In a composite blade or ops though, I haven't seen them for a while now.

Thanks for the tip on the curve. I know it's probably an illegal curve but I've fallen in love with my 5030 Coffey wood blade. Now I think my next ops might have to be TPS.

p.s. nice pic killa

It's a crutch....and I promise you that it is holding you back. Force yourself to learn on a new curve and you will realize all new potential to your accuracy, especially on a snap or slapper.....and a whole new level to your backhand.

ya I go back and forth. All my other sticks are Thornton but ya I pretty much have no backhand with Coffey so I mainly just use it in my womens league when I just usually play around and have fun jumping up on offense. But I will keep it in mind not to get too used to it. Do you know if the Afinognv is an illegal curve?

a home test is to lay the stick down, then press on the backhand's bottom half of the blade so that the stick is about at a 45 degree angle. If you can fit a dime under the blade standing up, it is most likely illeagl

It is listed as a 3/4" curve, but it is shallower than that. It is pretty much on par with your meathook/Coffey.

5/8" is the crossover point.....but in 9 years of reffing I have never inspected a curve. Just a FYI....the rules state that only the coach of the opposing team can request an illegal curve check. Upon measurement if it is illegal then the stick is discarded and the player is penalized a 2 min bench minor. In the event that the curve is measured to be legal then the team that requested the curve check will be assessed a 2 min bench minor.

Sneaky sneaky sir....

Default Blade Pattern References

Hi guys, I'm currently using the RBK 7K/9K with a Modano curve, and I'm very happy with the blade.

I've recently been looking into other company's sticks and I'd like to find the closest match to my Modano curve as possible, if not the same.

I *think* the Easton's Forsburg curve is the same as the Modano? (on the Easton blade pattern chart it says Forsburg/Modano), what about for Nike Bauer blades? The closest thing that I can see on the NB blade pattern chart is PM9 Malkin/St. Louis. Anybody who has had experience with these blades who can maybe confirm my guesses?

I'm looking at the Easton S17 and the NB One90 in particular, if that helps.

Thanks in advance,
Justin

Warrior-Federov
NBH-PM9 (Hossa/St. Louis/Malkin)
Easton-Forsberg
RBK-Modano
CCM-Steen
Compro-9M
Mission-Boyes
TPS-Tkachuk

All of these are the clones or closest replicas in each of the major stick company. (I know Compro isn't a "Major Stick Company" now, but let's hope they get there!)

The unique thing about the old Shanny's was the longer than normal blade. As far as the curve, check out the Easton Iginla and Heatley.

Whats up guys, sorry if you have already addressed this but im trying to find clones of the iginla curve from other companies. i know the lindros is similar and i believe the draper is too but any help would be greatly appreciated. as far as comparing goes i am most concerned with the short blade length (i cant shoot or stick handle without short blades anymore) and the Lie. thanks
