Yep. Looks like marketing strategy. Although, IMHO these pro curves shouldn't be used by low level developing players.

There are plenty of heavy 'toe hooks' in the nhl. Difference is, those guys are elite shooters/ passers, they can adjust to a new optimal technique in a very short amount of time. Toe hooks are great for loaded wrist shots (think lacrosse racquet). But if you catch too much/ or not enough toe on a pass or slapshot or snapshot or stickhandling or backhanding, you're going to spray, these are not forgiving curves.
