Are there ANY good websites that compare weight and feel between pro stock and off the shelf retail blades?

I ask because these are noticably different in feel than the other retail blades I have which are one Bauer One90 blade and 3 Easton ST (Synergy) blades.

I switched to composites in December and am relatively new to the stuff, I used wood until then which I have banished to the closet as they are inferior in almost every way to composite blades.

As for an Iginla pattern this is not the same as the retail pattern as you've said. It looks not as deep a curve and the blade is angled at the heel further back than most blades are.

This is the photo from the page I posted above for the IG-17 pattern.
