CANNON Pro18 JR
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 (C74) Lapa:
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.
