Old mission Sundin curve

Sup Hfboards, i was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what the old mission sundin curve is now a days. I had a old mission fuel or something i broke last night. Fully cracked blade from my dust slapshots. I did some light Googleing and found out it was replaced by the new Rafalski, but as seeing as mission went out of business, i was wondering what the comparable curves would be. Also ideas of what new stick to get would be great. Something under $160 dollars ideally please. Any advice is appreciated!

I can't help you out on the blade, but for a stick under $160 you could check out the supreme one80, and the Sherwood T90. If you're willing to spend a tiny bit more a lot of the online vendors have clearances deals on S19, S17, x:60 and a few more top of the line models from last year and years before. X:60 and S19 were running for $169.99.

IIRC it was different than the Mission Rafalski. I think the Mission Sundin was similar to an Easton Drury, while the Mission Rafalski was similar to an Easton Sakic. If I'm right and it was similar to an Easton Drury, then you'll be looking for an Bauer P91A (Staal), Easton Parise, Warrior Kovalev, etc.

As for sticks to check out in that price range, see the other thread here on budget sticks, there are lots of $100ish stick suggestions.

If I'm right about it being a Drury type curve, it should look similar to this:

My understanding is that Rafalski was basically Mission's version of the Easton Sakic curve. The Sakic is now sold as the Hall. In a Bauer it would be P92, which is Backstrom.

I forgot to post this for you. S19 and a few EQ50 are on sale for easton. I didn't check the bauer section but I'm assuming X:50 and X:60 will still be on sale. hopefully you can find the curve and flex you want. they are getting cleaned out pretty good.

I didn't realize Mission made a Sundin curve, but the retail Sundin through TPS was a big neutral mid curve.

That's his pro curve, we're talking about retail curves, which are named after players only for marketing purposes, not because they actually use the same stick/curve/whatever. The TPS Sundin was the most popular retail Sundin curve, but Mission also made a retail Sundin curve for a bit, and as far as I can remember it was their heel-wedge/Drury-style curve.

As for Sundin's actual pro curve, I think he experimented a fair bit with different curves, but mostly he did use a heel-wedge, a somewhat Drury-like curve.
