Might the lie of my stick be hurting me here? I use a pretty low lie, usually around 5 or 5.5.

Thanks!
Stickhandling on dryland is also great because you strengthen the muscles used in handling the puck. Sometimes I hold my stick with the opposite hand and realize how weak my forearm is on that side.
