TPS response R2 problem
im not rich, so i went for a cheaper composite (around 60 bucks) and settled on TPS R2s. ive had them about 3 weeks and already they have chipped more than my previous sticks i had for about 2 years. i dont know too much about sticks, so im not sure if this is a problem for this particular model. if anyone knows anything about this, speak up. id hate to have them shatter after 2 months of use

You know the old saying, "you get what you paid for".

I'm not rich either, but there's more bang for your buck for 60 ffeakin' dollars than TPS!!!
I bought my Bauer Vector XXX for $85 (List $115). Only $25 more than $60 and it is the best thing I've used to date.
Here's some that friends use and I've heard good things on:
RBK 4K - $70
Mission Axis - $40-$60
Graf G-Force - $70
Bauer Apollo - $50
Bauer One50 - $55-$65
Mission Toxic - $60

I did a search on ebay for my fave stick (a Mission M-1 pro stock with a mitchell curve) and got 2 for 80 bucks plus shipping.

ha the list on a vapor XXX is 160, not 115. Tell me where its listed for 115 and ill suck your dick. ('05 models are 99 at hockeymonkey, but they only have left handed sticks)
anyone that wants good sticks at a bargain just buy clearnace vapor XX's or XXX's from hockeymonkey or hockeygiant for 90 and 100 respectively.
