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.
I agree with this. During a game, your bottom hand constantly changes places on the stick (at least mine does). I used to have an Easton s19 (low kick) and it was great for wrist and snap shots. But now I use a totalone (mid kick) and its great for slap shots, and I feel like it's just as good, if not better, than the s19 on quick wrist shots
