sakic curve in bauer

guys I have used a couple of ST's both with a sakic 100 flex and now want to maybe try a one95 or something comparable to the durability of the ST (my green one is bulletproof) I love the Sakic for how quick the puck comes up but for tight low passing it leaves some to be desired. I was thinking of a 105 Naslund curve but am open to trying other brands as well. Anyone else been down this road?

I have been using the naslund curve for a while, seems to be a good mix of passing, with the ability to snap it up high when your in tight. also is good for getting the puck up quick when your trying to clear the it off the glass. its the p92 curve. some times it says naslund, but it will always say the pattern #.

Bauer Naslund (P92) is the Easton Sakic. From what I've heard. Just as the Bauer Malkin (PM9) is the Easton Forsberg, which I know from using both, I'd suggest the latter if you're looking to improve your passing.

talked to the sports store near me today and they have Warrior Dolomites and Kronic's on sale for $159 cad. He recommended a draper curve. What do you guys think, is the kronic the more durable, better stick?

If the price is the same, take the Dolomite over the Kronik.

If I were you I would stay with Easton and get an SE16 or get a Bauer one95. I have tried Warriors and mission sticks and if you are used to the feel of an Easton stick you aren't going to like it.

Naslund is the same at Sakic to answer your question.

I'm a manager at a hockey store and I pay close attention to the sticks and blades. I also track the cross brand equivalencies in blade patterns (because there's very few reliable sources- I often take the time to measure new or unfamiliar ones).

We had some new One95 Naslunds come in today, and I was curious about them and the SE16 Sakics, so I happened to compare them before noticing this thread.

The Bauer Naslund curve is the same as the Easton Sakic curve, with a very, very slight difference in lie (more due to the curvature of the bottom of the blade than the shaft-blade angle). Also, for others interested, Zetterberg = Forsberg = Malkin = Modano = a few other patterns. Most of the Warrior patterns generally have shorter lies than the Eastons and Bauers.

Supremes are a little heavier throughout the shaft; the Supreme blades are thicker and heavier than the Eastons, which adds a little unwanted inertia during quick stick handling. That said, due to their construction, the blades on the Supremes appear to be tougher than the blades on the SE16s, but your mileage may vary.

Our best seller has been the SE16, due to the outstanding feel for the puck.

= Heatley. The Iginla is similar also

Not exactly.

The Forsberg/Zetterberg/Malkin/Modano/etc are 3/8" curves, the Heatley and Iginla are 1/2" curves. There's noticably more curve to the latter two. The Iginla and Heatley blades are identical, except that Iginla has a higher lie (5.5 to 5).

I've compared my One90 to an S17 at a shop, they were identical. Factory difference? I made the same comparison to the Zetterberg and it looked right.

Edit: I compared a Heatley to My PM9, Then my PM9 to a Z, the the Z to the Heatley, and they all looked the same.

Forsberg/Modano/Malkin are also the Federov in Warrior/Inno.

Heatley and Iginla are mid curves, similar to the P88.
The PM9 is a small heel, similar to the Forsberg/Zetterberg.

I use a Draper. It's a bit more open than the Sakic.

Between the two Warriors, I'd take the Dolomite.

I use both a Sakic and a Malkin switching between the two sticks. The curve is almost the same the Malkin is slightly more closed or Sakic is slightly more open.
My Malkin is a bauer (store (Sniper) stick) and it should help with your "tight low passing".

Malkin and Sakic are nothing alike :/. The Malkin is a Forsberg clone.

I just got a easton s5 in sakic and I'm pretty much in love with the curve, glad to know that Naslund is the Bauer equivalent.

Ok if you say so.
I have them both next to one another and my untrained eye says that they are close.

malkin is a flat heel curve, sakic is a huge mid to toe open curve. sakic is a 5.5 lie, malkin is 5 or lower. aside from being both round toed they couldnt be more different. malkin is the forsberg clone.

More open than the Sakic? Going out on a limb here, but I doubt you're a defenseman...

Are there others that are more open in the mid to toe than the Sakic?
