Looking for a new curve
 
I am currently in the market to find a new curve that suits me. I have been playing with a Bourque curve for about the last 10 yrs. I was told they were to stop producing them about 4 yrs ago and I bought 2 bundles. I am down to my last stick and am currently looking for a new curve. I am leaning towards a Modano, since it is similar, but I just can't get the passes off as good. If anyone knows of any other curves that are close to Bourque could you please let me know.

For those that don't know it is a slight heel curve.

if you want to stay with sher-wood, grab a coffey curve. it's similar to the bourque but with a bit more curve and a bigger blade. the thornton in the ccm is similar as well.

Ill always seem to go back to a Easton Drury.

The Coffey is way too much of a banana for me. I will check out the thornton though. Thanks

Gagne and Nash curves are the only ones i've had the past 5-6 years.

try a frolov TPS if there still out there. good curve great for passes and i can always get off a perfect snap shot.

Crosby is a slight heel IIRC... Sherwood and RBK have a version.

i would just go to a pro shop/hockey and ask for a hockey ball/puck and mess around with a few different curves.

Thanks for the info guys, ended up buying a Spezza Sherwood RM9. It's pretty close and has been working out well so far.

IIRC Bourque is close to Iginla.

Hey Guys, I have been using the coffey curve for years and just love it, can totally control my shot from the point, but my problem is finding blades and sticks with that curve, are there any others out there that would be right close to what the coffey curve is? Thanks for any info.

I think the Hossa (the one I use) has the same curve except nothing on the heel, somewhere on the 5 scale...

OMG yes. I found a couple of old sticks in my closet the other day and one of them was a Sherwood 5030 Coffey model and it looked like a damn boomerang! I can't believe I was actually able to play with that curve...

I loved the Bourque curve, too. Then somebody took my stick from the bench after a game and I never saw it again. :(

I used Montreal's SK curve for awhile and recently picked up a 5030 Sher-Wood with an anniversary edition Bucyk curve. Close enough but not quite the same.

Hahaha its what I'm using right now. I got some 9950's because I"m 6'5 (9950's are ridiculously long) and all they had in stock was coffey curves. I'm looking forward to breaking the three I have (got them on sale) so I can try something new.

Hey guys just to throw an update for anyone who used to use the Bourque curve and is looking for something similar. I have been playing with a Spezza for about 3 weeks now. It has worked out extremely well. Doesn't have the big fat toe like the Bourque, but if you liked that curve and are looking for one to replace it with I would recommend the Spezza.

Lososaurus 12-17-2009 09:23 PM

So I'd take it that Spezza = close enough to Bourque?
