I think you are over estimating 5 feet.

Think about how long the stick is and think about how long your reach is. Now think about how far 5 feet is.

I understand where you are coming from but you would hardly need to plant in order to reach 5 feet. My bet is the poster said the guy was closer than he really was.

And your shot at me "Might work in C league play" tell me how many slappers do people get to wind up 5 feet from the goal in whatever league you play in?

So yea it would work in C league play.
