Kcvalchuk Warrior Blade?

I went to buy a Warrior stick off hockeymonkey and they don't have the curve i wanted (Weight). They have Kovalchuk or Jovonovski and I dont see any Kovalchuk Blade on the Warrior blade pattern chart. Does anyone have one or know what they look like?

According to people on MSH, Kovalchuk is the Robitaille renamed

I just got a new one tonight. It is labeled as Robitaille but the curve looks slightly bigger with the curve starting a little closer to the heel. I think a p88 bauer curve is the closest to the kovalchuk.

I got the new Warrior stick and I like it so far. I'm coming from Gaborik/Smyth curves so it takes a little getting used to but I can't afford to chase around euro curves anymore. The Kovalchuk has a nice little hook to it just not anything huge like the previous sticks I've used.

Yeah I used to use the Gaborik hook too, the transition is pretty easy.

That's probably the pro stock. Extreme toe hook. Way past the NHL curve limit. If you still have it, people will pay out the wazoo for one of those things, a lot of people love 'em and there's no retail curve close.

I'm overskating the puck when I stickhandle and I've whiffed on a couple of wrist shots. I really like the new Warrior stick though, the puck really comes off similar to the Easton SL.

Before this year I had used an easton Iginla curve for a long time, when my synergy broke early this season i decided to go another direction and get a Warrior Dolomite with the Kovalchuk curve. I was worried because i was so used to the Iginla which had less of a curve than the Kovy but i couldn't be any happier with my Dolo, its awesome and after a practice or 2 the larger curve showed no difference in my passes and my shots were flying. I think that the Kovy curve is a very good one.

Also Half Life is correct, i just got a Vapor XVI with a p88 curve and when i put it next to my Dolomite the blades are almost identical so if you want to see what the blade looks like than check out the p88.

This is the reason why companies don't sell pro stock curves.
