New Composites?
Looks like Easton is making some cheaper sticks:

Anyone know the deal with them? I noticed they do not come in any curve that I like.

Hmm... just looks like they're mid range synergies from reading the descriptions. Not sure if the durability is any worse than the $150 synergies. Personally, I'm a wood guy, but perhaps I'd try some cheaper composites like that.

yeah I can't find any more info on them yet. wondering about the weight.

Probably in line with the RBK 4k and the Warrior Royal. Both are in the $80 range.

I didn't like the RBK 4k even though I loved the Datsyk pattern blade. The stick was very blade heavy. I haven't seen the Royal yet so I can't comment.

Makes sense though. By making a cheaper OPS they may grab some people who are content on using a shaft blade combo or even wood because of the price.

They look cool though. I'm thinking something along the lines of a replacement for the Easton One and competition for the 4K and Royale like you said.
