Kynetyk and Blakbak Sticks, Any Good?

I've heard new info on both these companies and their sticks look okay but I've never heard any users of them give reviews. The Kynetyk Reflex and Blakbak Venom/Series 1 are their top offerings. Has anyone here used either?

Wow ... I've never heard of those before. I will be watching this thread with interest, I am always looking to hear about new goods and if they are good or not.

I've seen Kynetyk and they are nothing special. They are coming out with a ridiculous toe-curve retail pattern though. It's a Zherdev pro-stock clone.

Any company with childish names like this, and sub par products, will fail.

Well, I believe a simple name with a clear focus on one type of product (like only sticks, or skates or gloves, etc.) and making that one product top of the line (like Eagle with gloves) will result in success in any other markets

and yet they were seen as just another company with a gimmicky name. It's much more than simply looking at the name.

And I detest Warrior's crude marketing and naming. Gets sales, but screams "immaturity."
But, if Warrior's product was terrible they would never have gotten where they are. It's a marriage between marketing and product.

I hate their graphics, but that didn't stop me from buying it + 1 can of black spray paint. It's a good product, and I don't mind paying for a good product.

That made me laugh out loud, Warrior has some of the stupidest names I have ever seen for sticks as well as the terrible graphics.

I'm sure their sticks are great, I would just paint mine black if I had one.
