The Stealth line of sticks offer features and technologies at every price point to help enhance shot accuracy. This 55S II is a relatively lightweight entry level one piece stick. Drawing on the successful look of the RS, Easton went with the tonal black look for the forehand of the 55S II. The Stealth line uses asymmetrical graphics, so the backhand graphic is radically different than the forehand.
Easton uses a Carbon Fiber and Fiberglass construction in the shaft. The shaft geometry, which is very popular among Easton's pro players, has square corners with slightly concave walls and allows you to get a nice secure grip of your stick. The 55S II is only available in a matte finish.
It's the elliptical profile of the taper that sets the Stealth series apart from all other sticks, and seeing this technology at this opening price point is a real added value. This is a finely tuned taper section that provides torsional resistance towards the blade opening up, which is a contributing factor to shot accuracy. This area also provides the low kick point of the stick, which allows for a quick release.
Easton uses a multi-rib construction for the blade of the 55S II. Basically, this means that there are 2 structural ribs that run the length of the blade with foam cores between the ribs. This provides a nice feel to the stick.
For an opening price point value stick that is relatively lightweight and has accuracy-enhancing technology that is found in higher end models, check out the Stealth 55S II from Easton.
