A 75 flex would indeed be perfect.
be aware (you probably know this already though) that cutting length off of a stick raises the flex number. My sticks say for every 2 inches it adds 10 (approximately) to the flex number. I just bought a 100 Flex Harrow shaft and cut a little over one inch off of it making it according to the line on it a 105 Flex. That same inch on my Bauer shafts say it would now be a 110 flex. So it isn't an exact science and does differ among different companies and materials used for sticks.
If you buy a 65 flex and cut 4 inches off of it you have an 85 flex (approximately)instead of the 65 you bought.
The problem is when I get a 75 flex senior stick I cut 4-5 inches off. So it makes it way too stiff. But the intermediate 65 flex is too soft I think.
