Depends on which is your power and control hand as it determines where you are a righty or lefty stick user. My stick is a lefty (power hand - left, is on the bottom and control hand - right, is placed on the top). Depending on whether u are controlling or tajing a myriad type of shots, your master hand may slip down further or rise higher (usually for controlling and dribbling).
Careful with how high you swing the stick (cos it can cause harm). Also be mindful of the temperature you store your stick. Alternating hot and cold temperature may increase the likelihood of it breaking! Lastly, be careful with the point of contact of where u are applying force - directly on the shaft, it may break when it passes a threshold. Likewise for applying flex, once it passes a threshold, likelihood of the stick snapping is higher
The weight of the stick. Relatively heavier compared to sticks such as zone air concept sticks. Colour combination as well of the stick aint as attractive to me but this is more of personal preference, hence, subjective. Overall, still a superb stick to use! EXEL FTW
Pretty biased with my brands to be very honest, hence using Exel is a go to for me. The flex 29mm, is also just right for me as I don't have a high body mass to apply force down on a relatively lower flexed stick. 29mm elicits lesser force for flying shots. Generally, I feel the durability of exel is greater as well! X blade is also such a nice bladeday to use for controlling as the curve isnt too convex!
