I USE THE CCM Ribcor, the new edi­tion. I have what a lot of peo­ple call ‘The Kane Curve.’ I haven’t switched since pee­wee. It used to be called ‘The Lin­dros Curve,’ when it was with Bauer, but then I switched to CCM and I’ve kept the same curve. I’ve been us­ing it for­ever, and I just change the flex. These days I’m us­ing a 90 flex. I feel like I can han­dle the puck well with it, and shoot­ing with it, my shot is re­ally ac­cu­rate. I tried switch­ing flexes be­fore on the stick, but I just felt like my shoot­ing wasn’t the same, and I felt like it was tak­ing longer to get my shot off. I like the flex I’m us­ing now be­cause it’s a nice quick snap. This curve, I’ve al­ways felt most com­fort­able pick­ing cor­ners and pick­ing spots. I’ve tried chang­ing curves a few times just to see if my shot would be harder, and I can’t seem to pick cor­ners. That’s the curve I’m stick­ing with for a while. When I was in the USHL we had to switch to CCM, and I tried switch­ing back to Bauer, but it just didn’t feel the same. I don’t do that much with them, ac­tu­ally. I just tape up my knob and tape up the bot­tom of my stick, and if I don’t have to, I won’t tape it for prac­tice.
