Need a new blade, what to get?

Well my blade for my TPS R4 broke and im looking to get a new one. The one I had on it was a Frolov curve, it was an alright curve but nothing to special. Any ideas what brand/curve I should get, lmk. Thanks!

Well in terms of curve, the Frolov was basically the Drury from Easton (now Parise), similar to the P91A Staal from Bauer or Kovalev from Warrior.

In terms of blade, is your shaft a standard or tapered?

Well alright then, just keep to a standard blade in the aforementioned curves and you're good to go. Are there any particular characteristics of a blade that you're looking for?

I love my P92 Backstrom (Bauer) I do a little bit of everything with it.

You need something that's good for everything? Haha if that were the case, this single miracle pattern will be the best seller. Honestly dude, it's been repeated so often here about curves: Try them. It's personal preference.

Check out the thread a few down about snap shot patterns.

Get both...curve is personal preference and the blades are so cheap. You can find out what you like.
