Inability to Slapshot or Lift on Backhand?

Hey everyone!

I am relatively new to hockey, and I've been playing ~1 year.

I've been wondering recently about my stick. While I love it for wrist shots, I seem to be unable to lift a backhand shot or lift a slapshot no matter how hard I try.

While I think there is a high probability this is just because I suck, is there any chance some of the blame can lie on my stick/blade?

I use a Louisville TPS R4 Comp Stick with a Frolov curve... It doesn't seem to be very flexible, but, again, I don't have much experience with this sort of thing. I have occasionally been able to lift a slapshot, but I can't seem to lift a backhand.

So, stick, skill or both?


Also: Does anyone know what "R4" or "R8" or "R10" means on TPS stuff?
