Part of it depends on the stick. You'll do better with a higher kickpoint stick if you like that method.

I do the redirect onetimer type shot by shooting it like that in the photo, hands up high on the shaft. I get some megazip on it. I currently use a low-mid kickpoint shaft. I like it for slapshot feel more than anything.

I also have my hands up high for a quick snap shot with a very strong "bury it" followthrough for roofing it from the slot.

Oyyyyy .... so many things to consider when buying sticks these days. I am looking into buying a Harrow tapered shaft and blade system. I handled a couple in my friend's store here .... liked them and he said he would guarantee that I always get the blades for it I want if I chose to buy a couple. I want a low-mid kickpoint on that also.

They have a 2 month warranty too like Bauer does.

I have the problem of getting my hands too far apart shooting and going way over the net. Having the hands closer helps a lot on wrist shots. I don't do the snap shot one timers (unless it's the only option), I prefer the full howitzer type

Good point, but I was actually using it as an example of why the skating is so important. If you can't skate there's no way you're doing anything with a high leg kick like that...look at his foot on the ice! You can see the top of every lace perfect...now that's good ankle strength and balance and as a result, a new shooting form

Quicker is better, if you receive a pass and take the time to wind up you have to beat the goalie with your shot power because you are giving him time to set up. A quick little one time tap into an empty net is one of my favorite shots.
