How many sticks does a beer leaguer need? Just curious..

 

"need"

 

I don't think any beer leaguer needs full NHL customs, but they sure are nice to have. On the other hand, A CERTAIN MANUFACTURER offers one-off custom sticks, shafts, and blades with a wide array of options for those picky beer leaguers who can't find their preferred curve/flex/etc. off the rack and who don't want to break the bank. /shameless advertising

I think Perron dropped his modified Kovalev and is now using a modified Sakic. And to be fair, I don't think the Kovalev will ever appeal to the masses - it's a pretty unusual pattern, tall blade or not. Still, I'll definitely bring it up, and I agree it would be more usable with a taller blade, especially at the heel.

I voted for a few things, because I like trying out all different kinds of curves.  In no particular order:

 

-Definitely want to try the Ovi pro

-Kovalchuk pro

-I like the BC27 *a lot*, but the blade is so skinny, I have had some problems with catching passes on crappy central Florida ice.  So a BC27 with a taller blade would be sweeeeeeet

-Benn pro

-Taffoli pro

 

I really would like a blade that starts curving right at the heel, slight curve through the middle, and a bit of a toe hook. Round toe, good amount of rocker, lie ~5.5, long blade. (see my comments on the BC27 above)

 

Other curves I've used and liked: Radim Vrbata pro, David Perron pro (I'm a righty, obvs.)

 

I usually buy 2 sticks at a time, and probably buy ~6 sticks a year.

 

Pretty cool idea to have a taller BC27. Only thing is, it would be massive and it would look pretty wacky haha! The blade is longer than a Lidstrom right now.

Here are some pics of the Laine Pro (or at least, the pattern he used in Finland):
