Pure Hockey Says: New for 2012, the 65S II continues on the path from the tremendous 65S stick released last year (2011) - it remains simply the best (and lightest) stick at this price point that we`ve ever held in our hands and used. Easton once again went out and talked to what matters most - PLAYERS at all levels - and asked what is important to them in a stick....and here it is. The 65S II has a low kick point flex profile to provide that effortless release with the Easton elliptical taper profile as well. The Pro inspired shaft dimension creates a comfortable and natural feel when it`s in your hands. The Micro bladder technology divides the blade into multiple channels to create an exceptional feel when handling the puck. This is one of the best deals you`ll find on a composite.
