Well, you can still add a plug to an intermediate... I agree that it's NOT going to work for most people but I'm just saying not to rule it out. That is a careful distinction you want to make when offering advice.

The problem with cutting and adding on to sticks, wood plugs have a different flex rating than the composite will. Also with varying kickpoints/flex zones, it's tough to gauge how much cutting will effect flex. Remember, the flex changes because of leverage, not because it adjusts the physical properties of the stick... BUT, about 5 flex per inch is a rather good rough estimation. Just don't count on it being exact. A TPS R10 that has a soft flex zone at the top is going to stiffen more than a NBH one95 that has a stiff flex zone at the top.
