What it has in performance it lacks in blade durability, they've made the RS2 blade stiffer and more durable however.
The Mako doesn't particularly excel in any area but I think that's what so appealing to people who've enjoyed the SE16; a no-frills solid product without a noticeable kickpoint and consistent feel.
Of course, the only way to know which one you'll prefer is to try them yourself.
I will never buy an easton again after the blade on my rs broke after 25 skates, complete garbage
