There were a lot of descendants/variants - hypercarbon, stretch, power holes, not sure if there was a rollers version. The nSix-Two still was decent, there was a [k]Six-Two that I rarely saw anywhere, and I think the once-proud line went extinct after that.
I think marketing is to blame for its demise.... Since when has a pro played with a 6.2?
