Reebok dropping P34 (Modano/Hamrlik)?
I don't need a new stick right now, but probably will eventually. I really like the RBK P34 curve.
Someone out there must know what sticks from other brands are the same or similar. Ideas?

A Bauer Kovalchuk ( ) pattern might be close.

PM9 Bauer or Forsberg Easton would be a similar curve but the Bauer is a 5 lie and the Easton is a 5.5. Don't know about Warrior.
Forgot to add CCM Steen. I had one of these a couple of years ago and it was very similar to PM9 or P34.
I've since switched to Bauer P106.

I used to have the Reebok Modano curve, too. I moved on the Easton Sakic and just bought a couple of Warrior Kovalchuk replacement blades from Inline Warehouse.
This is pretty helpful:

They are just changing the names not the curves.

Here's another good comparison chart.

Some of the information on the non-manufacturer produced charts is incorrect. Get the specs from the Reebok site then use the charts to find a similar curve. However, I've noticed that lie, blade length, shape and stick length on these 3rd party charts is often incorrect. For example, A Bauer PM9 is a 5 lie, not a 6. A P106 is a 6 lie, not a 5.
If you want the real dope, you need to go to each manufacturer site to verify the specs.
