weighted end cap?
 
I saw that the EQ50 has a weighted end cap and was wondering if other companies make something like that. I'd just like the end cap for some of my other sticks that feel a little blade heavy. I tried putting in a very short wood butt end but that didn't seem to make much of a difference. Any thoughts or ideas?

It should work out well to balance it. A lot of pros actually chop the sticks way down and put a wood plug to balance out. And with a really light shaft, the EQ50 weighted concept is intriguing (weights in the heel and in the shaft). Apparently the SE16 has weights in the heel and the balance is nice.

Anyway, until it comes out, you can always cut the stick down and put a wood plug in, or even use some heavy lead tape (like tennis tape) or put a couple heavy screws in the plug.

The SE16 has a weighted shaft handle, not heel

It's both, according to Easton:

Focus Weight TechnologyTM is used in the blade and shaft to improve puck feel as well as stick control.
