The Stealth line of sticks offer features and technologies at every price point to help enhance shot accuracy. This 85S II is lighter than its predecessor and it has great durability and responsiveness. Drawing on the successful look of the RS, Easton went with the tonal black look for the forehand of the 85S II. The Stealth line uses asymmetrical graphics, so the backhand graphic is different than the forehand.
Easton uses a hybrid Kevlar® wrap on the outermost layer of the shaft, which provides vibration dampening and impact protection. 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 85S II is only available in a grip finish.
It's the elliptical profile of the taper that sets the Stealth series apart from all other sticks. 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 through its micro-bladder process for the blade of the 85S II. Basically, this means that there are 2 structural ribs that run the length of the blade with a combination of a bladder and foams between the ribs. This provides a great feel to the stick and in conjunction with the 3K carbon wrap provides a nice amount of stiffness and torsional rigidity to the blade.
The Easton Stealth 85S II has been engineered and tuned to enhance shot accuracy, so go ahead and shoot with confidence.
