Switching to an intermediate stick seems like the smart thing to do. I wouldn't have to cut it down and the integrity of the stick wouldn't be changed.

I know the shaft is skinner than a senior sized stick which is a part of my worry. I'm about 145lbs so I don't think a 67-70 flex would be that far off of a weight/flex ratio? Am I wrong?

Anyone else make the switch? Any warnings or advice?
All other things being equal (they rarely are...but), if two sticks have the same stiffness the skinnier one is stronger.
