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.
i dont think it matters. The theory is that if/when you take your shots from the mid/toe you tend to not hit the puck squarely. By focusing on the heel of the blade it forces you to square the blade of the stick up to the puck (horizontal axis). BUT, you can shoot whichever way your comfortable as long as you know whats going on....now u know.
Theres alot of math here guys...just punch the numbers
