Can someone tell me if this is a lower lie than the W28 Retail?

So I just picked up two Matt Martin QX T8 80 Flex with a slightly taller blade. Used one and the stick seems off. I’m used to using P28/W28 retail or college sticks. This seems like a lower lie than the typical Lie 5 of course. Or is it? The top stick (Alpha QX) is the Martin Pro. The others (QXT/QRL) are team stock W28s.

I lined the two images up in photoshop and it does look as though the Martin is a hair lower. It's hard to show in one image though.

 

The Martin might be closer to a 5. The P28 isn't really a 5, more like a 5.5 like the E6 it's based on, but history has sailed that ship on us.

Is it crazy to think that’s why it feels odd to me? I just wasn’t getting the same shots or puck handling out of it. Messed with length too.

I could see it making a difference, especially with that pattern as its lie is so square on the heel half of the blade.

I noticed that I was shooting considerably higher at the normal Measure link that I have for this pattern in the past . I measure my sticks out standing against the wall and cut them accordingly. I usually lean overly shots And noticed this was a little tougher to get the same power on it
