Lie angle

I have too high of a lie, a 5...

just wondering.. what does it do to your game?

I desperately wish easton came out with a 4..

but, what can I do? lol


How big of a difference does lie make?

depends on how you skate. if the blade is not touching the ice that much, it can be difficult to stick handle shoot and what not. it can affect your game alot if you dont have the right lie

The lie is as important as the curve and something you should never overlook. The wrong lie will add wobble in your slapshot, wobbly flipflopping passes or put unwanted dip in your wrister.

To find my lie years and years ago I just watched my blade tape to see where the most tape wear was on the bottom of the blade after playing. if your tape is worn on the toe your lie is too low and on the heel it is too high .... it should be somewhere in the middle of the blade. Like if the toe was worn for me with a 5 I would then try a 6 and voila ... that was my lie.

I keep the puck closer to my feet too and am more upright in skating style so I could even use a 7 if I could ever find one. The only one I have seen is if you order a custom made One95 Supreme stick through the Bauer website which is the Blake Wheeler curve and lie.


I have 3 or 4 5 lies here I use as backups as I bought those on clearance, a slight adjustment while playing and I can use those but I prefer not to as it is not my natural lie.
