Easton Mako 2 and the E28

mako1

With the Easton Mako 2 hockey stick being released tomorrow, it will also be the debut of the E28/Bjudstad pattern; better known by it’s more common name, “Kreps”.

It is a toe curve with a dual lie designed to receive passes on the heel and shoot pucks off of the toe.

It will be interesting to see how this new pattern fairs at the retail level as toe curves cater to a very niche market.  In the past, the scarcity of finding one made it a very hot commodity.  Stores often did not sell them and the only chance of getting your hands on one was to go Pro Stock.

Rival company Warrior Hockey recently scrapped their toe curve, the Gionta W10 pattern, for 2013 (except for the DT2 Grip) due to poor sales in just two short years.

More after the launch.
