Also firm hands, both top and bottom.
this....i think i can hit a one-timer harder than my clapper...maybe its a mental thing (grew up playing baseball, use to "hitting" a moving object) but if the puck is flat and just inside my back foot i can riffle one hard, now accuracy is a TOTALLY different story...will also say rinkrat22 gave good advice.....had HAS to be far down on the stick, the puck will naturally "flex" the shaft so just dont want to (for lack of a better term) "overload" the shaft or you lose all the flex/help from the shaft....and like others said: PRACTICE, PRACTICE, is really fun to practice it though
