TPS Curve help

Im looking at getting a new TPS stick but they have gotten rid of the Morrow curve so i have gotten it down to either Nash or Frolov curve what would be better for a point man who uses the slap shot more than his wrist or snap shot.

Think the closest would be the Perry? And btw, the curve doesn't make the shot

I dont even skate out that much, I mostly play in net, but seriously, that curve is like magic for my game out.

Actually does quite a bit. If you're looking for a good point man shot, go for a Bauer PM9 or a Lidstrom or a Forsberg, the Lids will give you a rising shot, good for power and pretty decent for accuracy...but you'll lose it a bit in puck control b/c the blade is so big. The PM9 is basically a Forsberg (an old Modano for Easton) but that is pretty good for control and it's a small curve starting a bit at the heel. I run with a Sakic right now, as a defenceman who loves to rush the puck, I think I am going to pick up an S17 soon or maybe swing a deal on a Stealth b/c they're coming down in price but the Sakic will give you good snap and wrist potential but you'll lose on slap shot accuracy and power (which makes me wonder why I got it in the first place b/c I am also a big shooter).

I have a lidstrom curve and i like it but TPS is still my favortie in sticks so ill stick with them with frolov but im thinking of getting either a stealth CNT or snyergy as the price is going down alot to see how easton OPS are.

I'm a Lidstrom user, and since it's impossible to find any blades in that curve I've resorted to using the Perry. It is pretty much exact, only the toe is a little different. It's not as square as the Lidstrom, but it's not really round either. Frolov is more Drury IIRC.
