I LOVE MY STICK. I do a lot of s--- with it. Not to the blade, but I paint the bottom, because the color of it down low distracts my eyes when I play. I used to have a Bauer stick before, and it was black, but this one has the bright color. It’s a business, so they want it to look good on TV, probably. But for the players, you don’t really want to see it. Maybe some guys like it. But you keep looking down at it, because the color of the stick is so different. It’s orange, blue…so I’ve painted the lower part of it black. A lot of guys do that.
I like doing my knob, too. The grip. I shape it and shave it to make it rounder. I spend a lot of time with my sticks. Too much. I’ve got a pretty whippy flex, but I’m not a really big fan of that. It doesn’t really matter, because I’m not a shooter.
My stick length is probably a bit shorter than average because I’m not too tall. It fits me good. Sticks nowadays are so good. The people who make them pretty much know what you need.
