Easton S19 Replacement

I loved using the Easton s19 (drury curve) but the stick is now practically impossible to find in my 75 flex anymore. Does anyone know what model Easton replaced this with and is the replacement any good?

Ugh, I knew I should have stocked up on the s19 when I had the chance.

The S19 was replaced by the Stealth RS as the top of the Stealth line.

Personally, I don't really like the RS or the Mako (Easton's other current top of the line stick) but I know a lot of guys who LOVE the RS and think it's the best stick ever made.

Mine's definitely starting to grow on me and I can absolutely see why people have said that. Out of every near-recent top-end stick, I have had the most pop and weight to my shot with the RS, even when I had to try an 85 flex in the RS rather than my preferred 75/77.

The RSII is coming out this September and has a stiffer blade (more durable). You'd be looking at the Parise curve which is a renamed Drury.

The RS users that used the RSII at ModSquad's SummerJam didn't have nice things to say about it. They seemed to feel that the pop was dialed way down.

I think I just can't get past the shaft geometry and feel. I used to love the old Synergys (early 00's - plain silver, Grip, Si-Core) but when I pick up the newer Eastons they just feel...off, I guess.

Wow, really? That's very interesting. My shot with the RS was the best out of anything, so I suppose you can really tell the difference when trying another stick. Gotta wait for early September then for when they ship in.

You really gotta wonder what Easton's doing with their products here. I'm the only one at work who has any type of positive opinion on Easton...

Strange. I love Easton sticks. Their skates are a little less popular though...

I like their skates but feel that their sticks are absolutely stagnant on any type of innovation and progress. Mako is more or less very similar to the original Synergy type sticks in construction and the elliptical on the RS has been around since the S17, what's new Easton? I don't see any protective changes except for the RS glove (which is opening to mixed reviews AFAIK).

In the last year, I've used:

Dolomite
ST
Dynasty
EQ50
RS Stealth

The Stealth is notably better than all of these sticks. It's lighter and I can definitely feel the "pop" people talk about here.

After the Synergys I switched to Bauer having never used anything but an Easton twig for the previous 10 years, loved the X:60 Stick'ums so much I got 6 of them! I haven't loved a stick so much since I got my first Convex a million years ago.

Yeah, this is the site I use to buy these but they don't have my 75 drury flex. I like the stick so much I'm thinking of just buying the 100 flex that's available.

The asking price is a bit steep, though.

They do, it's just been renamed to Parise.

I realize it's called drury/parise. It's not available when I look. Right 75.

Used easton for 10 years. Switched once to a warrior and it was garbage. I loved Easton. Finally, I got sick of the poor durability so i opted to try a stick my buddy told me was legit. Combat. That stick feels identical to Eastons (the new ones are VERY whippy but legit) and its simply amazing. I broke my 52 cal and went back to the EQ50, the stick that was the best for me prior to the switch. Hated it. Now i got the new one and its amazing. Seriously, consider it.

Where are you buying these? Seems like these are hard to find too.

They are. You can buy them straight from their website. I have a buddy who buys like 20 at a time and sells them to people he/we know.
