You poor baby!
Baldness and general plumpness would support that claim, however age and height does not.
If he hadn't changed brand they'd probably kept making two versions.
However, I this is a good time as any to venture into making my own.
Only improvement I could ever see with that stick is no finish what so ever(though I don't mind this one too much) and making the exact same stick in all types of different woods. I changed for a new pair just yesterday which was on the heavier side and I love it. Just phenomenal. I have some AC 2Bs that I use for certain types of wrist based pad work, but that's it.
It's just my personal taste. There are no rules that say you have to agree.
I'm just as annoyed by the local farm where I could great raw cheese and butter closing shop, and if I could I would get myself a couple of cows and goats to make up for that.
On further inspection it seems they just added 1/16th instead of 1/2 inch which I heard. That might be a good thing, so maye with a touch os sandpaper or steel wool I'll be fine.
