A mirror will help you identify and monitor the slice, particularly if you set yourself up with the hand in question holding the stick to point directly at the mirror (will mean angling your body slightly instead of facing the mirror directly).

That being said, in the right hand, a slice usually has to do with a slight rotation in the forearm, either in set up, or in the stroke. I would watch your forearm in relation to how your wrist is breaking (the vertical motion). You may be adding some rotation as you add arm for your quicker double strokes.

All of this is speculation though. A video might make things easier to diagnose.
