Where does everybody like their pockets on their sticks?

I have mine right at the bottom cause all the defenders have find it harder to check the ball out of my stick.............and my sticks not even illegal[/u][/b]

when playing attack i like a low pocket too - with the modern narrow heads, i find it has much ball retention particularly when cradling one handed.
If i'm playing middie, i prefer the pocket to be higher, nearer the middle, so i can get a quick release to feed off a dodge.
It's not the size of the dog in the fight...

I used to use a low pocek, but a higher one gives so much more power and allows you to flick your wrists to push the ball even faster too. Not everyone though can play with high pockets,
