Your pro stock stick

Thought it'd be fun to start a thread on this to see everyone's preferences. Let's pretend you make it to the NHL, and you can get an endorsement deal with the brand of your choice, and get to order custom sticks with any feature you want. What would your pro stock stick be ?
I'll start :
For me, it would be a Bauer Total One NXG (mid kick), 77 flex (senior length) but with rounded corners like on the APX 2, a bit of grip towards the handle and a matte finish on the lower half of the shaft and tac spiral.
The blade would be a P08 curve but with a higher lie and a slightly shallower curve.

Fun idea.

Easton RS I, with grip not too much though
Sakic/Hall curve, a bit more closed at the toe
Flex would be between 70 and 80 depending on my strength

I'd take the pro version of what I use now and use something similar to an Eberle-like blade.

Basically my Alex Semin pro stock Easton Synergy(his rookie year) only not the 110 pro flex.

I would like that stick, in a 87 Flex. That would be perfect. Absolutely perfect. Ive never played with such an amazing stick. I dont use it anymore cause I do not want to break it, but I would replicate everything about it. The closest ive found is a P92


So ya, that stick, and mid flex. Probably 87

Ah yes, my favorite player! I was always wondering what his stick was like, especially his curve. I assume he has a big toe curve like the other Russian players, which helps him get his wicked wrist shot off.
Surprised he uses a 110 flex though, he doesn't look extremely strong. His shot is all in the wrists.
Also, aren't his sticks super long ?

My pro stock from his rookie year has an extension in it. I got that from hockey monkey a LONG time ago.

The one I got from 09/10 equipment sale was shorter than I expected, but he probably throws an extension in it himself. It had a bigger curve than the one from his rookie year. Was Bauer. That one was extremely hard to shoot with haha.

A CCM RBZ Stage 2, senior but about an inch and a half shorter, so it comes to a little under my chin w/o skates on (I'm ~6'0). 68 flex with essentially the Crazyovi curve except a little, and I mean that, less open.

I'd want a v9 blade on an apx 2 shaft with the grip that the v9 has, 90 flex, and an eberle type curve

It's funny, Greasy Sliders and Guess What both want to use the eberle curve (P89), which is a pretty uncommon retail curve. We also have two people (including myself) that want to use the hard to find ovechkin curve.
Guess we like the rare curves.

By rare Ovi curve do you mean the Craziovi I said I'd use? Because I use that curve in real life as well

My son uses a Reebok 20K 85 Flex Duchene curve....didn't like the Toews APX2 since the big toe curve makes his shot go high most of the time.

He did well with his RBZ Tavares until it broke.

I use the P08 Ovi curve, and I know that it's hard to find it in Bauer sticks. The only Ovi curve sticks available are the APX, Total One NXG, Nexus 1000 and APX 2. Even when you're willing to spend the $250 for it, there are probably only 3 Ovi curve sticks on the shelves of my LHS. They are harder to come by than a Backstrom or Kane curve for example.

Kudos for using a crazy Ovi curve . It's even deeper than the P08 and Kremlin. Do you have any trouble using it. My only concern is the backhand saucer, which seldom lands flat.

It takes a practice or two to get used to it, but I love it. It's so easy to get wristers off it's crazy (no pun intended). Backhands in general are pretty hard I guess but I use a lower flex, 65 and I'm 6 foot, so I can still get some power behind them. And I never really realize the backhand saucers because I don't really do them that much, just a backhand flip out of the zone when I don't care if it's flat or not.

I bought a cheap CCM with a Crazy Ovi and used it once in warmups. The thing was completely unusable. This is coming from a guy who was using Drury curves at the time.

Well I use the (2011) top of the line Crazy Lite stick with that curve, so that may have something to do with it.

It wasn't the stick. It was the curve. Well technically, it was me, but the curve was completely unusable for me.

I would really like to try Bauer's toned down Ovy clone though. In theory, I would love a curve that is fairly straight with a moderate heel twist (between Forbserg and Drury loft, but without the heel kink), and then add a bit of toe curve for drags and a little extra something.

The P08 is fun to play(mod edit) around with but I find it hard to keep my slapshot accurate in game situations. Certainly fun during pickup or stick time but I enjoy clappers off the rush and they soar with the p08.
