Hockey Sticks

I need help picking out a new hockey stick.

My style is lots of Slap-shots and hard wristers from distance, i use fancy dekes.

Is it the stick or is it the type of Blade.

It's the person using the stick. Ask yourself this question: why doesn't every NHL player use the same stick?

Because it's all personal preference.

I have tryed Bauer, CCM, Reebok, Louisville TPS, Mission.

I haven't tryed Easton yet. I have like the Bauer, and CCM a lot but they both have had stuff i don't like. I just can't find the perfect stick.

With the Bauer my wrister is good, but my snapper was not any good.
The CCM i have a wicked wrister and a good snapper but i can't do any good with the slapper.

All the other sticks i mentioned just didn't feel right.

What type of stick are you currently using and what type of curve are you using as well? Maybe it is your mechanics for taking the slapper as opposed to the stick/curve.

Right now i have a CCM vector 6.0, it has a Lecavlier curve(a heel curve which is how i shoot best) With the Bauer i think it was my mechanics but i don't know why i can't shoot the slapper, the one-timer is good but not a slapper.

that has nothing to do with the sticks, it must be the curve. What pattern were you using with the Bauer?

It was a lindros which is a mid-heel, I am probally going back to bauer since i loved the stick just could get the snap-shot, but it was probally my mechanices.

Go with a shaft/blade combo. You can find a stick that works and just change the blade accordingly.

the flex of the stick also matters... just recently switched from stiff (good slappers, not so good wristers or snappers) to intermediate (less on my slappers, much better with quick wristers/snappers)...
