Neutral Face Heel Curves

Hey guys,

I was wondering if any company makes a retail heel curve that doesn't have an insane amount of loft.

I recently got a sherwood true touch with a pp09 blade pattern, which is a straight heel curve like a drury, but with a lot less loft, but even that face is way too open for me.

How open is the P106 compared to the pp09?

Any retail heel curves with neutral faces?

I know they make mid-heels with pretty closed faces, I use a pm9, just wondering about a pure heel though.

The P106 is more open, so you probably won't like it. Maybe you can find some old Warrior Vaneks.

The PM9 equivalents is about as closed as they get. Why do you need even less? Maybe you could try turning your wrists more as you follow through?

I don't need less of an open face than a pm9, that's good, I use that curve.

I would just prefer a heel instead of a mid-heel.

My shot control is fine, I just like neutral faces better for passing and stick handing, and prefer a pure heel curve for shooting.

It's just from what I see all of the retail heel curves have really open faces.

Hard to find, but perhaps look for blades with either the "Lidstrom", "Jovanovski" or "Getzlaff" pattern. Heel curve, square-toe.

Reebok has the Duchene curve that is quite similar to Bauer's PM9
