I had been using an Easton SE16 (Sakic 85 Flex) for the past 2 years and really enjoyed it... I've been playing with that pattern for about 12 years now, so i'm used to it. Yesterday, I had the chance to grab a TotalOne (Backstrom 87 flex) for a great price so I did... and I was very impressed. My intention was to just try it out in warm-up and get a feel... but I decided to use it in the game and I'm glad I did. Shots really do jump off the stick... My only hesitation was going to a Lie6 from a 5.5 but I saw only a slight change.

Also, in terms of where to cut your stick... there is no magic code or whatever. Shorter is not better. Longer is not better. Do it all on feel... I like a long stick and stickhandling has never been an issue. It's actually my strong point...
