You sure it wasn't just a z-tac style of sandy coating over the whole heel/blade, that you couldn't see on the blade because of tape?

If they actually just sanded down a small area of the shaft really close to the heel/blade, I've never heard of anyone doing that. The only reason I can think of to sand down the shaft near the blade would be to lower the kick point, though it would also likely really reduce the stick's durability (not as important for pros who can use a new stick every game, though).
