I haven't been because I don't buy them. I play beginner (which is like D league). The majority of the players can't skate well and my poke checks are pretty damn forceful. I've already broken 2 other people's sticks trying to poke the puck up the ice (did I mention we rarely get resurfacing?). Going with the "no one can skate" thing, they pretty much step on my stick or fall on top of it.
I would definitely buy an SE16 though. Used one once and it was probably the sturdiest composite stick I've held. Problem is I can't really find them, and when I do, they don't have the Sakic/Hall curve.
