Curve Identification

Help me identify this curve. It is a Powertrek MC. I want to find a replacement for it in a higher end blade model. As far as I can tell, it is a 3/8" mid-heel with about a 5.5 lie.

1. Is that what it is?

2. Does another company make a lighter, STANDARD blade (high end model) in those same dimensions or close to it? A 5 lie doesn't quite do it for me and a 6 would be preferred.

Looks just about identical to Easton Cammalleri/Bauer Stamkos/Warriors Savard.

Id say its more like an Easton Parise, Warrior Kovalev, Reebok Phaneuf, or Bauer Staal.

I have the Staal and it is definitely not it. This one has a pretty closed face.

^This^

Also know as the Easton Zetterberg (they are transitioning), Bauer PM9 (formerly Malkin).

I believe I have seen "MC" listed as a match to these curves.

It's way more flat than PM9 blade but I doubt there's anything closer among Bauer patterns. Not many retail blades are that flat.

Taking a second look at it, you might look at a Total One blade in the P106 pattern. From the blade charts it looks like a fairly flat blade and lie 6 like you were looking for. With other brands you might look at Reebok (6K) P42, Warrior (AK27/Spyne) Burrows/Savard or Zetterberg, or Easton (ST) Zetterberg. They're lies 5 and (Warrior) 4 though. Not sure how lies compare between brands.

Check blade charts yourself to see what you like: http://www.hockeymonkey.com/blade-pattern-chart.html

Oh really? The chart makes it look pretty closed. My bad.

Yeah, i do see that. Possibly a Sherwood Ryan. The curve is not "curved" enough to be a true PM9.

it may not be a pm9 exactly but i think that may be the closest call. i tried to look up pwertrek with no results for blade patters

Definitely not a zetterberg. Looks like too much of a heel curve as opposed to a mid-heel and not quite enough curve in general. I've seen that curve before somewhere, but I can't quite think of what it is.

If you want to get fancy, find a Combat SC or an older Sherwood Spezza curve. It was like a PM9 but a bit more heel and a bit more open with a consistent loft across the blade, exactly like the picture you showed. But PM9 is pretty dang close, lie excepted because I don't know what lie that is. If you can shoot with that blade, you'll shoot fine with a PM9.
