I have used Easton sticks for a long time. I had two 2-piece sticks, both with SE16 blades. When one blade broke, I bought the Mako blade in the same pattern, etc., etc. The first thing I noticed, before even taking a shot, is that the Mako was heavier than the SE16. My disappointment continued when I took the first shot and determined that the kick that I loved from SE16 blade was gone in the Mako blade.
The power of my wrist shot and snap shot were reduced by 50%. For someone who loves the SE16, my question for Easton is why design the perfect wheel?
