Stick gurus and blade with rockered toe?

I read the blade sticky and I need some advice.

1. Does anyone make a blade with a rockered toe, i think this would help my style a lot.



I skate very fast and low to the ground and am primarily a playmaker, use a short stick so i think i need this:

Lie: 5 or 6
Rocker: near the toe
Curve depth: Shallow with curve at heel or mid
Closed face
Toe shape: does not matter too much

Thanks for any help, broke my stick so it's time to buy a new one.

Bauer P14 has a rockered toe but it opens up somewhat. Only rockered toe curve at retail I can think of. Unless you can find an old Warrior Smyth (or get one off their builder).

This. Good luck finding the P14 though, it's not common.

Go to the hockey store with the most sticks available, in Canada it's pro hockey life and go nuts, ask the guy to find you a P14 and look for a P14.

Isn't a P14 similar to the draper in Warrior? just curious

No a P14 is a shorter and more 'tapered' version of the P92/Draper with slightly more toe kink and a rounded square toe.

Oh ok, I thought that the draper was the shorter one and the P14 was longer, other way around lol.

They're REALLY close visually. It looks like someone took a P92 and chopped off 1/2 of the blade, then took a file and shaved/rockered the toe portion. Haven't played with one. Debating if I should pick one up with my bonus/tax return or stick with the P92. I like the P92 but would like a more rockered toe, but then I'm worried I'd get under the puck too much
