If your good, you should be able to do with any curve.
Based on the person, its personal preference.

I use the Naslund for NB and that works well, though I can generally do it with any curve.

I use the toe drag all the time and my blade is basically straight. You don't need a big curve to do it.

I use the Lindros. I don't toe drag but I've heard good things.

i find it easier to pull a toe drag with blades that are more curved. straighter blades are harder for me. Eventually, if you practice enough, you should be able to do toe drags with any kind of blade.

It is tricky to pull it off with a square toe like a Lidstrom. But other than that, whatever blade you practice with most will be the best.
