I've said that for a long time now ... I shoot really good slapshots and see guys at shinny or in games look to see what I am using or whatever. It cracks me up because I can shoot with anything if the lie and length is correct for MY shot.

yeah some sticks help with energy transfer for smooth one timers and quicker releases and accuracy.

Blade patterns though will not help you roof a puck or shoot better. It may make roofing a puck in tight easier or what have you but it won't help your mechanics, you are absolutely correct.

They just don't.
