The "R+number" is the model name of the TPS line of products. Higher number means better and more expensive product.

To a limited degree your inability to slapshot or lift a backhand may be caused by your gear, however the big part in this equation is simply skill. I would, first and foremost, work on your technique. Do not use lie, curve or flex as a crutch. Yes some curves can help with certain things (pm9 makes backhands easy for example) but in the end proper technique will let you do it with almost any curve available after a short adjustment period.

There is no magical stick that will let you "do it all" in 5 minutes. A great slapshot video can be found here:

or simply look through this thread for suggestions and then go out and practice!
