This past fall at the Fall Classic tournament in Farmingdale, NY we met a family that traveled from Florida to play in the tournament. The son of the family is a defensive player, which means that he has to travel with his 60" defensive stick. As you can imagine, that is not very convenient. In fact, the airline charged him $150 to check his stick as a second bag. This is another great example of the cost saving abilities of the TRINITY shaft. Had he had one before he made the trip, then he would have been able to break it down and store it in his bag. Saving him $150 on top of the already ridiculous amount of money that he had to pay to get to the tournament.
