I`m 5'8 and when I put the stick in front of me, it comes in height to my forehead. just wondering what height is reccomended?
like I said, I play defence...so a longer stick helps when I want to poke check.
If you're playing D then you'd want longer stick. But up to your forehead is excessive. I play forward and I like to dangle so I cut my stick to about the middle of my neck, sometimes shorter.
But for D I would say to cut it around your eyes or even chin. But the higher you go, you'll probably lose puckhandling ability.
