I use a very short stick (only up to my middle chest) because it's SO much easier to handle the puck. But as I get older, I realize I miss the extra 5 or 6 inches defensively. So I 'm starting to lengthen the stick little by little.

I've always used as big a curve as I can find, because it's easier to stickhandle for me with the big hook. Right now the best I can find (that isn't a local player) is the Coffey curve from Sher-Wood. Backhanders aren't really much trouble, but the extra zip from the large curve is nice. Plus, you can turn the blade over onto the puck to protect it better.
