Looking to improve your Stick Skill? Then this is the guide for you!

Hey Madden Gamer,

Do you know what stick skills are? Stick skills are the ability to make all of the plays and control all aspects of the game manually instead of relying on the computer to do or make them for you. Stick skills are a HUGE part of Madden and often determine who wins or loses the game. Duke has had some of the best stick skills in the world for several years now and is here to share his secrets, down to the very last detail, on how to make your stick skills elite! Year in and year out, NOBODY makes more user picks or user catches than Duke. Anyone who plays Duke leaves in awe of his user skills. After several months of work, Duke is finally ready to release his top secret methods to his stick skill to the public! Best of all this guide is only $19.99!

What does this guide include?

  • Detailed User Catch Breakdown (Face Throws, Rocket Catch, Pass Leads, Player/ Field Positioning,etc)
  • Become A “Playmaker” (Learn how to make big plays on the fly)
  • Put the “Special” in Special Teams (Make long field goals, kick coverage, and kick returns)
  • Preventing Broken Tackles
  • Taking Advantage of the “Defensive Assist”
  • “Baiting” the QB
  • Triggering Deadly User Pick Animations
  • Swat vs. User Pick
  • And More!

These are PROVEN methods that work year in and year out! This guide will be helpful for all versions of Madden past, present, and future!

To make sure the material covered in this guide will be helpful forever, I will update this guide with any new stick skill tactics, and tweak any specific tactics if they change year to year.

Plus, I will personally answer any questions you may have. You can post questions directly to each video included in this guide!

How Much Can I Improve My Stick Skill?

Anyone can improve tremendously improve their stick skill. When I (Duke) started playing Madden about 10 years ago, I could not user catch my way out of a paper bag or make ANY 1v1 plays defensively. It was EXTREMELY frustrating to consistently lose these 1v1 battles, whether I was missing catches or tackles, because  it was putting me at a disadvantage  to players with sub par strategy. With effort and dedication I was able to work and MAKE my stick skills better than 99.9 percent of the people who play Madden. I can honestly say there are only a handful of people who possess the stick skill that I do. Back in these days, NOBODY was willing to help another player improve their stick skills so I had to rely on trial and error to get better. You are in luck because I am giving you my proven secrets to improve your stick skill! Not only do I share my methods, but I also tell you how to practice and continue improving your stick skills once you learn the techniques.

This guide contains full HD video breakdowns with voice over. Many people claim to have HD quality, but you have not seen true HD until you see our new videos.. PERIOD! This has changed the way guides are done! Fast forward, pause, rewind, or go full screen as our videos are like a true HD DVD experience. Now you can watch exactly what we are doing, while we explain it it you at the same time! Think of it as a one on one class session. You also get a text breakdown for each play if you want to quickly pick up the setup!

Don’t just take our word for it, check out some customer reviews below!


I consider myself a pretty good Madden player, but I have always had so much difficulty learning how to user catch. No matter what video or tutorial I watched, I just could not figure it out. I now realize that I was missing many keys to the user catch. This product has improved my user catch abilities greatly in just a few nights. I have not even gotten a chance to look over the other sections yet, but I can honestly say this guide is worth the money for the user catch section alone. Great job Duke!


I am a new player as I just started playing Madden this year. I really had no idea how much stick skill plays a part in becoming a better player. The breakdowns in this guide are brilliant and very easy to follow even for a newbie like me. Some of this stuff that I have previously overlooked because it seemed so simple,  yet it really makes a huge difference. My defense is now improving a ton because I feel comfortable making plays in the open field.

Other people will charge you between 25-35 bucks for this amount of material. We are practically giving it away at only $19.99!

    Are these strategies only for madden or will they improve my stick skills with NCAA 12 as well?

    • Duke 22. Jul, 2011 at 12:32 am #

      Yes this guide will also help in the NCAA series. Some of the stuff is slightly different (ex: NCAA kickers cannot make kicks as far as Madden kickers), however you will find the majority of it transfers.

        Cool, thanks.

    Has anyone bought this? Is it worth buying? Does it work with MAC computers?

    • Duke 07. Sep, 2011 at 2:07 pm #

      Yes it works with MAC computers and if you take a look at some of the customer comments you can see it is worth buying.

    Do all the stick skills covered apply to PS3 platform as well as Xbox… or do some only apply to the Xbox system, like rocket catching?

    • Duke 08. Sep, 2011 at 7:58 pm #

      The stick skills guide applies to both PS3 and XBOX 360.

    Okay, there was no link to your stick skills. I e-mailed to billing@sportsgamerz.com with no response back. No instructions to login to my account. Only after reading comments here did I see log on to your account. The last e-book I ordered from your site was back in March 2011. This would have been my first Madden 12 eBook. Stick Skills is not in that account.

    • Duke 12. Feb, 2012 at 12:12 am #

      For future reference, support is here:


      The issue was that you did not click the activation link in your email. I looked up your account and did it for you so you should now see it once you login.


      • JohnH 12. Feb, 2012 at 5:16 pm #

        Okay, thanks for manually setting this up, but I never received the second e-mail from you guys in the first place. I only got a thank-you e-mail with receipt included. I’ve order 3 other products from you guys with no problems. Just letting you know that nothing was in a spam folder, but why would it be after purchasing 4 items and receiving an e-mail notice? Thanks again, great guide. FYI

    Hey duke i was looking at a lot of madden commentaries and saw How good they are but since Ive been playing battlefield and call of duty competitively since I.stopped playing in 09 my stick skill is so horrible that I have trouble not only doing user catches and utilizing most of the things pros use manually to the point that I can’t even set up plays correctly to set up nanos or even lab because my reflexes are to sluggish I know for a fact that I have the worst stick skill in madden and if I want to play madden at a highlevel just to even enjoy the game can This guide help anyone who is dirt get on the right path to start building a foundatibon to user catching and building basic reflexes to start lagging because I’m a total newb at madden now

    im picking up this guide officialy tommorow or later today. does this guide show how to shoot gaps and stop the run also? i see alot of top players do that and i thought you would happen to know and what are your opinions as far as m13 goes will stick skill be as important since there taking away face throws and making user catching easy for everyone or will it be the little things that seperate the men from the boys?

    • Duke 24. May, 2012 at 4:13 pm #

      Yes stick skill will always be important

  14. Tony 11. Jul, 2012 at 3:48 pm #

    I keep reading that. But doesn’t work on iPhone. Even with skyfire it’s still sketchy. Only reason I bought any guides was the all device comments in the email.
