    After we shot around yesterday, turns out my blade has split in half, right down the center.

    If you like the loft of the sakic blade, but want some better stick handling, i would sugguest the easton Drury curve, it had less curve and almost as much open toe.

    Maybe it's just that I'm total garbage( as opposed to mostly ), but I couldn't shoot topshelf with the smart-hockey balls we were using.

    Plus, is the ball hopping over my stick my fault or is it something I just have to get used to with open toe blades? Because looking back, something with some less curve feels like it would be a better fit and maybe not-quite as open face, from the way you described it, the Drury pattern could be it.

    If the ball bounces over your stick you need to work on your hand-eye coordination more than anything. You may be more raw than I thought. Just practice, practice, practice. Also, only stickhandle on flat ground. Also, if the X's are too advanced for you right now, just try this:

    Try some kind of lube next time you practice stickhandling.

    buy this its called puck fly i use it all the time in the summer cus i dont play ice that much and it keeps my hands fresh

    you can use it on any surface weather its driveway, carpet or a roller hockey rink.

    btw its only for stick handling so you cant shoot with it but it will defiantly help you stick handle better cus it feels just like a real puck on ice
