That is why I use a long stick playing defense, it keeps the puck way away from people plus I am 6ft 4inches and the reach is just awesome to have.

I use a stick that fits my height. It goes up to my bottom lip on skates.

I use a 5.5 lie and like that lots, I have always used a 6 lie but they are hard to find and the 5.5 is pretty close not to mention I used a shorter stick then for the 6 lie. I still say some companies vary slightly in their lie ratings. I am not sure why but it is irritating to the buyer.
