Easton Mako II Stick
- Easton is set to launch the all new, completely redesigned Mako stick for 2013. In reengineering their line of Makos, Easton product designers focused on manufacturing a more responsive stick for a more accurate shot.
- Easton’s carbon shaft is designed with unidirectional fibers to provide greater strength to the stick, but with reduced weight. This denser structure translates to a more efficient transfer of energy, from player to puck, for a more powerful shot. With a textured shaft, contoured for a better grip with the palm and fingers, the player will enjoy greater control over the stick.
- The 2013 Mako stick sports a lighter, stiffer blade, translating to a quicker release and better shooting control. The ribbed blade construction maintains the durability of the blade with less material, for a substantial reduction in weight.
- Mako's E28 Dual Lie Blade is intended to set up on the ice in two primary positions. The heel of the blade, the strongest part of the stick, sits on the ice when the player is catching a pass. The strength of this position minimizes puck deflection, allowing the player to control the puck. The second position puts the toe of the blade on the ice, when the player is shooting. With the front part of the blade down, the heel is raised. The Mako is designed for the player to lean on the toe of the stick, his hands forward of the blade. This allows for more flex in the shaft and the blade for more "pop" out of the stick and through the puck.
