I'm 5'7 200 pounds and use intermediates. Nothing wrong with that. If you like to really load the stick up.

Dee, technique is big. I mean NHL'ers could probably catch passes with their sticks upside down. But when you're learning, just like in golf, you don't want to make it harder on yourself than you need to. Cheap sticks have terrible feel and the puck bounces off them easier. Expensive composites and wood sticks catch passes really easily. But the two piece with a wood blade is a nice compromise.

I don't think you ever answered, is the puck slipping underneath the toe or heel of the stick, or is it bouncing off your stick, or you can't reach them, or can't control them?
