Well, I agree but the thread title is kind of a beacon drawing jokesters in. If the OP or a moderator could fix the thread title that would be greaaaaat.

I really thought the topic was, "What's the biggest cure for hockey suckitude?" That's why I'm here anyway. I haven't been playing my best lately.

The one on MSH doesn't do it justice, I've held it in person - it looks even bigger.

Lol, the curve you would put on your stick when you play floor hockey in gym class!

I always remember the mad dash to grab one of the 2 or 3 good sticks in the pile.

Or perhaps you are confusing a vaccine for a cure.

You'll find if there's no cure to some fatal disease you die rather quickly...

Can't describe the curve and it broke at the end of last year but I think the Euro name says it all.

I have the remnants of one as the plug in my H4799

I'd love a big curve with a closed face. I can hit the 9th row all day long with my Coffey, but I want to consistently fire big nasties at ankle level.
I can do it with my Coffey, but not consistently. But when they ring off at ankle breaking levels, boy howdy do they feel good.
unfortunately I tend to open up my shot too often and they go too high.

Pro stock Malkin and Semin aren't the biggest. They're just slightly deeper than the Kreps curve. I think the Yakupov curve from Warrior is equivalent.

Now the Crazy Ovi curve from CCM has to be the biggest I've ever seen.

I remember back in the day(very early 90's) that the Sherwood Superhook was a bit ridiculous compared to anything else that you could buy off the shelf.

Not sure how it compares to today's oversized curves, but back then it really stood out. Especially because you could just go into any shop and buy it.

No, I can't. But I can't shoot a backhander with any stick I've tried.

I love my Crazy Ovi. So much that I just bought three more on clearance. I have a backup Graf that I've tried and tried to like, but just keep coming back to Crazy Ovi.

Big toe curves are addictive, aren't they ? A year ago, I was using a P88. Now, I use the W28, P08 (broke it a few weeks ago) and P14.

Can't roof one for the most part, but if I really drop my shoulder into it I can get a good mid-high blocker shot off. The hardest part is making sure you have the puck on the heel when you shoot it because that is the only part that is flat enough to shoot one

And I agree with bunnylebowski on this one, it is a really addictive curve. Had a regular Ovi curve that was too stiff for me so I went to get a new stick, thinking I would get a Sakic or Backstrom Bauer, but then saw another CraziOvi and just had to get it.

It's also a ***** and half to tape.

I have a total one with an ovie curve. And no I can't do a backhand with it unless you really get under it
