My passing and shooting on the other hand were horrendous. I had a lot of trouble with passes bouncing off or under my blade and getting power on my shots was very troubling, especially while skating at significant speed. I think the stick I'm using might be too stiff, its a 100 flex and I weigh 160 pounds. I plan on signing up for a learn to play class but do you guys have any tips until then?
Ya definetly too stiff.. You shouldnt be using 100 flex sticks unless your 175 lbs and up and you really know how to shift your weight(im not saying you dont but it takes a hell of alot of practice). I am 15, weight 155 and use a 85 flex stick.
