It is a trade off. Better shot and better defensively with the longer stick. Much better stick handler with the shorter stick. I haven't decided which one makes me a better player.

I'm 6'2" and I cut about 1-2" off my sticks.
Just under my bottom lip in bare feet, same as Brett Hull

Just put a 1.25" plug in a backup stick for S&G and it's about 1/2" below my nose. That's roughly where I played the second half of last winter and after playing with a shorter stick much of the summer I want to compare. And maybe use that longer stick if/when I have to sub on defense.
