thanks for the quick response!

I know there is a lot of emphasis on stick flex/weight shift. is it noticeable to you when you are taking a shot? I get down on the puck push it forward and whip it and sometimes its a beauty and i dont really remember feeling my body shift forward a LOT or the my stick was bending.
