Really for me the only downside is that shots and passes can go high if you don't follow through properly, so you have to be mindful. I've been forcing myself to use it as much as possible to get in good habits. And I suppose toe drags aren't as good, but I'm more of a shoulder/head fake kind of guy.
That's a good point and part of the reason I like it so much. It will force you to get into proper habits, most specifically a good, complete follow through. You have to pull/turn the bottom hand all the way over to keep the puck down and that generates more power and accuracy.
