Yzerman Stick Blade

Hey everyone. I am in search of a Sr. Yzerman stick blade and can't seem to find one anywhere. All I ever see is Jr. unfortunately, and I also plan to use it on the street. Wondering if maybe anyone can help me out, thanks.

Yzerman got discontinued by Easton unfortunately. That was/is my curve as well. The other stick companies have curves that are similar or the same:

CCM: Thornton
RBK: Amonte/Bergeron
Warrior: Smyth

I think SWD's Coffey curve is pretty close.

Coffey's the same curve as well, I just never see Sherwood blades offered at the stores I've gone to.

Yea i used to use those for ball hockey. Sick curve on those things. But too bad they are discontinued, but these are the blades that resemble it.

If you can find a Gaborik get it, it's exactly the same curve, the lie is a bit lower though.

Easton never made a separate Gaborik replacement blade if I recall correctly. They just renamed the curve/tweaked the lie for the 2005 Stealths/SLs/Synergy one piece sticks. Original poster seemingly was asking about replacement blades. But yeah, I have a Gaborik SL Grip. I think there was another guy on this board that bought like 10 of the Gaborik sticks on eBay just because they were discontinued.

I have some stealth's, no idea if any replacment blades were avail.

Honestly does a curve matter that much when playing ball hockey? I don't think so. Anyway another curve you might want to look into is Bauer-Lindros. It's sorta close to Yzerman.

I have to stick to a closed face curve when playing ball hockey. It's all personal preference. The Lindros is like a mild version of the Yzerman.

Speaking of similar curves on discontinued sticks, anyone know of something similar to a Koho Jagr curve? I'm ok for now but I'll need to migrate to something else eventually. And whatever that is it needs to have the same lie.
