All you have to do is lay the middle part of your blade against the puck..then push down, and in one quick motion pull the puck towards you and up.

Tape really doesn't matter..as I have done it without any on my stick. Inertia will keep it on your blade if you learn how to do the motion quickly.

I barely even put my stick on the puck now and can scoop it up without really trying. Once you learn the motion, it is pretty easy.

I dunno... Ive tryed it that way I just dont like the way it feels... but who knows maybe I am doing it wrong... haha
