Yeah, Jeff Summit said they designed the head and own the rights to it. I'm sure they could pursue Lynx and force them to stop selling it, at least in the U.S., citing patent infringement (assuming they patented the design). But since Hireko discontinued it last year it's not even worth the trouble.
I also found it interesting that the "new" Lynx Tour blade is likely a rebirth of the Henry Hatton blade from DT which is a 7-8 year old model, which would mean it's also from the same mold as the Alpha MB-V2 blade . And one other interesting point - even though the Alpha heads sold for 50% more than the DT heads ($25 vs $16, if I recall correctly), they're actually form-forged 304SS while the Henry Hatton head was true forged 8620! Just goes to show that price doesn't always reflect what it costs to make a head. Alpha was able to sell their head at a 50% higher price, even though they likely cost much less to produce, because their brand has a premium reputation. It's all about perception.
