Curve identical to Drury's?

Easton has trimmed down the models of drury sticks...are there any curves out there similar, if not identical, to drury's? thanks in advance

I used the Drury pattern for a little while, until about a year ago. I haven't been able to find a heel curve with that much openness since. If you don't mind the square toe, the Easton Lidstrom curve may be worth taking a look at.

Otherwise, I've been using the Easton Sakic curve, a 1/2" mid curve that's pretty open.

The Drury pattern is my favourite!!!! RBK - Phaneuf is very close, CCM - Ovechkin is almost a clone, and I got an Inno MegaLyte with a Kovalev pattern, and it is almost the same as Drury as well. ANy of these should work for you.

CCM - Ovechkin is pretty spot on.
Ballistik makes one called the HCR that is ok as well.

TPS- Tucker; CCM - Ovechkin; RBK - Phaneuf: Sherwood 9950 - Crosby: Warrier - Kovalev. Keep in mind that there's slight difference in lie compared to easton. My experience, however : Easton Drury has no substitute.

Bauer's P91A pattern is a Drury clone. The P91 pattern is the same curve as the Drury but with a different lie.

I used to use the same pattern, the CCM Lecavalier is very close.

Yes, it's pretty close, but Bauer stick flexes differently and you get a different sense compared to Easton. My best stick is now Easton Synergy Elite shaft with wooden Vapor XXXX P91A tapered blade. Wood gives you great feeling for passes and XXXX is rigid enough. The problem is the cost. Combo takes close to $150.
