Search a Blade like "Coffey"

Hi Guys,

here's my first post...
I'm writing from germany, since our season is starting soon i wanna order some new stuff.

One mayor thing will be to change the stick.
After Bauer XXX Stick with P88 blade i changed to Warrior MacDaddy with Smyth blade.

Now i fell in love with the coffey blade on the sherwoods, but i don't really like the sherwood sticks.
Is there a Blade from Easton which is nearly the same like the coffey?
I saw that Yzerman and Gaborik are pretty much the same on the graphic...

I look for a long, closed blade with a deep curve from Easton or Warrior (there's no I guess), any ideas?


btw. It has to be a one piece, i don't want to have a shaft + blade.

Thx

That ludacris you'd use a stick like that, but still know about the Coffey curve.

I admire is to a great degree. I Won't do it tonight, but I will give you the exact Sherwood PMP 5030 SC dimensions on the curve.

I remember back in 94/95 when I was 13 to 14 years old and the coaches at training camp for the Weyburn RedWings gave me that Coffey stick. I'd one time and shoot a puck like Al Iafrate on crystal meth.

I doin't know if Iafrate ever had a twig, and Coffey himself wasn't a blue line shooter. But his sticks were pure gold in the day.

The CCM Thornton is very close to the Coffey. The Warrior Robatille is pretty close...little less curve though. The TPS Afinaginov and Mission Rafalski are close too. The TPS being a bit more open and the Mission being a little less curve.

The Easton Gaborik is a bit more open. The Yzerman isn't as deep and both are pretty hard to find.

I loved the Coffey curve myself. The Thornton was also a favorite of mine. I didn't care much for the Warrior Smyth even though I owned two at one point.

I used to use the Coffey curve all the time but when I changed from Sherwood the closest I have found is:

1. Recchi curve from CCM
2. Forsberg curve from Easton

Thx for the first thoughts...

It seems to be pretty hard to find the right blade.
I think im gonna order a RM8 with the coffey curve and an easton with either the gaborik or yzerman curve and just find out myself which works the best...

Feel free if you have some ideas

Best choices would be:

Thorton CCM
Bergeron Rbk
Gaborik Easton

My NB Malkin Curve is exactly the same as my ABS Easton Forsberg blade.

Are you on crystal meth? I read your post 6 times and some of it still makes no sense at all.

I loved my Coffey Curve!! Right now, I've found that Easton Gaborik's are pretty close to it, however right now, I'm using an Iginla blade.

Easton Gaborik, which is no longer made, RBK Bergeron and Smyth Warrior are the patterns I use. I bought the new Sherwood RM9 I think with the Coffey curve, just doesn't feel well balanced and is a little too heavy. There is no way a Forsberg curve is similar to the Coffey curve, he's got a passers curve.

Saw this thread a little late but maybe someone else looking for the same answer will read this...

I was a Coffey Sherwood blade addict and when they started to make one piece sticks I hated all of the curves.

Then I found the RBK Amonte curve.. it's wicked as hell and as good as the Coffey curve (about 3/4).
