I agree completely. I had a fiasco around 6 years ago where I switched blades from a 5 lie to what the store clerk thought was a 5 lie, but was really a 5.5 - back then the lies weren't printed very often on the shaft so it was kind of a guessing game if you ran into a store clerk who didn't know the ins/outs of stick selection.

I had the most trouble with stickhandling, it was ridiculously frustrating when puck inexplicably slid off the heel of the blade compared to the previous stick. Count that with the occasional flubbed passes and I was furious for the entire year until I found an identical matching blade again.
