Sticks with big blades!

Does anyone know what sticks have big blades? Preferably one pieces sticks but wood is OK. It seems that I always buy sticks with small blades thus making it more difficult to handle the puck when I receive passes. Of course, the blade has to be legit!

Thanks a lot in advance guys!

Cheers

Just find a blade that you like that is longer and get a stick with that blade pattern

Ok. But I'd like a really big one! Those are all almost the same size!

That's because there are rules about how large a blade can be, and most come near to it. You're probably going to have to learn how to catch a pass better.

Your best bet is to look at the description lines for them and pick a blade that says long on length.

It's all about hand-eye coordination and soft hands. Practice receiving a pass rather than trying to find a super long blade.

lol, there are slight differences in size of blades... ive got a lindros curve on my one90..its smaller than naslund curve that is available. i prefer the naslund, which is also a draper on a maniac pro stick, as well as sakic on easton.
