    Is it possible that Sherwood "Ryan" curve is identical to the TPS "Tkachuk" curve? The specs are the same according to the blade pattern chart I found online & you can see it in the attachment.

    Also if that's the case then Sherwood has simply renamed the Bouchard pattern to Ryan & assigned the Bouchard pattern to be identical to the Easton Zetterberg.

    I'm basically trying to find a "Tkachuk" pattern since TPS sticks are difficult to find these days & especially Tkachuk patterns!

    Thanks in advance.

    They're both probably about the same as the Easton Zetterberg, Warrior Fedorov, and Bauer PM9.

    Sorry, wrong curve, PM9.

    Pretty sure the Bauer P92 (Nasund or Backstrom) are the Easton Sakic, and Warrior Draper. I have a Zetterberg and P92, and they are pretty different.

    Tkachuk blade pattern
    Moderate Heel Curve-Slightly open-5Lie-Round tip-Long
    Looks like the CCM Doan would be a good match to Tkachuk. Only difference may be length of blade.

    Other Similar matches
    Mission- Carter (5.5Lie tho)
    CCM- Doan (medium Blade length)
    Jofa Lecavalier (Seems exact) Lecavalier also has a blade by cmm but has a different lie
    Sherwood- Crosby (square tip)

    Cant find blade stats on Ryan exact, but it is a 5.5 Heel curve though.

    There's a good pattern database here, doesn't have the Sherwood Ryan listed though:

    http://www.modsquadhockey.com

    My roommate has a Sherwood 5030 in a Ryan curve, I can confirm that it is indeed a fairly small mid/heel curve (closer to heel) with a bit of loft (though not a lot). It's quite similar to the Easton Zetterberg, but AFAIK the Bauer equivalent to the Zetterberg/Ryan is the PM9, not the P92. As JRZ DVLS said the P92 is basically the Sakic, it's an open mid curve. Not totally sure about the Tkachuk, but from that picture/description it sure looks very similar to the Zetterberg/Ryan/PM9. In general you won't find the exact same curve from manufacturer to manufacturer, but you can find curves that are damn close.

    Here's a photo of my TPS "TKACHUK" pattern... the difference between this curve & the "ZETTERBERG" happens to be that the Tkachuk is fairly straight from the mid part of the blade to the tip where as the Zetterberg is more rounded.

    Purehockey.com used to have a good interactive comparison chart, but its not there anymore.
