The curve helps the power and accuracy of your shots.
the curve from the shaft to the tip of the blade
For equipment legality purposes it is generally accepted that if you lay your stick down so the forehand (the inside curve) is on the ground a puck should not, or with resistance, pass through between blade and ground.
in my opinion the p92 curve from bauer and this is the same curve as sakic/hall for easton
i like backstrom
if you place your hokcey stick on the floor, with the curve bending upwards. as if you can see what the hockey looks like on the front. Then see if you can get a 2p coin through the bend i nthe stick. If you can it is ILLEGAL. :)
you measure a field hockey stick by putting it next to your side and seeing if it is the height from your feet to your hip
No, it has a very slight curve to it.
when the blade of the stick is on the ground cut it where your nose is when you are on skates
The taper is either how thin the blade gets, or the curve of a blade.
one that you can lay flat and roll a dime under
you take a blow torch heat your blade up then jam your stick under a door and lift the stick to the type of curve you would like and let cool and enjoy
There is no such thing as an illegal curve in the nhl anymore. However you don't want to big of a curve because the bigger the curve the harder it is to backhand and the harder it is to stick handle on your backhand.
Curve of the blade...curves forward away from the player...to determine if you are a lefty or righty - hand that's closest to the blade determines this...
For Hockey sticks you need to measure from you chin when you are wearing skates and from your nose when not wearing them. That will tell you what size stick you will need. It should be in inches. Hope that helps.
Well my opinion is that when hockey sticks were first made they pulled a curve onto the stick and now if you want to do a wrist shot or a slapshot all you have to do is curve your hand and shoot.
it is a better shooting design so you can shoot faster and have better accuracy.
There is no "best" hockey stick. The quality of the stick is determined by you, the consumer. For example, Player A prefers the Warrior Dolomite stick because it is light weight. However, Player B prefers the Easton Synergy because of the curve on the blade.
A centimetre is probably best
this is a very easy one it would mean that the stick right handed
every player is better on their forehand. the curve of the stick gives you better puck control which gives you more accuracy. That's why its hard to lift the puck on the backhand since the curve is on the other side
