Warrior Dolomite prostock dilema

Im currenty lookiing to get a prostock warrior dolomite blade and shaft. However, I'm having trouble finding a left handed curve that is good for rising shots and wrist shots. Can anyone help me?

Would a Camalleri pro stock curve be good for this, it has a big mid for a curve and the face is open.

The thing is im trying to avoid falling into the problem I have now, My Naslund curve isn't too good for my retail One90.

Best part about having a shaft is you can change the blade until you find the blade that works best for what you want.

From the images i've seen of the Fedorov pro-stock it seems to have a pretty good hook to it so should be good for wristers, http://s194614808.onlinehome.us/gall...p?g2_itemId=14 that site has some good images of a lot of pro stock curves, so check em out see what you like.

I've seen a few Fedorovs. One was a toe, one was a heel and another was a weird relative mild mid. Sounds like you need more practice on your shots than you do a new curve. The One90 shouldn't give you problems with getting the puck up. That said I've found the Lidstrom easiest to do what you are asking, so try calling and asking if they can match any of the Prostocks to it.

Just get something with an open face. That will help you get the puck up quicker.

Look there for sticks if you want a pro stock

I recently just bought a Warrior Shogun with a Draper blade (close to your naslund). It's taking a while for me to get use to the new curve but hopefully I'll get the hang of it soon enough. If you've never used a curvy stick I suggest you keep it that way and go with a curve your used to. My next stick will definately have less curve (probably a federov curve). As for helping you get the puck up, trust me the blade pattern won't help a lot with that. You just gota practice. But as mentioned above, a open face will help a bit. And remember, the more curve you get, the harder it will be for you to do your backhands.

A blade that has an open face will defintiely help get the puck up. Ive read many a posts about people who switch to an open face curve and have trouble keeping the puck down enough to get a shot on net. Some will put the puck higher some you have to practice with a bit.
