I personally don't think the EQ50 is a bad stick, it just looks really gimmicky, so people don't like it. The construction is very similar to the SE16.
I have both sticks in my too large arsenal of sticks and I agree with the earlier poster that they feel very different to me. I do think the EQ50 is a good stick, particularly for a better player, as it has a great release. But the weighting feels different to me and when I switch them back to back, I have much better feel for the puck with the SE16. That said, I like a blade light stick, so it may just be my preference.
