We are ALL different when it comes to hockey. it makes it interesting!
I have used and own about 4 5 lie blades I bought on clearance for cheaps. not sure why I even bothered other than to have a backup stick should I break one.
I dislike the 5 lie for me because I hit the toe first when shooting and you lose power in your shot and it adds wobble to the slapshot even if you know how to shoot one. You really have to concentrate more when shooting to get good ones off so I use these for outdoor ice or shinny sometimes where people frown on slapshots.
They are still good for passing ... I think one could pass okay even with stiff cardboard stapled to a broom handle. I mean it is passing for crying out loud.
That seems to be the issue I have with my slapshoots, the toe hits first and it wobbles a ton. Hopefully this stick will be better.
Still need help on the flex. I'm ordering it in a few hours.
