Hey XxLidstromxX ... just curious, you mentioned you were a younger player and I was wondering since you mentioned that you break a lot of blades to the point of fearing shooting a slapshot and wanted to know what flex you are buying your sticks at and more importantly how much length you cut off of each one after you buy it?
This is important because I was just watching a stick review where the guy reviewing it works or owns a sporting goods store and mentioned younger or smaller players buying a stick at a flex they think they use and cutting too much length off which increases the flex of the stick dramatically and also creates a bad kickpoint causing blades to break easily.
I was just wondering what your setup was if you haven't mentioned it already someplace.
EDIT maybe it wasn't you who was breaking a lot of blades with a slapshot. I can't find the post now. Anyhew if this question doesn't apply to you just ignnore it.
