It's the angle of the blade to the shaft. Most are around 5.5.

Angle. With the stick of equal lengths and blade on the ice a 6 is more upright than a 5, the two most common lies IIRC.

Not meaning to hijack the thread, but does anyone know of a site that shows all the curves/lies? I remember coming across this one interactive site that allowed you to pick a lie, type of curve and it would show you the different sticks.

I don't think lie comes into play very much anymore on players sticks. I think with goalie sticks it's still a pretty big thing.

I think it plays a big part in whether you're going to handle the puck well or not...especially if your lie is off when you bend at the knees. The puck has the ability to slide under your blade if the lie is off causing mishandles.

Best way to choose a stick...walk into a store with your skates on and crouch into your normal hockey position lol. Stickhandle a little and keep an eye on the bottom of your blade to ensure it is flat and flush to the floor for the most part.

I need a new stick as my Graf composite's lie is way off.

I dont think so.....might not affect passes and as much but shooting and making moves yes. If it's too high then your not gonna be taking advtange of the full surface of your blade and the puck is just gonna slip under when you shoot. Deking too, too low of a lie, and you try a drag, it'll be tougher to pull off.

I'm not saying it's not useful just that most companies dont seem to mark it on there sticks or anything, and like an above poster said its usually around the same lie all the time. Only sticks I've seen it marked on is Eastons.

most companies mark their lie, but not all are based on the same measurement. BTW that sheskatehard site is inaccurate.

Lie is as important and possibly more important than stick flex, which is probably more important than actual curve. If you have the wrong lie you will most likely flutter pucks, miss a lot of passes and have a lot of pucks roll off your blade. Quick test is to check your tape for wear patterns.

Agree, I can get used to a different curve and deal with a stiffer flex. The one thing I have a very hard time with is the wrong lie. For example, if your lie is wrong and the toe of your blade is off the ice. You've in essence shortened the length of your blade. Not a good thing if you're someone who takes a lot of wrist shots.
