I guess you're right; more heel than technically the bottom of the blade.

Since I'm going to be sticking with playing for the foreseeable future... thinking of upgrading to the Bauer Vapor X4.0 composite and making the Sherwood my backup. I'm 5'10' & 175 lbs and reading through your stick buying musings thinking of going with a 77 flex (or perhaps 87?) with a P92 blade. Think that's good for a real beginner?
