So, should I buy a cheap 85 flex stick, that'll turn out to be 95-98 after cutting it, to see if a lower flex is ok, or should I buy a top of the notch composite stick (S17, U+, RBK) right away for 350 or so swiss francs?
If I like the cheap 85 flex stick, I'll of course buy a better stick so I don't really know what to do....
They say that you should be able to flex it 1 inch or so without any force, I need to use quite a bit.
Trying playing with it.
