Looking for Easton Curve Suggestion
 
I'm looking to buy a new stick, I normally use Eastons. I play with a stick which is pretty long, nose/eyebrows, and I'm normally a defensive forward who uses wrist and snap shots, no slap shots. I currently use a sackic/hall curve, but when I use a short stick (below collar bone) it's fine, however with my longer stick I shoot way too high. I need something that allows me to shoot naturally lower and direct my shot a bit better.

Any suggestions?

(This is for ball hockey currently)

Zetterberg curve.

use ur hallsy curve and dont follow through on shots u want going low. then you'll also have the ability to pick high corners as well. zettsy curves are harder to put high then halls are to put low.

Iginla would be similar lie with a flatter rocker, shorter blade, and less loft. You might want to try a Zetterberg as the lower lie might help with the longer stick.

Curves are so personal. You could end up trying a Zetterberg/Cammalleri (which is what I would recommend) and hate it, or you could stick to your Hall and adjust your technique. An Iginla might allow you to have a similar level of depth (to cradle the ball with) without being too open. Best way to try new curves would be to have a cheaper 2 piece combo.

That's what I use as well. It used to be the Forsberg...used that for years. Tried a Heatley, but hated it. A lot of people I know used Modano curves...what's that one called now?

Modano curve was the original Zetterberg/Forsberg/whatever other name they tried to give it.

What this gentleman said. I use this pattern on any stick now. Enough curve to generate good snap/wrist/slap without sacrificing backhanders. For me personally, it is very versatile. I have a wider array of shots and hit the net a lot more than I have in the past. What I love most about the curve is how much power I can get on a backhander. 3 out of the 7 goals I have scored this year have been backhanders. Try it out and see how you like it. You can still shoot high relatively easy if you put the power into your shot. I noticed with the Sakic curve that when you put a lot power into your shot it will more than likely go high and wide.

I will buy a new stick tomorrow and test it out at pickup.

Zetterberg, here I come! :)

I just got a used Zetterberg blade for $10. It's been fun messing around with it but every shaft I have to put it in is pretty heavy with bad balance.

BHDefensiveForward 11-30-2012 12:17 AM

So I played with the curve with a stick that is 55" 65 flex, up to my eyes/eyebrows! Awesome handling for moves, and my shots for snap and wrist are very fast and accurate!! Much better than the 5.5 lie halls at 95+ flex I was using before.

The blade is almost flat as well when I stick handle which is nice! I can even do back handers now! It's not that hard to toe drag, but it's a bit risky at times. Overall, superb!

Thanks!! :)

What's your height again? Where you always using stiff flex senior sticks?

BHDefensiveForward 12-06-2012 08:34 PM

I'm 5ft 5" / 5ft 6".

I've used 65 flex sticks, and by time they got cut down to under my chin the flex rating was too high sadly.

Might want to consider a Heatley, Iginla or Zetterberg/Cammy curve.

Im a HUGE fan of the Cammy curve. Id recommend that curve if youre looking at older eastons.

If not, then id just go with the zetterberg curve.

Don't you mean Zetterberg (Forsberg) for older Eastons and Camm for newer?

TheeNorthStar 12-07-2012 01:50 PM

I dont think so..?

The Foresberg curve is basically the PM9 curve correct? Isnt it called the Zetterberg curve nowadays? I cant keep up with the name changes :laugh:

and the Cammy curve back when the S19 was a top of the line stick was the old p10 bauer curve correct?

If so then thats the one im refering to. The squared toe, med-longish blade thats kinda like a hybrid of a p92/sakic and a pm9/foresberg. At least imo thats what it looks like to me. I have a pro stock s19 (painted as an RS) and im almost certain has an old cammy curve. By far my favorite curve

Yes, they had a short run with that version of the Camm curve.

For the PM9 clone it went Forsberg-Zett-Camm.

It gets confusing.

I've been using the Zetterberg Curve since I posted that I bought some sticks, works wonders!!! Thanks for the help!
