I was thinking about this too. I'm about 5'8", the last time I played I was like 190ish. I won't be able to play until December and I'm looking to be about 175lbs when that arrives (Studying abroad, hitting the gym regularly). That said, I have a Sr. One90 85 Flex with 2 inches cut off. This leaves me with the stick about nose level (In skates), and at a 96 flex. This is usually how I like my sticks, as I really beat the **** out of them.
That said, I'm going to look into using a shorter, whippier stick when I get back. When I was younger heavy slap shots and one timers were my thing, nowadays, not so much. I much prefer snap shots and a few writsters thrown in. I don't want a noodle, but I'm willing to experiment. Any ideas? I'd like the stick to be somewhere in the mid-80s flex when the stick cut below my chin. I'm assuming I'd have to go to intermediate? Anyone have experience with intermediates? I'm not a monster with strength, but I've broken wood sticks before and I'm a little weary about picking up such a soft stick.
