Easton Mako II Grip Stick

Receiving the pass, positioning for a shot and blasting one on net is hard to do all in one motion. Until now.A step up from last year's model, the Easton Mako II Grip Composite Stick makes energy transfer a very smooth process. Using a Uni-Carbon Fiber system in the shaft, the Mako II provides you with the strength necessary to fire a hard shot while reducing the weight to keep your body fluid. During construction, each fiber is carefully directed to align the same way, creating a tighter layer for the best possible energy transformation.The blade is ribbed, which allows the blade to remain light despite the increased stiffness. The Micro-Bladder technology also makes the blade very durable and able to withstand the rigors and tribulations that you face each game. The blade is lined with Non-Skid Coating, which will assist in keeping the puck at the sweet spot just before taking a shot.The Mako II also features a textured shaft that contours to your palm and your fingers. The added grip found throughout the shaft keeps your hands in place without worry. Gripping your stick has never felt more natural. Handling the puck has never felt so simple.Finally, a stick that can keep up with your quick hands has arrived.

Compares well to other top end sticks
Pros: Helped improve my game, Quality, Easy to use
My last experience with an Easton twig was the S19 and since then I've used Bauers (APX, NXG and Nexus). I picked up this stick in E3/85 flex on a year end sale and I'm pretty pleased with how the Mako II performs. I'd give most of the Bauers I've used the edge in puck feel but the Mako II really stands out with how the blade performs when shooting. The puck comes off the blade really true and with a good deal of zip. This stick does flex quite a bit but I'll take every little bit of help I can get.

One of the best Easton sticks
Pros: Quality, Features, strong blade
Cons: Expensive, grip
Big improvement from the first mako. Blade is a lot strong and still a light stick. Great for stick handling as well. Only downside is the grip is a little too tacky. Other than that it is great.

Easton Mako II
Pros: Quality, Easy to use, Features
Cons: Expensive
I really want other companies to be better than, or as good as Bauer, but it just isn't happening. However not a bad stick. Considering it's a top end stick I would expect it to be better balanced, it's a little blade heavy. Decent shot. I took it out and shot with it next to my APX, and felt that the APX outperformed it in feel, and shot speed (only took wrist and snap shots). It was also stiffer/more difficult to load than the APX (same shaft stiffness). Really comes down to personal preference though. I definitely like that they are offering it with a new blade pattern.
