If you're not getting the puck off the ice, try a Sakic blade (not sure if they make 'em anymore). The Sakic curve is a heel curve and it tends to lift the puck more. If when you use the Sakic blade, the puck flutters in the air, you need a Modano/Forsbeg curve. Those blades have little curve, and will make the puck stay straighter in the air.

Hope that helps,

Not always the case. A lot of your NHL shooters are using 85-90 flex sticks.

When looking at new sticks. Make sure the face of your blade is open. That will help the puck rise.

On the right hand side of this page there is a link to their blade tool. Check it out. Plenty of helpful info there.
