Iginla curve with an 85 flex..... Because it seemed like a more moderate versatile curve and was as close to my older Koho as I could find. Just getting back in to hockey after a long time off from playing as a kid.

Yeah they should take note for sure. I think a lot if it has to do with beginners looking for some sort of familiarity and thinking that they want to use the same thing Kane or Toews does.

Sher-Wood stick with a Theodore curve. I'm not actually very picky about it, not that glove right goalies have many options anyway.

I like the Koho Jagr curve. Was my best stick when I played ball hockey in college and got very lucky when I started playing ice hockey 4 years ago when I found six wood blades in a Sportcheck bin at 2 for 1 price. Was having a real hard time finding a curve that felt just right on the ice before that.

It's kind of similar to the Sakic curve and I'm pretty sure I tried that but the lie was wrong for me, the tip of the curve was always sitting a little off the ice.

Iginla and Stastny... Stastny stick broke so went to a cheap EQ20 with an Iginla curve and actually really like it.

Exactly why i use this curve, I actually stumbled upon it by mistake, I was using a drury (which I now despise and not sure how i ever used it) ordered a pro stock reebok 11k and they were out of the curve i wanted, sent me a Dougie Hamilton curve instead ended up being a sakic clone. That stick broke but every stick since i have not been able to move away from the sakic or any clone of the same kind.

I went from using the p92 to the Crazy Ovi a little over a year ago. I love that curve this past season I had 51 goals in 65 games. I just feel like I have more control with the curve then I did with the p92.

My shot is best with a P91A/Drury (all shots, slappers, snappers and wristers), but my shot is *almost* as good with a P92/Sakic, and I prefer it for puck handling. Would like to try a P92 lie 5 and a P08.

Modano curve. They may have changed the name of it through the years, but it is and will always be the Modano curve to me.

ditto.

Love this curve and don't imagine I will be switching any time soon.
