What you want is a really open curve, meaning when the heel is on the ground you see the face of the blade. This helps you get a lot of lift. The Bauer P92 and P08 curves are both open. The CCM Nugent-Hopkins/ P91 is pretty open.

Those are all current model curves. If you can find a Warrior stick with a Kremlin curve or, like what I have, a CCM CL with a CrazyOvi curve. Both are ridiculously open:

CrazyOvi:


Kremlin:


Also look at pro-stock sticks, there are usually a lot of pretty open curves.

Hope that helped. Just remember that some of these crazy open curves, like the CrazyOvi, makes backhands a lot harder, considering 2/3s of the stick is facing down... But they are still awesome.
