Ponder is right. There are pros and cons to all patterns but as far as snappers go it doesn't make much difference what you use but your preference will depend on you own technique.

Point of contact for a snap shot is in very tight to the heel of the stick. All sticks are pretty much the same right at the heel.

I use a fairly long stick by current standards (at my nose in sock feet). When I have time to get off a good snapper my tendency is to draw the puck in with the toe of my stick and then release it off the heel from in tight to my body. This allows me to change my release point by about a foot and half and helps me find a shooting lane in traffic.

Preference for my style is a open heel curve with a larger than average hook. Not sure which Bauer pattern that suits. I use a TPS R8 with 061 Nash.
