Low lie hockey blades or sticks for sale?
I was wondering if anyone knows of a low lie tapered blade, preferably a sakic type curve. I'm asking because I want to try to use a longer stick. Does any company make blades in such a config? I can't seem to find any out there. If not, how about a 1piece? Thanks for any input.

Easton's new Chara is a 5 lie, and that's about the lowest you'll find.

But do keep in mind that the majority of top pros use sticks much shorter then most do. And most rec players are using sticks that are too long already.

Warrior offers the Draper curve in a "4" lie which is probably closer to an Easton 5.

I always found I like a higher lie stick for shooting close to the body but when skating I just roll my wrists over to cup the puck and never have a problem. I'm a pretty decent puck carrier.

I'm going to try using a 1-2" longer stick this summer because of my monkey arms and wide shoulders, using a "standard" length stick (chin in skates) means I'm always trying to put my lower hand about 2/3 to 3/4 the way down the stick, so I need to get the stick a bit longer to flex it more.

So I ordered the warrior draper with lie 4 and unfortunatley I'm a little disappointed. The lie is the exact same as my easton se16 sakic (5.5), so I'm a little confused on what scale warrior is using. Also the blade is in my opinion really heavy. Just my thoughts though.

Anyone have some more recommendations?

Easton's Chara or Heatley curves.

That's gotta be a typo on the blade, can you ask if they can swap it out for you? is it a Dolomite or an AK blade?

It was a dolamite DD blade, tapered.

Warriors lies are not the same as others. They have 4 and 5 lies that are more like 5-6 in other brands.

That said, I'm not sure how any of these companies figure their lies. I have both P88s and P92s from Bauer, both are listed as 6 lies, but there is no way they are are the same lie.

Easton's really the only company that's consistent...Bauer for some odd reason thinks people can't handle half lies so they round up (i.e. a 5.5 lie P88 is listed at 6 lie). Warrior is all over the map, but the standard 5 lie Draper should be equivalent to the 5.5 lie Sakic, which is why I'm surprised the 4 lie Draper was the same lie as the 5.5 Sakic. It should have been about a 5 lie on the Easton scale.

2 5 lies.

Does anyone know when the Chara will be available and if it will be sold as a tapered blade? Easton doesn't have anything on their website about it.

Also, does anyone have a mission rafalski? It says its a 5 lie (lower than easton sakic which is 5.5) but is it actually lower? Thanks for all the responses.
