I spent many nights out on the rink getting my slapshot to rise, and now I have trouble keeping it down! I've scored a few goals and gotten some assists with a slapper about a foot off the ground, nothing with the riser, although last week I nearly pulled the Brian Rolston coming down a breakaway...goalie wasn't too thrilled.

Play around with your bottom hand placement on the stick. Keeping it lower seems to help. Might be that you're moving the kickpoint lower and allowing the stick to whip faster. I also try to roll my wrists and control the direction of the puck with the bottom hand. Keeping it pointed low on the follow through and keeping the blade face closed seems to help.
