Do the majority of people tend to make contact with the middle of the blade?
I was told when learning to take slapshots that I should hit the puck with the middle of your blade, and I'm sure I read this on an online guide too. It's just what I've been doing and it's been working well for me, but now that I think about it, my shots are always high up much to the annoyance of my forwards. I think hitting it with the heel would result in a lower shot? I'll try this in practice sometime.

I suppose it all depends on the blade type too.
