Usually this is how I recommend sticks:

110 flex - 6'4 or taller
100 flex 6'1-6'3
85 flex 5'10-6'
75 flex 5'8-5'9
65 flex 5'7 and under

Rough guideline, but the longer your stick, the more whippy it is, and vice versa. Take two guys that are 200 pounds, one is 5'6" and one is 6'5". If they both use the half the body weight formula, the 6'5" guy needs to add a wood end plug and it will probably feel like it's about 75-80 flex. The 5'6" guy will need to cut about 6" off the stick and it will feel like it's about 125-130 flex!
