Hockey newb here with very little skill training. My issue is that I seem to have trouble comfortably getting/keeping my full blade on the ice. I have two sticks. BAUER VAPER 7.0 with Kane blade and 6lie. Also Easton Mako 2 with Iginla blade a 5.5 lie. Both sticks are cut to my chin with skates on.
When I am in skate stance, skating forward with my hands comfortably in front of me the heel is on the ice with only a few inches of the blade. In order to put the majority of the blade I would need to raise my arms and hands up considerably. Assuming we are supposed to have as much of the blade on ice is it the lie, length of stick, my stance or ???
