Most sticks are too long when new from shop. Do not be afraid too shorten it with a saw!
When on skates the stick shall when uprigt reach a few centimeters above the umbilical. If stick is to long skater gets wrong position on the skates and it is impossible to learn to shoot properly.

A knob of several rounds of insulating tape or similar makes it easier to hold tight the stick.
