Same thing w/ Easton.. Iginla appeared LOWER than the Sakic and the Drury was somewhere in between.
Then again, I'm certainly NO expert, and may or may not have been measuring the lies appropriately/correctly.
Given the importance of a stick's lie to one's game, it's completely FRUSTRATING as a consumer to find the right lie for you.. an expensive trial and error process, that's for sure.
I have a pro-stock RBK Iginla (IG17) and it does not have a lie on it but it is somewhere in between a 6 and 5.5. Sounds crazy but it literally is in between the two. The Harrow 5.5 I used is closer to a 6 anyway.
These companies should all use the same exact math.
