one thing about the equipment that made it difficult for me for both the things you are talking about was stick length. when I started playing i used a stick that followed the chin to nose rule of thumb, and had no problem with a wrister, but like you describe no end of trouble on the backhand, slapper. after cutting them down little by little I now us a stick that comes between the collarbone and adams' apple. One of the tricks that I learned from these boards is to look at where the tape wears on your blade, if it's always worn at the heel your stick is probably too long. I'm not a great skater, but I get a lot of comments about how hard my shot is since i got the stick length right.
