I know that if I use too stiff a stick I have trouble lifting the puck. When you flex the stick, it bends and then as you release it whips forward and up (at an arc). So that could be a problem.
You might want to try an 85 flex stick. A teammate is probably 6'5 and 175-ish and uses a 100 flex with a full length plug. Before that he had an 85 flex with a plug and loved it. The 100 has a bit more power for him, but he also has an amazing shot. When you're developing your shot and technique it can help to get a whippier flex.
Also, if you have a pretty good shot right now other than it staying low, a more open face can help...but it's a bit harder to keep the puck low and give/receive passes.
