    Hand placement with flex profile

    Any difference you think between a "mid kick" that is higher like say a supreme vs a more true mid like a nexus?
  2. So I like to shoot with my hands in stickhandling position and don't like to slide my bottom hand down for wrist or snap shots. Are there any sticks that work better for this type of shooting style? I also play defense so I would like something that is decent on slappers. Thanks.

    CCM Jetspeed stick

    That would be cool. I had a G3 a while back and that was a fun shooting stick as well. Might have to give the Jetspeed a shot. Thanks for the responses (most of them...). That went off the rails there for a minute...

    CCM Jetspeed stick

    got it. what would you say is a comparable shooting stick? I'm currently using a RibCor and I like it, but it's low kick, and doesn't really give that smooth/effortless motion when I shoot. If that makes any sense...

    CCM Jetspeed stick

    Do you mean soft as in not very stiff? or soft as in damp and not very lively? I think that was the confusion. I took you to mean not very stiff.

    CCM Jetspeed stick

    I'm not a fan of soft blades. Thanks for the heads up on that. Any suggestions on finding something similar to the Nexus 1000?

    CCM Jetspeed stick

    Sorry if this has been posted already, but I can't find anything on it. Anyone know what the Jetspeed stick plays like? Flex? Blade feel? Etc... I'm hoping it's similar to the old Nexus 1000. Thanks for any help.

    Base Nasty R questions

    I'm loving the Nasty R, it's great. In terms of flex, I've had a different experience than you, but it's all about personal feel. For me, mid-kicks tend to feel softer than low-kicks in the same flex. I originally had a Nasty and Supernatural in both 85 flex. To me, the Nasty felt a bit stiffer than the Supernatural, I'd say about 5 or so. But I'd say the Nasty R is softer than both. I dropped down to an 80 flex on the Nasty R because of a wrist injury and old age. The 80 flex Nasty R feels about 10 softer than the Supernatural at 85, but it's a bit hard to say because of the different flex profile. The Nasty R is so much nicer to load on wristers and snappers, but slappers are still good, reminds me a lot of the SE16 Needless to say I'm waiting for another discount sale to get more...

    Warrior Stick Customizer Program

    I emailed warrior to get pictures of some of the "pro" curves. Still waiting... He did point me to the hockeygiant blade pattern chart which does have the old retail patterns still, so that helped.

    Warrior Stick Customizer Program

    Trying to order a stick on the new Warrior customizer. Doesn't seem to have an option to purchase the stick, just 'save the design' and 'Find a Retailer'. Am I missing something?

    Total Hockey Files Bankruptcy

    Man, that brings me back... I used to hit my head on stuff walking around in there. Bought a couple XN10s there, besides other stuff. That was a great hockey store, miss that place.

    Base Nasty R questions

    Thanks for the replies, exactly the feedback I was looking for. I think I'll stick with the Nasty for the time being. I like stiff blades too, so maybe I'll give the supernatural a shot one of these days when there's another deal going around.

    Base Nasty R questions

    Thinking of trying the Nasty R, coming from the original Nasty, and wondered if anyone has tried both for a comparison. How's the puck feel (I know it's subjective) compared to the original Nasty. Also, I know they said the softened up the blade a bit for better toe shooting. Any opinions on how this affects slapshot/one-timer accuracy? if at all? Wondering if the blade isn't as good for the more powerful shots because of the softening up. Thanks.

    CCM Tacks Stick

    was thinking about getting a tacks stick and in reading through the thread I'm trying to determine what the flex profile is most similar to. It seems to be a Nexus? is that still the overall consensus? thanks.
