Looking for a Pro-Stock Warrior blade, Left-handed Saprykin or equivalent toe curve
 
Does anyone else know of a blade with a very nice Toe Curve? I'm more and more turning into a shooter and I experimented with a friends toe curve and love it more so than a mid/heel. I know that the Saprykin warrior curve is pretty nice, and would like something like that.

Heck, a crazy illegal curve would even be within reason, there's no real rules on curves in my league. At least they don't check for it.

I have considered grabbing a few of my old composites and trying to torch them into a good curve, but I figure I would be better off just trying to buy a pro stock blade, heat up my dolomite, and put in a new one.

Anyone want to chime in?

the smyth is a pretty nice toe curve, the shanahan is pretty good too

the smyth is a retail warrior

The Smyth is discontinued and pretty much sold out everywhere. Managed to snatch up half a dozen before they were all gone. :)

Hockeymonkey has a ton of Mission and Warrior pro stock blades right now, and they have pictures or descriptions for a lot of them. Check it out and see if there's anything you'd like (lucky you're a lefty, there's a ton more options for you).

its now a kovalchuk

Wrong. Robitaille was renamed the Kovalchuk.

I have 2 pro stock Saprykins I got from HM that aren't to my liking. They're more of a toe curve, almost a toe-kink (like Straka or Havlat use) than the previous Saprykins I got from HM that were basically Smyth curves only much deeper. If interested, I can take some pics of them. Never even inserted in a shaft.

*edit*

They're pretty similar to the curve posted above.

I'm pretty sure HM is sold out of Saprykin curves.

And to double check, if I was to buy a Dolomite off the rack, and a replacement blade, I would have no problem heating it up, taking out the blade and heating a new one up and putting that in, would I?

I have a Dolomite that is essentially new, and have no qualms about doing this if it is to work.

is there glue on it? if there is then there shouldnt be a problem, unless teh dolomite is a ops

I'm pretty certain it is just a normal shaft/blade combo as most Dolomites are (that I know of)

It's possible, but I wouldn't recommend it. Yes, the Dolomite is a fused OPS, but it will take a lot of heat and effort to pull out the blade, and you run the risk of overheating and weakening the shaft especially if you've never done it before. I would just go buy a new Dolomite or any tapered shaft.

But if you don't care really care about that stick, go ahead and try it and let us know how it turns out. There's an entire thread dedicated to this topic on a certain other forum.

No, it isn't.

That they are.

The Saprykin is the nicest curve I have ever used, I absolutely love the shot that this curve produces.

Replacement blades, try Cooke, Martin, Murray, and Pro 02-005.

The Beech is a great looking curve, but HM is out of blades. The only have OPS with the Beech curve.

Not sure, I guess you could call them though.

you're thinking of the Kovalchuk pro.

The Retail Kovalchuk/Robataille has a different blade shape than the Smyth, as well as a higher lie and a mid curve. Totally different.
