Of course they were supposed to be white to be harder to see against the ice...at least that was the marketing.
Well, look at the new Mako 2. It's got visible carbon fiber again with a black blade.
So you're saying that you thought the Mako blades were just EQ50 blades painted white? My store only has the M5 blades so I never saw the actual "Mako" blade, therefore I can not attest to that.
Another question for Jarick, though: When you say you feel like a stick (X60 in your case) has "pingy" puck-feel, what do you mean by that? Do you mean that it requires softer hands when, say, receiving passes and whatnot? I ask because I have a TotalONE LE and I feel like it's pretty pingy lol. Also, I'm planning on grabbing an APX as my next stick and I've never fuxed with one... would you also consider them "pingy"?
