I know there has been some confusion on the origins of the Inno Maniac and Thunderdome product sold at Monkey. Here is some insight into these products. This was originally posted on Warrior's Facebook page since the question came up during one of our "ask the Product Manager" sessions.
Hope this info helps:
The Inno Maniac, Thunderdome and ProLiteII are Warrior overruns that were built at our factory in Mexico. These overruns consist of pattern overruns(sticks made over our demand from our orders), or sticks with slight cosmetic (ding, scratches, pit marks) but consist mostly those that have flex or weight discrepancies.
Warrior has a very tight tolerance on our flex and weight testing. We flex and weigh-test every shaft as they come off the line and if, for any reason, they do not fit into our tight threshold, we put them aside as a non-cosmetic blem. These blems (always tested without graphics) are put into a pile.
We use these sticks to build some Special Make Up sticks under the INNO brand name. There's nothing particularly wrong with the sticks, except for the fact that the flex might be off by 3 or 4 points or the weight might be off by 5 or 10 grams. So a sticks that was supposed to be an 85, might be a 89 or 82. Or a stick that was supposed to have a 300g handle, might have a 310g handle.
If those off-specs don't bother you, it's a pretty good deal for a stick made in Warrior's factory.
