Koho sticks? The hell???

I've been using Koho sticks for a while now...

Is it just me or are this year's models all really ugly and cheap-looking?

I bought the new Torpedo (finally found it!) and it's exactly like last year's model, except now it's hideous and really, really cheap looking.

I know it shouldn't make a difference, but I find that since it looks cheap, it feels cheap.

Just my two cents, but I always considered Koho a third tier type of brand, for whatever reason. Never liked their stuff, although I do have Koho shin pads that do the trick just fine.

Post pics of what you consider cheap looking on said twig...

The ****? Koho was bought out by RBK, and as far as I know, they stopped production a while ago.

I was told Koho dropped their stick production...I guess this explains it.

Last year's: http://www.hockeymonkey.com/koho2260trpsr.html

This year's: http://images.canadiantire.ca/media/...0_CC_508bb.jpg
(this photo is not of the Torpedo stick, but it looks just like that).

Mainly it's got that ugly reflective tape...

Yeah, I have it, and it does seem like they short-budgeted production or something. Kind of ugly.
