You can also look into buying an intermediate composite stick instead. These tend to be 3" shorter than the senior versions and usually come in 70-80 flex. They also tend to have a smaller shaft radius for smaller hands.
It comes down to personal preference. If you buy an 85 flex stick and cut a couple inches off, it might end up closer to 95-100 flex. 70-80 flex might be too whippy for some.
As for the process of cutting it, you can use the same method. My local shop will usually do it for free.
