I've tried over the years everything from below the chin in bare feet to above the eyebrows in bare feet. The sweet spot for me is at the nose or an inch longer in bare feet. I don't wear the tape much but it's fairly even, a bit more wear at the heel depending on whether I play forward or D.

Anything under the nose and I start topping the puck on shots, flubbing shots, sending passes all over the place, and I basically have to carry the puck in my skates, so my head is down and I get picked easily. Higher than that, and from what I recall the stick control felt a bit sluggish, puck was too far from me so the puck got picked, and I lost some power on the shot because it was too far away from my body...but I'll update when I use the monster stick tonight
