Heatley and Chara curves...

Im getting an S19 and I dont know which curve I want.

I've used the iginla, sakic, zetterberg and ive used the samsonov/pronger which is similar to the lidstrom/getzlaf and i dont want the drury because its a round toe heel curve but what about the heatley and chara?

i think im leaning toward teh heatley because its a square toe on the bottom but i cant seem to get a good picture of it but id like to know if ayone has any experience with it. how does it shoot? the samsonov/pronger i had i would put everything off the glass plus i dont shoot clappers that much

anyone have any experience with it and know how it is?

I had Heatley blades the wrong lie but they shot nicely. I prefer my Getzlaf craziness though ... it did take a while to get used to it so shots don't hit the glass 4 feet above the net haha.

The Heatley is a great pattern, I just wish I could find one in a 5.5 or 6 lie.

I had a Heatley se16 and as far as the feeling of the stick and my experience with the blade, it was incredible. The stick as a whole is a piece of **** but the heatley pattern is great, especially on , say, an s17.

In your case, an s19 Heatley would be a dream.

If you have used an Iginla then the Heatley would be a smooth transition. I used an Iginla but unlike the guy above me I prefer a number 5 lie to a 5.5.

If you can channel only the good mojo that comes with having the Heatley name in your hands I think the world is at your fingertips.

The new Heatley is supposed to be a bit longer and a bit more curve than the current Heatley/Iginla and 5 lie. The new Chara is supposed to be similar to the Sakic but less open.

I love, love, love the Heatley pattern. I use a 5 lie and it isn't an issue at all for me. Perfect balance between forehand/backhand/sauce/stickhandling. IMO, of course.

With the lower lie, you really just have to have your hands closer together when stickhandling, or you need to get down lower on your shots. It's not a difficult adjustment to make.

Heatley blade is the bomb. Perfect mix between shooting, stickhandeling and passing

Big fan of the Heater curve. Nothing too fancy, does everything well. Great for shots and dangles. Does nothing exceptionally well, but everything well.
