If you get a wood stick or blade w/ the ignila curve, you can always heat it and try to do things differently to figure your preference
The Cammalleri/Zetterberg/Forsberg is the PM9 equivalent, not the Iginla. The Iginla has a higher lie.

I started off with a Crosby and I found that I prefer a more open blade with a heel curve.
All three curves are completely different... only the Zetterberg is lie 5 and only the Crosby opens up in the middle, there's nothing 'middle of the road' in blades, it's personal preference!

Start from there, play for a while and try out different curves once you're used to what you're using now.
You just described 1/2 of the curves out there!


Jarick, please close this thread, there is honestly no point here anymore. People should just read your stick guide...
