The Lidstrom curve is one of the ugliest curves I've ever saw.

Keeping the puck under 10 ft in the air from anywhere except between the hashmarks is a ***** also.

As a defenseman I love the stick for playing PK/dumping situations. It takes no effort to keep it on the ground, but that can also be a problem whens hooting from the point.

you should take a look at a pro stock sykora curve. THAT is the absolute ugliest piece of equipment ever made.

as for the easton problem, like others have said, he's gone to warrior and if you want his pattern from easton, look for online hockey shops cuz they'll have some left in stock.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!!!!!!!


That is my curve!! My other stick is a Sakic Synergy ST grip and I freaking hate it. I only use it in the warm ups. If anyone woudl give me $75 for it.... it's yours.

Back to Lindstom curve, I have used that curve for years. The loft and curve just work for me. Ugly or not, I have a bomb with wristers, slaps and one timers.

Damn.

According to somebody who has the Easton 09 catalog, the Lidstrom will be renamed as Getzlaf.

Which stick are you looking at? Looking at hockeymonkey, they have the SE16's in Sakic/Zetterberg and I'm all but assuming Zetterberg is replacing Forsberg which replaced the Modano.

I think it's been typical for Easton to only do two or three curves with their initial run of sticks. I remember the Synergy Elite's only coming in Forsberg/Iginla at first.

well i was hoping it would the lidstrom would be out with the new synergy but i love the S11 good stick for the price but i have broken a few i just turn them into 2PS. i wonder if the JOVO curve for warrior is like a lidstrom. i really only like the square toes and the stoll TPS stick is awesome.

Lidstrom is now endorsing Warrior.

The Easton P5 curve is now renamed Getzlaf.

At a glance, I think the Jovo curve is very similar to the Lidstrom - long-ish, square toe, open face, etc....

I love the Lidstrom curve. I can almost pop the goalie's water bottle over the glass when wristing from the blue line

you are correct. I have 4 sticks I play with regularly:
Easton Stealth (original) Grip
Easton Synergy ST (original green)Grip
Warrior Dolomite Pro Stock
Warrior Dolomite Retail

the Eastons are retail Lidstrom curves. the pro stock Dolo is a return from Jeff Tambellini and the retail Dolo is the Jovonovski.
they are all very similar with only the slightest differences in twist of the blade face.
all are awesome sticks.

I bought one which Harrow offers and I must say keeping the puck down is a chore at first. But it is easy to do once you get used to the curve though as with any stick anyone should be able to shoot the way they want to after they get used to ANY curve.

I bought my composite blade as a 2009 clearance closeout to make room for next year's junk. I paid $25 for it .... I have used it for 3 games now and am just getting used to it, it is a tough one to get used to when you are used to a blade without an open face but it is definitely a rocket wirstshot shooter.

Have to concentrate more on slapshots however as to not catch too much of the middle of the blade as the shots wobble instead of sting because of the wedge like aspects of it UNTIL you get used to it. Then things are normal.

Not a bad blade when you get used to it .... laying a saucer pass over a couple sticks into someone's wheelhouse in the slot is a nice easy thing to do with them and wristshots are tremendous in close or far out when you curl the blade down in the followthrough to keep it from going over the net.

You do lose a little on the backhand but you can compensate for that easy enough with mechanics to get a decent one, I like the backhand passing with it too. I like the square end of the toe as well ... you used to see sticks like that for the most part back in the day so it was nice to have that on a blade again.

Generally I would not have bought it at regular price though but as a good deal clearance item I am liking it as a change of pace from the norm.

But yeah not my type of blade and something I will only buy if I get a deal on it like I did on this one.

Somewhere in my bag, I have a 'Briere' Easton '555' with a blade which is similar to the Lidstrom....the squared toe on the Briere cut might even be a bit bigger than what the Lidstrom Easton was. Of course...the '555' ain't exactly a high performace stick...but if you see a 'Briere' on the shelf ...take a look.
