it's also a marketing thing where new models come out every year or so.

Part of me would prefer to remain completely ignorant to how the top end sticks play, just to keep my bank account in the green....

I stocked up on the ek365s bc I love the weight and how I shoot with it. And the fact I got them for about 100 cdn each. I'd never spend more than 160ish cdn on a stick.

You can now go to MyBauer sticks and choose a black colour option which will make your stick look like Kucherov’s paint job. 
Available on all 4 stick options (Vapor, Supreme, Nexus, ProCustom).

im shocked that pro players wouldn’t be using the top of the line elbow pads. Aho looks to have S190 elbows. Is this common? 

Best believe if I was in the show, I'd try to find a way to still be using my now 20-year old Jofa's, which are anything but top of the line.

I can't stand modern elbow pads. They're so bulky and restrictive. If I HAD to pick a modern elbow pad? Give me the FT370's.

After that performance he should stick with it. He’s been bouncing all over the place with sticks for months.

True. I know tons of players use Jofa/RBK which I thought was pro spec. Just old gear they have become accustomed to.

Ever see Crosby’s stuff?  Old and practically falling apart.  On Spittin’ Chicklets I think he said his jock is the same since juniors, which if actually kind of gross but to each their own.  During I think the last All-Star game they showed him getting dressed and you could see the repairs on his elbows and shoulder pads which looked to be ancient.  He said he hates to change gear.
