Jagr/Crosby Curve Slapshots

So, I don't want to say "it's not me, it's the stick." But, when I used a Zetterberg curve after using my Koho Jagr curve mostly, I had absoultely no trouble getting decent quality slapshots off. Now, obviously Zetterberg curve is better for that natrually.

But, my question is, does anybody have tips for getting off nice slapshots with a Jagr (Koho, street) or Bauer P92 curve? I just can't seem to get jack squat with them. In this case, I think it is me, but with a certain stick :p

Which Crosby curve? The P87 or P87A?

It's in technique, just practise more...

Whoops. I have too many sticks. The one I'm trying to refer to is the Bauer P92 and the Jagr. LOL

Well first problem is any stick you find with a "Jagr" curve is probably made of wood, and who knows what the actual flex is, and it might be way too stiff or whippy for you. Second problem is any stick with a "Jagr" curve is going to have a blade made partially or completely out of plastic, which is just terrible for anything other than playing a bit of street hockey.

But beyond that, with a Crosby type curve, take the slapshot closer to the heel if you want it to stay low or right after where it opens up to go up higher, following through and leaving the blade open or close for direction.

Yeah. I practice every day, but I can really only get onto the roller rink by my house because I'm an hour away from any ice. That's the main reason I bought those Jagr sticks because I don't want to tear up my ice ones. That and they're only $20 for a decent stick.

I haven't been able to find what the flex of that Jagr stick is. Looked everywhere on it. The P92 is a 77.

Maybe I'll just leave well enough alone until I actually get on ice again and see what I can do with my Bauer 92 there. In the meantime, I'll try to just experiment with my aim of what part of the stick I'm contacting with as you suggested.

Equipment is truly important. You need to feel comfortable. What people meant was about blaming the equipment was its price. You dont always need the most expensive stick or the most expensive protection. Durable and light is the best to go.

Look for the right LIE and curve.

I prefer a slightly curved blade. Zetterberg and Cammelieri curves i had the best feeling with. The more curve does help your forehand but it also diminishes your back hand and i prefer to have a versatile game.

But try a few things and get what feels right
