    I've been looking around epucks/icewarehouse for a blade and I'm still not sure which one to get.. you guys have any recommendations? I'm looking for a deep toe curve -- I don't mind if it's illegal (actually.. I'd prefer if it was an illegal curve).

    Not sure that there are that many retail toe curves. Most retail curves are heel or mid.

    Depends on your price range and what you want a greater emphasis on: performance vs. durability.

    Try the TPS Nash curves, they have a pretty nice toe curve, IMO at least.

    Are the toes rounded or squared off?

    The toes are rounded on the Nash curves.

    I love the Kovalchuk curve. I used one, but I broke the stick, and didn't feel like getting another one. It's a nice curve, makes getting wrist shots up high really easy.

    the yzerman and thorton are big curves all around - both with toe hooks. both are squared off a bit though. sakic is slightly more mid than the nash - but its still got a pretty good toe, also round. there really isnt a great selection out there for toe curves - i like them too.

    I know the Easton Yzerman curves have insane curves all around, haven't tried any Thornton blades. The Sakic curve I find more mid with a really slight toe curve, it really doesn't have a crazy twist or anything to it.

    If you want a really wonky curve try any MacInnis sticks, I'm not quite sure what's going on there.

    Those expensive blade are over rated, use a wooden blade, the feel is far superior. :teach:

    I love the St. Louis blade. If I found it in a composite I would probably never buy any other stick again.
