Your pro stock stick
 
Thought it'd be fun to start a thread on this to see everyone's preferences. Let's pretend you make it to the NHL, and you can get an endorsement deal with the brand of your choice, and get to order custom sticks with any feature you want. What would your pro stock stick be ?
I'll start :
For me, it would be a Bauer Total One NXG (mid kick), 77 flex (senior length) but with rounded corners like on the APX 2, a bit of grip towards the handle and a matte finish on the lower half of the shaft and tac spiral.
The blade would be a P08 curve but with a higher lie and a slightly shallower curve.

CCM RBZ II
95 Flex
1 inch longer than stock
Don't care about lie
Heal curve, pretty deep.
Square toe.

An all white Easton mako II in 85 flex, with a slightly more open e28 blade.

Jarick 01-07-2014 10:10 AM

Bauer APX2
Intermediate 75 Flex
Corner Tactile + GripTac
Versteeg Pro Curve
Dark Grey Finish

izzy3 01-07-2014 10:42 AM

Fun idea.

Easton RS I, with grip not too much though
Sakic/Hall curve, a bit more closed at the toe
Flex would be between 70 and 80 depending on my strength

CornKicker 01-07-2014 11:17 AM

i would literally sand off RNH from the CCM RBZ 2 75 flex and put my name on it

PlamsUnlimited 01-07-2014 01:11 PM

I'd take the pro version of what I use now and use something similar to an Eberle-like blade.

AIREAYE 01-07-2014 02:31 PM

Basically my Alex Semin pro stock Easton Synergy(his rookie year) only not the 110 pro flex.

I would like that stick, in a 87 Flex. That would be perfect. Absolutely perfect. Ive never played with such an amazing stick. I dont use it anymore cause I do not want to break it, but I would replicate everything about it. The closest ive found is a P92


So ya, that stick, and mid flex. Probably 87

Ah yes, my favorite player! I was always wondering what his stick was like, especially his curve. I assume he has a big toe curve like the other Russian players, which helps him get his wicked wrist shot off.
Surprised he uses a 110 flex though, he doesn't look extremely strong. His shot is all in the wrists.
Also, aren't his sticks super long ?

My pro stock from his rookie year has an extension in it. I got that from hockey monkey a LONG time ago.

The one I got from 09/10 equipment sale was shorter than I expected, but he probably throws an extension in it himself. It had a bigger curve than the one from his rookie year. Was Bauer. That one was extremely hard to shoot with haha.

A CCM RBZ Stage 2, senior but about an inch and a half shorter, so it comes to a little under my chin w/o skates on (I'm ~6'0). 68 flex with essentially the Crazyovi curve :naughty: except a little, and I mean that, less open.

Greasy Sliders 01-07-2014 08:20 PM

I'd want a v9 blade on an apx 2 shaft with the grip that the v9 has, 90 flex, and an eberle type curve

Eazy for Kuzy 01-07-2014 09:37 PM

It's funny, Greasy Sliders and Guess What both want to use the eberle curve (P89), which is a pretty uncommon retail curve. We also have two people (including myself) that want to use the hard to find ovechkin curve.
Guess we like the rare curves.

althoma1 01-07-2014 11:51 PM

Warrior DT1LT, Velvet Grip, Diamond Shaft Texture, 100 Flex, old retail Smyth pattern (which is based on a Kovalchuk pro pattern), Shark Skin blade finish.

Clarkington III 01-08-2014 12:46 AM

Bauer
-NXG Paint
-G3 shaft/construction
-one95 blade
-Sakic pattern with a hint more toe
-One inch longer than Bauer stock
-90 flex

By rare Ovi curve do you mean the Craziovi I said I'd use? Because I use that curve in real life as well :naughty:

Slats432 01-08-2014 04:32 PM

My son uses a Reebok 20K 85 Flex Duchene curve....didn't like the Toews APX2 since the big toe curve makes his shot go high most of the time.

He did well with his RBZ Tavares until it broke. :(

I use the P08 Ovi curve, and I know that it's hard to find it in Bauer sticks. The only Ovi curve sticks available are the APX, Total One NXG, Nexus 1000 and APX 2. Even when you're willing to spend the $250 for it, there are probably only 3 Ovi curve sticks on the shelves of my LHS. They are harder to come by than a Backstrom or Kane curve for example.

Kudos for using a crazy Ovi curve :handclap:. It's even deeper than the P08 and Kremlin. Do you have any trouble using it. My only concern is the backhand saucer, which seldom lands flat.

It takes a practice or two to get used to it, but I love it. It's so easy to get wristers off it's crazy (no pun intended). Backhands in general are pretty hard I guess but I use a lower flex, 65 and I'm 6 foot, so I can still get some power behind them. And I never really realize the backhand saucers because I don't really do them that much, just a backhand flip out of the zone when I don't care if it's flat or not.

I bought a cheap CCM with a Crazy Ovi and used it once in warmups. The thing was completely unusable. This is coming from a guy who was using Drury curves at the time.

MNWild9 01-09-2014 01:08 PM

CCm Stage 2

75 flex

P08 curve

Well I use the (2011) top of the line Crazy Lite stick with that curve, so that may have something to do with it.

Jarick 01-09-2014 04:33 PM

It wasn't the stick. It was the curve. Well technically, it was me, but the curve was completely unusable for me.

I would really like to try Bauer's toned down Ovy clone though. In theory, I would love a curve that is fairly straight with a moderate heel twist (between Forbserg and Drury loft, but without the heel kink), and then add a bit of toe curve for drags and a little extra something.

Clarkington III 01-10-2014 10:10 PM

The P08 is fun to play(mod edit) around with but I find it hard to keep my slapshot accurate in game situations. Certainly fun during pickup or stick time but I enjoy clappers off the rush and they soar with the p08.
