its probably the best stick for driveway hockey because the blade doesnt wear down but it is awful for ice hockey
Well personally I've seen people tape there sticks for inline hockey< but i think it slows you down. however it keeps your stick from wearing down so it lasts longer
Shave Down Where?
you shave up, but if you would want to trim your hair on the legs then shave down wards.
you always shave down
no - all the rattle is, is a tiny bit of the inside that has flaked of which is moving up and down the stick in movement!
Yes. The stick should reach somewhere between your chin and the tip of your nose when you have your skates on.
Apparently the Victoriaville hockey stick company was bought by Rawlings 1997 and the factory was shut down a few years later.
A slap hit is a hit with one hand low down on the stick, as opposed to a "normal" hit where both hands are at the top of the stick.
Start at the top and work down The edges of the tape will provide friction to stop one's hands slipping down the stick. If you start at the bottom and work up, there will be no resistance to such manual glissando.
they shave because the hair will slow them down
This is a pro technique (I read it in an interview with Jordan Eberle [from the Edmonton Oilers]): Use a puck to smooth down the tape to get rid of any air bubbles.
