How should I size this stick up? I want to able to have good puck control yet be able to take nice wrist/snap shots. I'm not much of a slapper
Should I just cut it like stick9 said, just below the nose?
Also, is waxing your blade a good thing? Or is it just personal preference?
My comment on sizing was a general term or a guide. Everyone does something different. Some guys like real long sticks so then can poke check pucks away, other like real short ones so they can handle the puck better in tight.
You could put your skates on and move your top hand around until you find a spot where the blade is lieing flat on the floor. If that feels comfortable mark it there and cut it that point....leave a little extra if you plan on taping some kind of knob at the end.
You might have to fool around with it a bit to get a length you are comfortable with.
If you don't know what waxing your blade does, you probably won't miss it.
