    How on earth is their senior stiff model a 40/45 flex?
    Won't that thing snap like a twig?

    Reebok uses a different rating. 40/45 Rbk is about a 100 Easton.

    It's all arbitrary.

    Oh ok. I was scared for a second. I want to get a 5k shaft and a 5k datsyuk blade, but then I saw 45 flex and im like what the heck? Im going to break it by passing!

    Leave it to RBK to be different. I'm not a huge fan of their shafts. I think Eastons are better.

    I was reading some less then impressive stuff about RBK sticks. Not sure if they have addressed any of the problems or not. One thing that really sticks out to me is all the RBK users switching to other brands mid season.

    I was looking at one and it had the Jofa logo on the back. Are RBK sticks really old Jofa's repainted?

    I've had nothing but good things to say about my Innovative Inno 1100. I had it for years. The thing is a tank. If I were to go back to using a regular shaft I would probably go with a Warrior AK27 or a left over Innovative product.

    P.S. BTW I love my RBK skates so I am not just hating RBK stuff.

    Yes, RBK is Jofa. Most of their protective equiptment and sticks are atleast.
