Hmm, I wonder why that is?
It's because these companies are paying/giving these teams lots of money, equipment, and travel expenses. It's not about the 'newest and (supposedly) better" equipment. It's just a matter of which company is willing to put out the most money/equipment/benefits.
If AKA were still in business, I'm sure you'd see professional teams still using Vikings, Excaliburs, and Evil Ms.
Money talks. Even if the professional teams have to use horribly designed markers.
