Curve Help

Does anybody know if there is a Toe curve, with big depth, and an open face angle.

I have looked a little but not a lot.

Any help is appreciated.

I'd say a Sakic, it has more of a mid-toe curve but the toe is angled out. I think a Gaborik too is like that, but more of a toe curve.

Try the Max Afinogenov from the TPS line hockeymonkey doesnt have pics of specs on his blade but i have it and its pretty much what you are looking for.

Nobody makes a retail toe curve anymore. Sakic is close to what you describe but more of a mid. Shanahan (if you can find one) is what you want, so you can get custom blades from Christian or custom sticks from Bauer.

What I do is just use a Forsberg and shoot off the toe, and with some adjustment it's close enough to the Shanahan I tried.

Shanahan and the Bauer P10 were the last ones that were real toe curves. Still can get them on eBay, but at a premium. I remember snapping up all the closeout blades at the rink shop last year and slapped them up on eBay. But talk about demand for the Shannys! I paid $7 each and sold them for $40+

I'd say look at a Gaborik curve. It is a huge mid-toe curve that is very slightly open. Toe curves are really hard to find.

I found the Shanny blades to be weird. Maybe b/c I used them 6-7 years ago at times and they weren't as good but they just didn't feel consistent, I think the blades then were more so steamed so the curve could be wonky. Just my experience though, nicely done!

I forgot to mention the Gaborik, I think that's probably your best bet, although I heard they're not the greatest for shooting slapshots, you should have a great time shooting wristers though.

Idk if I'd describe a Gaborik in any way other than banana.

are the shanahan's really that hard to find anymore? I bought like 4 of them sometime late last year so I haven't been in the market for any blades recently. If so I'm gonna look for more right away.
