Rather start with too long and cut it down than start with too short and have to get a whole new stick.
Good idea, if you do cut it down too short you can also just add a butt end plug too rather than buying a new stick. I use the nose on bare feet but the best indicator for me that my stick is too long or I need to cut it down more is if the puck flutters when I take a wrist shot.
