However, I'd like to point out that while the weight varied a lot between pairs, Todd's signature stick might be the best stick that Promark make. I could dig through several pairs and walk out of the store with some great feeling heavy maple sticks.

From your wiki link:

"Basically, lean is centered on preserving value with less work. Lean manufacturing is a generic process management philosophy derived mostly from the Toyota Production System (TPS) (hence the term Toyotism is also prevalent) and identified as "Lean" only in the 1990s.[1][2] It is renowned for its focus on reduction of the original Toyota seven wastes to improve overall customer value, but there are varying perspectives on how this is best achieved. The steady growth of Toyota, from a small company to the world's largest automaker,[3] has focused attention on how it has achieved this."

Soooo, I guess this means we can expect Pro Mark to begin employing manufacturing practices that result in dangerously defective products and massive recalls!

Great! :|
