I play forward in a C league and defense on a firewagon team in a B league and I use the Chara/Gaborik curve. If I have no time to get off a shot the big hook makes it easier for me to get a good wrist/snap shot off and I don't have a slap shot. So like others have said it depends on what type of player you are and what you're used to. I started using the Coffey curve more than 10 years ago so the big hooks aren't a problem for me since I know how to receive passes, how to pass and how to shoot with it. If you're going to war it's nice to know you have a weapon you like and it won't let you down when you need it. Switching curves takes adjustment and in some cases it just isn't the right fit for your game.
