TPS Curve help
Im looking at getting a new TPS stick but they have gotten rid of the Morrow curve so i have gotten it down to either Nash or Frolov curve what would be better for a point man who uses the slap shot more than his wrist or snap shot.

If youre serious about them getting rid of the Morrow curve, Im going to kill someone.

My local hockey shop stoped carrying them hockeymonkey has gotten rid of them and when i called they said they wont be carrying them anymore they got i think perry in.

Think the closest would be the Perry? And btw, the curve doesn't make the shot:)

I dont even skate out that much, I mostly play in net, but seriously, that curve is like magic for my game out.

Actually does quite a bit. If you're looking for a good point man shot, go for a Bauer PM9 or a Lidstrom or a Forsberg, the Lids will give you a rising shot, good for power and pretty decent for accuracy...but you'll lose it a bit in puck control b/c the blade is so big. The PM9 is basically a Forsberg (an old Modano for Easton) but that is pretty good for control and it's a small curve starting a bit at the heel. I run with a Sakic right now, as a defenceman who loves to rush the puck, I think I am going to pick up an S17 soon or maybe swing a deal on a Stealth b/c they're coming down in price but the Sakic will give you good snap and wrist potential but you'll lose on slap shot accuracy and power (which makes me wonder why I got it in the first place b/c I am also a big shooter).

I have a lidstrom curve and i like it but TPS is still my favortie in sticks so ill stick with them with frolov but im thinking of getting either a stealth CNT or snyergy as the price is going down alot to see how easton OPS are.

I'm a Lidstrom user, and since it's impossible to find any blades in that curve I've resorted to using the Perry. It is pretty much exact, only the toe is a little different. It's not as square as the Lidstrom, but it's not really round either. Frolov is more Drury IIRC.
