The obvious one being a slapper but I just feel with the longer stick I can really put more of my weight into it and get more of a flex. Prob helps that I already grip pretty low on my sticks most the time.
Also with the extra length I agree it helps me handle better. If I need I can just one one hand and cup it far out of reach from people and can suck it in pretty tight too.
I agree certainly on the slappers. The only point where the length hurts is pulling in when you're in motion and getting ready to shoot- that takes longer with a longer stick, of course. I've also found the ideal length stick for me is halfway between my chin and mouth on skates. It's just ideal for me. I simply can't use a stick much below my chin, I so prefer it for stick handling.
