It goes against the "heel to toe" style that most people seem to recommend, but this video from Easton shows how to shoot off the toe, and I've gotten a lot better shooting that way. The regular goalie at pickup even commented that my shots were coming in a lot higher and harder.

The "These sticks work like a diving board, the more you put pressure on the toe the more it flexes" was entirely new to me. Gotta try this out on the next practice.
