butt of the stick on the ground...
and the heel of the stick is what i should be measuring off of? or should i be measuring off of the highest point of the curve against my lip area?
my mechanics are horrible, not because i have bad habits, i just have to practice with repition doing it correctly. the puck comes off my wood stick usually going end over end instead of a tight spiral... ive been picking the high school kids heads for tips in between shifts. im strong enough to have a nice shot... its just not coming along as fast as my skating did
they suggested the composite with a curve to help me a little.... i have no dreams of grandjure.. im very aware of where im at... knowing how much i need to progress... my goal with the stick is to just give me as much help as possible.
i can see where my left elbow is way to flexed holding the long stick..... thank you for pointing this issue out guys
