The blade of this stick is forged with the Micro-Bladder blade process, which helps with energy transfer. The blade's Micro-Rib construction helps with a quick release and shot accuracy. This stick is a step up from the lower cost S7 in that it has a more unique external design and more blade pattern options from NHL players. However, this stick lacks the higher cost S15's larger array of blade and flex options. There are model variations for the Easton Stealth S13, which vary in price.
