What blade pattern/stick prefernce do you have?

In light of the other thread about company preferences, (http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=533985) I wanted to know everyones preference on stick attributes. Since there is too many things for a poll, here's some outline:
Flex
Length
Lie
Blade pattern
Full blade tape or half? (Or other)
You're attributes (Ht Wt)

I'll go first (NB One90):
96 Flex
~54 inches
5
PM9 St. Louis/Malkin
Fully taped blade
5'8" ~ 185ish (Yes I am a slob )

Your turn.

* I don't really know, dumb I know. I bought my favorite stick at Play It Again Sports after the end of the season - back in the original IHL days. We had the IHL Cyclones here in town. I bought two Louisville wooden stick with a really deep heel curve and very twisted (I think that's open I can never keep it straight). It is my favorite pattern but I can't find any store since it was custom for that player whose name is not on the stick. There is a pattern number on the stick but I don't know how to find out what it is. I broke one stick so now I don't use the other until I find an exact match for it.

Dude, if you don't like the curve would you be willing to sell the stick? We can get into details in PM's, but I went from a Sakic, to a Forsberg, to the Malkin and I LOVE it. It's my favorite curve, and the 5 lie is just what I need.

It's funny, since the Nazzy is similar to the Sakic, your going back to it while I'm trying to get away from it.

Yeah, I'd definitely be willing to sell it. Because I don't like the curve I've just kept it on the bench and only actually used it during two pick-up games, trying to hope I'd adjust to it, but it just hasn't happened. The Naslund curve was just right, the first day I used it I just felt "joy" every time I took a shot and now like 8 months later, when I used the Malkin curve for 40 minutes and than grabbed my Naslund off the bench, I felt that same joy as soon as I let a shot go.

You went from a Forsberg to Malkin? Pretty drastic, you basically went from a flat board to a boomerang.

The Malkin is the new name for the PM9, which is Bauer's version of the Forsberg.

Is it? I knew the Malkin part, The Malkin/St. Louis/PM9 are all the same curve (NB). Then there is the Forsberg (Which on the One90, looked more open than the PM9). I have an Easton Forsberg curve now, and it looks very similar to the Malkin, but different than the One90 Forsberg. What I mean is Malkin/St. Louis/PM9 = Easton Forsberg =/= NB Forsberg.

Curve? Who uses curves? I still use a straight blade. Great for passes and back-handers.

Is it? Hmmm my apologies then. I use a Forsberg too, I don't think I could manage a curve with a big hook but to each his own.
