    So I was at the HWL Quarters yesterday and i i couldn't help myself from buying a new stick while I was there. I went with the fraud as the rail on the probow intrigued and i have always thought the grays felt slot nicer on the ball than the Gryphon Tour Samurais I've been using for the past couple of years. So if anyone wants a review on it let me know and i can have it up in a couple weeks after a few summer league games?

    How does the bow compare to the standard probow? Is the curve the same just with the indent or is it a whole new bow?

    I've never used s standard probow so in not sure, but in comparison to my Tour Samurai it's a sharper curve but with groove as the top edge is inclined out 4mm over the flat face of the stick making a rail

    Have a look at @CG14's in the review section - always enjoy reading those!

    Look forward to it. While we're here, would anyone care for one on the Mazon Slingshot XG?

    I will chime in with a PLEASE.

    Funny enough - I was messing around in JustHockey with a few sticks including the Mazon Slingshot XG.
    My wife ( who is super smart but just strange taste in men ) says
    " why did you not pick that new Mazon "
    To which I replied some irrelevant non sense then why you ask my darling?
    " Well it was clear that you had by far the best control and touch with the new slingshot. You almost looked like Glenn Simpson with it whereas with the others you looked scratchy "

    Really should listen to her much more maybe.

    Come to think of it though she has always liked Glenn Simpson's hockey skills??!! Maybe she has good taste after all .

    I'll get writing it in due course then mate :)

    Out of interest - which other sticks were you trying?

    Oh I am that annoying person that wants to try pretty much every stick in the store.
    I tried all the top end MAZON and the Fusion 9000 with the mental bow, nearly the entire GRYPHON range which is rather extensive, all the VOODOO's, couple ADIDAS and a good few GRAYS.
