Need Similar blade info: Warrior W01
So since most of you are curve crazy here, figured I could get a good response.
I've been using a Warrior W01 pattern (Savard/Federov) with a Lie 4. Now I like the curve but i feel the Lie is more what I like about it(stick blade is a lot flatter on the ice while the Lie 5 the toe raises on me along with other blades ive used in the past)
I have a hard time finding this blade locally and was wondering what out there is comparable, Lie and Curve in other brands
Warrior measure their lies differently from other brands (actually, no brands seem consistent with their lie measurements period, but Warrior seems the most different). A lie 4 Savard is going to be extremely similar to a lie 5 of the equivalent curve in other brands. So an Easton Zetterberg/Cammalleri (same curve), a Bauer PM9, etc.
If you want to try other low lie curves with different shapes, Warrior make a bunch. The Gionta is a toe curve option, the Kovalchuk and Zetterberg are mid curve options, and the Vanek is a very slight mid/heel option. All are lie 4 curves by Warrior's method of measurement, which is roughly equivalent to lie 5 in Easton/Bauer blades, though really with rockered blades there's no precise way to measure lie, every curve is a bit different even when the listed lie is the same. Reebok also make a number of fairly low lie curves, but I'm less familiar with their patterns.
Thanks Ponder, I figured youd prob be the one to respond. I'll have to try out some of these blades. I have an old shaft with a dead wood blade on it so I need to pick up a new one so I'll try to find the Bauer or the Easton locally since the proshops by me carry more of their stuff than Warrior. I had tried the warrior because I got one of their higher end sticks through a buddy for about $50 when the proshop he worked at was liquidating their warrior stuff and I really liked it and have been trying to use that combo ever since.
