Warrior Blades- Lupul vs. Granlund

Recommended Posts

I've been searching and searching for a cheap Warrior stick to try, and I had settled on the Lupul pattern because it is the most similar to the PM9 Stamkos/Malkin Bauer pattern, which is what I've been using for years.

Yesterday I went shopping and one of the sales reps pointed me to the Granlund pattern, saying that it was actually a little straighter and sounded like it would suit my Lie needs as well because I skate more upright.

Does anyone have any experience using these two blades? Anyone smarter out there than me that can confirm whether or not the Granlund pattern has replaced the Lupul? Thanks as always.

Cursory search turned up this. Data was copied from www.inlinewarehouse.com

Face:slightly open
Toe:round
Length:medium
Lie:4

Granlund is way more open, has a higher lie, and is a much more rockered blade. They're both heel curves but that's where the similarities end. 

If you want a PM9, get the Lupul.
