Bauer blade help

I have an x60 stick now with the stamkos curve and i want to give the backstrom curve a try.. however I REALLY like the lie on my stamkos. I noticed the backstrom curve now comes in a 5 lie but I can only find it on the really expensive sticks. Is it only offered on the apx and tOne? if anyone can find a cheaper stick with that curve that would help so much.

Nope, the X:60 stick should be on clearance everywhere however, so you could try that.

Nope, only those 3 mentioned and the Nexus 1000 soon-to-be released in Spring. Every other brand's equivalent are clones.

Another option is to look for an older Warrior with a lie 4 Draper. Warrior measure their lies differently, their lie 5 Draper was basically equivalent to a lie 6 P92, their lie 4 Draper is a bit lower of a lie. On their newest sticks the Draper has been renamed Kopitar, and it's only available in a lie 5, but on their older stick it was the Draper, and available in lie 4, 5 or 6. For example, on hockey monkey you can get a 2011 Dolomite with lie 4 Drapers:

If you shoot left they've got lie 4 Drapers in 85 or 100 flex, if you shoot right they've only got them in 100 flex. It's a top of the line stick, and a very good deal at $130, if they have it in your flex and lie it'd be a good choice.

Good find ponder, I thought the L4 was a very limited release.

Yeah, the lie 5 Draper is basically identical to the P92, while the lie 4 Draper is basically identical but lower in lie.

I've personally always loved the Warrior sticks/blades I've used, and Dolomites especially were very popular (though they've now been replaced in the lineup by the Dynasty). Nice puck feel on Dolos, mid/low kick point, light and well balanced, kick pretty hard. Some people report problems with the blades getting damaged easily at the heel, but I've never had this issue, my guess is that people with this problem are often using sticks with too high of a lie, so they hit heel first on shots. Of course, any stick can break, but I've never had durability issues with Warrior sticks personally.

the lie 5 P92 curve is only available on special order.

you will notice a huge different in shot placement as it is much easier to get the puck up high. i prefer the PM9 fur shooting and passing, stickhandling with the P92 is much easier though
