I'm pretty much the same build as you except maybe 30 pounds heavier. If it is true that your game relies on wristers and stick handling, are games are eerily similar.

I like to use a wooden stick, I find it gives me a harder shot, but a slower release. Stick handling is about the same as with a composite stick, depending on the wooden stick. It's all about finding the right stick. For example, I like to use a stick with a mid-heel curve as opposed to one with a large toe curve, it gives me a more accurate wrist shot.

This is the stick I used last year:



However, like I said it's about finding the stick that best fits you. I suggest going down to Sportchek or whatever and using their collection to see what fits. Test out the flex, weight and all other necessities.

Also ask if it is O.K. to try out teammates sticks, that's how I found out about that beaut ^^
