View Full Version : What is the best blade for raising the puck?

Right now I have a Bauer Supreme 340 Blade, on an Easton Z-Bubble. I need a blade that will help me raise the puck higher on slapshots. I play roller hockey. Thanks, all replies greatly appreciated!

It's not the stick, it's the shape of the blade that's important. Usually a defenseman's curve (like the Easton Lidstrom) that has an open face will help you get the puck up quicker. But remember- MOST goals are scored one foot off the floor, not above the goalie's shoulder!

Technique is really all you need. Follow through on your shot and point your toe where you want the puck to go. Also, don't let the puck get too out in front of you. I get a lot of lift with the Easton Yzerman pattern... too much for my taste actually... the Sakic pattern is by far my favorite. Just enough lift and not too much curve.

Mission Blue, Easton Linstrom. Right on. They have the unique form of "alot of heal bend" and "alot of heal out" with very little toe bend. That is a slap shot blade.
