Are you using senior end plugs with a tape shim and hot glue? I say senior, because often it's not indicated on the end plug, I've bought the odd intermediate plug by mistake.

If you are using senior plugs with a tape shim and hot glue, I'm surprised they come loose, I often use end plugs because I just like the feel/balance (cut my stick extra short, then add the wood extension), and mine never come loose if installed properly.

Regardless, some companies do make longer sticks, around 63" from the heel to the butt end (as opposed to 60" for standard senior sticks). Warrior make some sticks like this, and I think Sherwood do too. You should be able to find them at any good hockey shop, and they'll quickly stand out because they're simply longer than the other sticks.
