Well, for me the lower lie actually helped because I get pretty slow. It just felt natural of my style.

Lie should have no effect on your speed.

It might, depending how you skate and assuming you're carrying the puck. A proper lie and length for the correct stride could make you faster/more comfortable with the puck.

i have no idea to be honest. lately i've been strugling to find sticks locally with a lie as low as i'm used to and a pattern i like, so i've been trying a few with a .5 increase. and honestly...it's really weird and uncomfortable.

Make the stick a little longer, carry the puck further away from the body, bend the knees, etc.
