Has anyone used the ProCurve? It is sopposed to curve the blade of any hockey stick to an identical curve each time. It is sopposed to make toe curves, heel curves and you can open or close the blade. If anyone has any insight please reply! Thanks

I have one. You have to have a lot of patience. They are weird to use at first but you get the hang of it pretty quickly. Don't count on it curving your blade exactly everytime but most of the time it does work just don't get frustrated. All in all I do like it because I can curve different blades into my pattern.

Does this only work on wood blades? Curious how you can do this without cracking the blade?

I haven't tried a graphite blade but I heard it is no good for the blade. The wood blades you just heat slowly, so you don't burn the wood or fiberglass, and than there are knobs on the curving device that you turn till you get the desired curve. After you are done you have to allow some time for the blade to cool and settle. You can use other objects to curve blades (door jam) but the blade "curver" really helps because it will hold the blade in the same position over night to make sure it cools to the blade position you want.
