Needless to say, it felt a bit weird. I can see why people like using it though. Cupping the puck, toe drags are a lot easier. Saucer passes are a lot easier to do. Can get up a high shot really quick.

I haven't fully adapted to doing backhanders with this twig yet, but it definitely feels a lot harder to roof a backhander with this than my Cammy stick.
I've been working on my backhand with the Sakic a bit and it's no tea party going up. I find I had to get low, wind up a tiny bit and really get a good shovel motion down and up.
