The Cannon Pro 17 with improved blade construction - improved durability without sacrificing speed and accuracy.
Advantages: This curve is good for stickhandling and excellent for shooting. The deep curve and closed face makes it easy to cup and therefore control the puck. As for shooting, the closed face on the P88 makes it easier to control shots and keep them low.
Drawbacks: This deep curve makes it more difficult to shoot and pass on the backhand. In close to the net, it is harder to get the puck up quickly than a curve with an open face such as the C92.
Ovechkin (C08) Lapa:
Description: This is the legal version of the old CCM Crazy Ovi curve. It is a mid curve with an open face and a round toe.
Advantages: The C08 curve is as unique as OVI himself – it is great for technical puck handling and sniping water bottles.
Drawbacks: The mid curve and open face makes backhand passing and shooting difficult. Snap shots are more difficult to do as well because of the big curve.
Bottom Line: If stickhandling and hard wrist shots are your thing, the P08 is just what you are looking for.
