The CANNON CX3 2018 model - a true one-piece stick for hard shots and accurate passing, as well as great durability!
Bäckström (C92) Lapa:
Description: This is a big mid curve with a open face.
Advantages: This is the stickhandling curve. Toe drags, dekes, and straight up dangling will be easier with the C92, because you can cup the puck better. The C92 is also great for snap shots because of the deep mid curve. The open face also makes it easier to raise the puck when you are in tight close to the net. Lastly, this curve is great for saucer passes.
Drawbacks: The deep curve and open face makes backhand passing and shooting difficult.
Bottom Line: If stickhandling and quick snap shots are what you're looking for, the C92 is for you.
Erkinjuntti Blade (C74):
Type of Curve: Mid/Toe
Equivalents: Bauer P28 "Eichel", Easton E28, Warrior W28 “Yakupov“, True TC3 & TC4.
Advantages: The P28 is one of the more widely used patterns in the NHL. This is perfect for players who love to use the toe of their blades. It is great for toe drags and shooting off the toe. The P28 is widely gaining popularity because of its stick-handling control and ease of going top shelf.
Disadvantages: Like all large curves it may be harder to use the backhand of this curve. Many of you may find it hard to control your shots and keep the puck down on the ice.
Conclusions: If you like toe dragging and going top shelf this is the curve for you.
Kane Blade (C88):
Type of Curve: Deep Mid Curve with a neutral toe
Similar Curves: CCM/Reebok P40 “Hossa” , Easton E36, Sherwood “PP88 LS”, Warrior W88 “Zetterberg”, True “MC”
Advantages: This curve is great for stick handling and for shooting. The depth allows you to “cup” the puck giving you great control while stick handling. It has a nice smooth curve allowing for great accuracy on shots as well as passes. The closed face allows you to keep pucks low and true.
Disadvantages: Because of the depth of the curve it may be harder to lift the puck on your back hand. It may be hard to lift pucks when you are close in towards the net.
Conclusions: This curve is best for beginners and players who want accuracy. You can pretty much put the puck anywhere you want to. Both passing, shooting and stick handling are great.
