I just switched from the Bauer Lindros/Kane/P88 to Mission's Rafalski because I saw a very light Fuel on clearance at the Flyers Skatezone. I played with it Sunday, had 2G, 2A, and we won 12-8. My wrist shot just got a lot faster with this stick, and my backhand improved (had a goal where I roofed a backhander. Going to be sticking with this curve for a while.

If you don't look for it, it will suddenly appear At least thats what happened to me. Keep going tho, you'll eventually get it.

What do people think of the CCM Octo gun with the Tavares curve? Has anyone tried it out? I have been thinking of getting one but i would like some input on the sticks tendencies. Any feedback is appreciated.

I use an Ovechkin right on CCM VYL stick. I have a habit of getting the puck up high so I went with the Ovie that has less curve and the face is a bit more closed... Nice shots and improved my backhand abit.

Mid, 9/16", closed/neutral. AKA Gaborik/Coffey.

CCM Thornton/RBK Bergeron (P30) too, C21 from Koho, all good for me.

Im using the Bauer P106 Gagne again on my X:40, it seems perfect, I can make passes and shoot better with it. The P92 I used before had too much curve and I couldn't pass as well

Great slapshots with those ... I've used them before and still have 3 woodies here with the Thornton. I have used the Coffey which used to be the Sherwood P.M.P. 5030 woodie for quite a spell. Cheap sticks that were great sticks.

I love how the blade finds the puck, so to speak. I get a fair deal of garbage goals, amd these hooks seem to always cradle the puck perfectly, no matter how quickly or sloppy the shot/opportunity is.
