It's not all that far-fetched, really.

It doesn't really take a gear connoisseur to know what he/she is using. I'm pretty sure he knows exactly what he is using each and every time he steps on the ice. The two Easton models don't really feel the same at all. I still see S19's everywhere for sale.

Well what would be the explanation for dressing a current model stick as a discontinued one? Doesn't seem very logical to me, as an uninformed observer. So I defer to you obviously cooler, wiser hockey dudes.

Don't take it personally, it was a chuckle haha. I'm thinking they were from the same (huge) batch and they did it for him because of that and perhaps they'd like him as an endorsee later on.

Maybe being up every night this week with a cranky toddler is making me touchy. Anyway, but regardless of who it's for, why dress a Mako II as an S-19, in any quantity? It would make sense to me if the S-19 had still been in production any where close to when the Mako II came out, i.e. they were hiding an unreleased model in "old clothes" - but there's just such a gap between the times the two sticks were produced... or could it be as simple as a preference for one graphic over another (esp. since the Makos have so much white and the white blade) or the S-19 graphic being an arbitrary choice?

Maybe preference and Subban having enough leeway to demand it. Maybe the Mako 2 construction existed when he ordered that batch.

We could keep guessing, but it's pointless.

Who cares anyway ? The pros themselves don't really know what they're using. They just find something suitable and stick with it.

For example, Semin uses a stick painted as a T1 NXG, but it's actually a One 90 (2006). It really is an old model, and it doesn't come with the latest technologies, but he keeps using it because there's no reason to change.

You contradict yourself. You say they have no idea what they're using (which is false for the most part) yet Semin knows he likes the One90 rather than whatever random stick they give him...

PK told me last fall that he's using SE16s dressed as S19s. So at the very mininum he knows he's using a paint job. very common in other sports like tennis.

didnt ask him why though.

Yes, an older stick dressed as a newer stick is quite common. A current model stick dressed as a significantly older one is far less common.

I think Easton has tried to get him to use their newer stuff too. All the pro stock stuff I find of his are mako IIs.

I've heard that a number of 1st and 2nd Gen (TotalOne + NXG) were painted One95's

Its all preference really... IMO 2 of my favorite twigs are still the S19 & One95

I prefer the S19 to the RS line and the One95 to the APX... but is very simular to totalone
