New RBK stick?

Has anyone noticed that a few NHL players (I've seen Souray and Sundstrom on the habs) have been using a neon green RBK stick.

Does anyone know what stick that is and if there's any info on it?

My guess is its the 8k

Hrm, haven't seen a copy of the 2006 RBK catalogue floating around yet. Here's a pic for those who are interested:

I'm guessing different colors means a different line of sticks or it could be new colors for 06.

I was reading about it somewhere...forgot the what it said so that's of no help

Anyways, I do remember someone speculating that it was just new colors, to match their skates since those are black with the neon green pump.

i'm guessing its part of the new pump line, because the new pump skates have those colours

Rbk

It is actually the 9K...lighter than the 7K...it is possible! The colours just match their new line like said before...

The 8K is actually a shaft...not a one piece composite...at least thats what theya re saying at the store. The new Stealths weigh about 370 grams (25 grams lighter than the old ones) and the new RBK 9Ks weigh in about 375 grams...

There's a thread over at MSH about the new RBK stick Souray showed up with.

My answer: Sherwood 7000 Featherlite stick with either a Spezza or Bourque curve.
