What length should my ice hockey stick be?
Traditionally the stick held on the toe of the blade should reach to your nose. Defensemen may prefer a longer reach, so a longer stick. A shorter stick will force you lower for more control with quick turns and stickhandling.
Another way to judge the size is to stand on the ice with your skates on and arm straight down your side. The blade should sit flat on the ice.
What are a sticks Lie & Flex and why is it important?
The stick lie is the angle of the handle to the ground with the blade flat on the ice. The higher the number, the steeper the angle. Lower lies are for players who skate lower to the ice with the puck in front of them.
Flex is the amount of force required to flex the shaft 1″. A 71 flex takes less force and is whippier. A 110 flex is stiffer and requires more force to flex.
