Who cares what your teammies say. Use what works for you. What make/model/flex are you using? I find it easier to change my game than change equipment like that. The last time I played ball hockey I went with a lip length stick on skates. I'm about your height and played D. I wasn't going to out reach anybody so I had to really on position and fleet of footiness to make up the difference of my shorter stick. The beauty of ball hockey is the whippier the better since the ball has zero weight to it. I had shoulder issues for years wielding senior sticks in the 90+ flex range (more than that since I cut them down so much). Sticks that stiff for ball don't make sense especially given my height/weight.
I moved to intermediate flex's and the shoulder issues went away. Even playing ice and taking slappers.
