Blade/curve different on grip stick vs non grip sticks?

I read somewhere that the blade/curve on grip sticks retail are a bit more straight vs the none grip of the same type of retail stick.
Is this true?
I have a retail s13 grip stick SR and when I compared the blade to my Easton RS int none-grip stick my s13 grip stick seemed to have a more straighter blade.
Both are Hall blade/curve.

Im planning to buy an Easton RS grip stick with Hall curve/blade but I want the same curve and blade as I have on my none grip stick, not a straighter version.

Thanks

They're the same... now why would this happen?

The grip and non grip sticks are the exact same thing except for the coating...

Agree with Aireaye, that seems a little bit odd.

You could always buy the non-grip to make sure you are getting the same curve every time and add your own grip to it. The old using the back-side of stick tape works great. Tape a very small portion of a broken stick with the sticky side of the tape facing out and apply it to the shaft of your "non-grip" stick. That way you can put your own amount of grip you want on it - just a thought.

Ciao,
