View Full Version : good curve for puckhandling?
07-14-2003, 07:21 PM
What is a good Easton curve for stickhandling and puck control? I have a Drury curve on my Synergy, and I like it for shooting. The puck though seems like it wants to roll off the edge of the toe on drags though. I've heard the Shanahan was pretty decent. thoughts?

The Federov has a better toe to heel lie and will help lots
when toe dragging the puck and is also great for shooting as well...

I personally like the Yzerman and Modano curves.

I have the Drury curve and have not adjusted to it yet. I had the Madano curve before. I am not the best puck handler but i can get a good shot off with it. If i catch the puck on the toe sometimes it gets airborne. I figure once i get use to it.

I use Shannahan Easton, Cole Mission ( same as Shannahan) and Recchi CCM.. They are all pretty comparable...

I think you are likely to get a different answer from everyone on here.
You are right - although normally a neutral curve (like a Modano) is easier for all around stick handling, but there are so many varuiations because everyone likes theirs "just so" that it's almost impossible to say which is the best.
Borrow some different sticks and see what suits ya - if you can use them long enough to get used to them.

I personally love the Sherwood Coffey blade.I have been using this pattern for three years now and have them on all my spare shafts....

I use the Mylec one piece JET FLO. A simple stepping on gives it unlimited curves. Check it out at www.mylec.com
