Cool. I cut my Nexus to about my adams apple in skates and played a game last night and it felt MUCH better. My control seemed to be coming back. That said, the stick is stiff as a board (its probably over 100 flex now) so I need to find a senior 75/77 again. I do need to be a bit more conscious about staying lower for shooting, but thats always a good thing anyway.

I have one of these actually (had 2, lost the black one ). I do like them, but its hardly the same feel as a puck. They're not very good for quick, soft hands. I'm thinking about getting a wooden ball as well.

When you guys practice off ice, how do you compensate for the height difference? Or do you actually put your skates with guards on?
