The Cannon Pro 17 with improved blade construction - improved durability without sacrificing speed and accuracy.
Lidström (C05) Lapa:
Description: Deep heel curve with an open face and square toe.
Advantages: This curve has many features that benefit defensemen. The square toe is excellent for pulling pucks off the boards that have been rung by forwards. The long length is excellent for getting the puck deep, as well as shooting one-timers and poke-checking. Long blades like this one are also good for getting the puck on the net quickly. Lastly, the C05 curve is great for slappers.
Drawbacks: Most players prefer a round toe for pulling off moves (toe-drag etc). This is also a pretty big curve, which makes passing and shooting on the backhand difficult.
