New Bauer Curves

Just wanted to see if anyone out there has the answer to this one.

I've been using the Bauer Naslund curve for as long as I can remember now. I picked up five One95's (still the best stick I've ever tried) and they've lasted me this long but now that I'm down to just two I wanted to pick up some more. Problem is with Naslund retiring I think they've renamed his pattern and I don't know which one it is now. Can anyone help me out?

It would be the P88 no? 6 lie, moderate mid curve, open

I thought the Naslund was the P91 but that's why I'm confused. I thought the P88 was the Lindros curve but I could be wrong.

I dont know now, i thought P91 was more a heel.

I thought the Naslund was a mid, maybe a heel?

This is why i like to know the exact stats of my blade instead of just the name. Makes it easier to find a replacement in the future.


Im pretty sure they are both 6 lies though.

P92 is a Sakic variant, mid-toe, 6 lie and will, I think, be offered in 5 lie too soon. P88 is now Kane. There are p91 and p91a curves, which are different, see here http://www.hockeymonkey.com/bauer-blade-patterns.html

ah...the P88 is neutral not open.

So P92 is the one.

the p88 is now the kane (was lindros)
the p92, what your looking for is now the backstrom, it was the naslund.
im 99% sure about this
close or clones of these include the warrior draper, and the easton sakic. hope this helps.

I have two p92's, one of the new vapor x:# series and one of the old model XXXX's and i can confirm it is the curve you want...


http://www.bauer.com/gear/player/sti...tern=P92#shell

compare that curve to this chart:



the only difference is the backstrom is a little longer

Here is another chart, so it looks like the P92 is what you're looking for.

p92 Naslund is exactly the same as p92 Backstrom.

Retail curve names have absolutely nothing to do with the player they're named after. Just a side-note.

Did anyone suggest they did? I just wanted to know what the Naslund pattern was renamed since I couldn't remember the # associated with it and it appears the answer I was looking for is Backstrom. I appreciate the input from everybody; thanks guys.
