They are fun to play with, but if winning is your concen, they will not beat the "stiff" PPs you have ordered.
That's a really interesting point - almost did exactly this a few months back, especially after I found someone who apparently had a store-room full of these sticks (Ltd. and International) and was asking a reasonable price for them - but nonetheless quoted a shipping fee of about $100 from Hapsburg europe.
