I disagree with looking at it from that point of view. Low kick points allows for a far quicker loading time for those quick snap and wrist shots where as a higher kick point (mid kick is what I'm thinking) allows for the stick to really build up and then release for those big clappers. Not to mention your hand positions change all the time during the game and while you may like to hold it a certain way you don't always get that grip when the puck happens to come to your stick in the slot.

I currently have a N12 (low kick) and an AI9 (mid kick). I use the N12 because I had it first and I love it but I have noticed a lack on power on my slap shots while my wrist shot feels great.
