Full time cage user last 2 years for both roller and ice. Luckily ive never had dental work from my half visor days but i have been clipped with errant sticks and gotten cuts to my lips and gums. I have a buddy who got hit in the mouth, with a mouthguard, ended up costing $16k for repairs and it wasnt covered by his dental plan. I'm not about to make pro anytime soon, gladly give up a tiny little bit of viability for peace of mind.

Always wore a visor till last year during my ASHL game. A high stick went under my visor and clipped me. Had to go Burnaby Hospital right away and got 5 stitches. Almost lost my eye, don't care if I lose sight of the puck every so often, rather have my sight outside of the game.

Tried full shield today and would recommend it for anyone thinking of trying it.

How long of a stick does everyone use with skates on? Noticing that with a long stick once the pucks in your feet you're kinda screwed

a lot of people use too long of a stick... unless you are a D, imo, your stick shouldn't be taller than up to your chin on skates. Yes it is personal preference, but for most players, shorter = better stickhandling. I said most players, because I know a lot of you will argue that datsyuk uses a pretty long stick

I'd be down for that.
No chance of me organizing it until after the season in April. Once that rolls around I usually organize a by-monthly game for my buddies. Ice is so cheap after April. Same goes for the inline floor.

So true, G2!
My slapshot was a flailing mess and an embarassment to whoever saw it. My son did a shooting clinic, and I brought my stick out one night. The instructor watched me take 3 shots, then grabbed a short "Base" stick out of his pile. Hooked me up with a different blade so my lie was proper, and my shot went from fart to rocket. I can hit corners now at a high rate of speed. Not bad for a goalie, hehehe.

The stick was the factor that was holding me back, and by spending only a few minutes with someone who knows my shot is actually dangerous now after cutting down my current sticks. It's amazing what good coaching can do, although when I snap my Rbk, I'm going with a custom Base.

along with improper height, a lot of people use too stiff of a stick too, esp asians who are shorter than your average white dude. They get an 87 flex, chop it down 3-4 inches, and now you stick as stiff as chara's. Rule of thumb people, again unless you are a D man, you should be using a flex roughly half your weight (already cut). People who use to stiff of a stick generally think it works for them but they are overpowering their wrist and snap shots which cause big time delay, and time winding up. wrist shots and snappers should be effortless and the stick should be doing most of the work. with slappers, that is a diff story, but even then, if your stick is too stiff, you try to pound the shit out of the puck rather than being conscious about good form and following through... ok that's my rant of the day. lol

go to "howtohockey" youtube page. It is one of the better instructional channels out there for learning different hockey shots/skills. Start off by getting a proper flex stick .

But then I can't use cheap prostock stickz from canucks salez lol

I always thought too stiff a stick it doesn't load properly, and too flexy is when you get the delay in release. I've settled on 70-75 flex at 180lbs mainly bc I'm a lazy shooter these days

yes do it. i've done it for over a year now, and dennis and james are pretty good instructors. they've played hockey all their lives and make everything look so easy. honestly for the amount they charge (i think it comes out to $8 per session) it's pretty good. also they will push you if they know you can do it

+1 Good points! Also want to add that even passing/receiving with a proper flex stick makes a big difference.
