I have been known to know Russians that use their stick at the collar bone. This will force you to keep that deep knee bend to catch that puck.
But for you, the bottom your your chin with your skates on, is the correct length.
I have mine where you said it should be and like it very much. I experimented with a longer stick and liked the reach it had as I am a defensive forward but disliked how much it took away from shooting the puck.
I went back to where I have always had it which is the length you said here and I get the perfect shooting fulcrum. I can't stick handle for crap anyway besides the normal average stick handling no matter the length to be honest .... you know the defensive forward types with the heavy shot eh?
