Brett Hull - 65-75 flex sticks
Phil Kessel - 75 flex sticks now, previously he used intermediate sticks.
Lecavalier - 85 flex up to about 4 years ago.

For pro stock TPS has/had two flexes lower than what they call a "Whip" and a "Strong Whip" for pros that want something lower than 85 flex... and they arent ridiculously hard to find as you'd probably assume.

"Pro Stock" is a brand name, not actual pro stock with TPS. Afino is the only pro who uses a TPS whip. Of course a whip would be less then 85, what do you think a whip is.

No such thing as "strong whip"
