since im a righty, all left hooks look deeper than they really are. Have you used a toe curve before? IMO they are easy to use as you let the stick do the work and just sling the puck from the toe... that is if you get a proper flex rating.. if its too stiff, it may give you adjustment issues

heres the mirror for your reference



i've used draper/kopitar curves for the past 3 years. i recently got a backstrom as well which i haven't used yet, but they're more or less the same curve. i heard that they are easier to use, but just worried about my shots going high. that's okay tho i guess since i fan on about half my shots anyways

I have been using backstrom/Hall/Nug Hopkin curves for the past 5 years. I am known to shoot about 1 foot over the net, even from center ice. =(

The mid curves you listed above are nothing like the toe of the kermlin or pro hossa etc... The landeskog curve seems to be a deeper version of the backtrom, as I was hoping it would have more of a toe and closer to the Easton E28. I have used the Hossa Pro from Base for many years and it was so easy to adjust to that.. The puck always just placed itself in the toe of the blade.

The ovechkin P08 from Bauer was a nightmare for me. It was more of a heel curve and was deceiving.. wristers fluttered, but slappers were rockets. Had to give it up as my shots and passes were unpredictable.

As for the Kremlin, I never expected it to look like that as I have only seen it in the crappy Manufacture pictures (that never resemble the real thing). It looks like a tamer version of CCMs crazy ovi. I would have thought it would look more like Warrior's Smyth/Gionta. Wait.. the Kremlin is Warrior's version of CCM's crazy ovi isn't it? I got the Kremlin mixed up with that other toe curve all the pros are cloning... damnit... can't remember

KREPS curve... that's the curve I was thinking of when I read Kremlin. The Bauer P08 looks alot like the Kremlin you have. If it is, good luck

I used the ccm crazy ovi for a bit, wasn't man enough for it. The base hossa is perfect for most of what I need

Might not be possible. You will have to take a look at the inside of the shaft to see if it will accept the hosel shapes. I am sure a google search or a Modsquadhockey.com search will answer your question

Won't work unless you chop like 1/3 of the stick to fit a blade in. But if you go as far as that, the flex point and shaft length are fucked.

Yea I hate it when I break my one-pieces . It seems so wasteful when only the blade breaks and there's almost nothing you can do to fix it
