Easton Mako II Composite 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 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. 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.

My first observation was the Mako 2 is much lighter than the Mako. The blade is also much thinner and reminds me of a s19, only with the black sandpaper texture. Catching passes is easy and so is blasting a snapper top shelf. The graphics are cool but have no effect on performance, and like any other stick will begin to chip off after a few games. My only complaint would be the half inch smaller size of the stick length. Why make one years 60in and the next 59.5? Sure I'm nit picking but there is no reason to do that and adding a end plug throws off stick balance in my opinion. I wont say this is better than Bauer or Warrior or CCM because I never use those companies and have used Easton for 15 years. Plus those debates are pointless. What I will say is even at the ridiculous pricetag this stick is worth it. The first Mako did the job but the 2 is much lighter and has a better puck feel when moving in traffic. The black coloring on the blade looks better than last years all white which would chip away after 5 games anyways. I use the Modano, Zetty, Cammalleri curve and my only suggestion to players would be stay away from the Iginla pattern. The blade is too short and has a smaller sweet spot. Its also not as accurate with the saucer pass. From what I hear the new e28 pattern is a good choice for players who like a bit more curve compared to the less deep Modano. I skate ice and roller and this gets the job done on either rink. Bravo Easton, but please, no more increasing the price.
