Crosby vs. Kovalev curve?

I just picked up a RBK Crosby curve online and was wondering how different it is from the Warrior Kovalev if at all or if anyone uses it.

To me it seems like it's slightly deeper, a smigeon less open, and the toe seems a bit more squared, other than that I don't see the difference.

I've been using the Kovalev curve for a while, but I wanted something slightly different (more closed because I tend to roof my shots and with a more squared toe for digging pucks out of the corners).

Are there any other differences that I'm missing?

A real Crosby curve or a Crosby branded curve?

A real Crosby curve is almost completely straight. A branded one is just a general curve with his name on it.

The RBK Crosby curve. That's the only one I know of that they sell.

Very true. I have a real Crosby curve and it is VERY straight. I like it a lot actually. I hate having a stick that looks like a damn banana.

I am the opposite. I cant stand a strait blade. the Coffey curve is sweet.

I think I used to only use Coffey, Bourque and Lemieux blades when I was younger. Now, since I play in floor hockey leagues that require plastic blades, I gotta deal with the Canadian Tire Eric Lindros sticks Well, theres also a Jagr stick, but they are always sold out

I used to use one of those...
Switched to an RBK Datsyuk. It's so much better. I find it's much more accurate. Easier for slappers too. Coffey's are too curved.
