Most important factor is height, then strength IMO.

To the OP, yes, I would try an intermediate stick, something in the 65-75 flex range. If you keep your stick longer (above chin in skates), closer to 75, if it's shorter, closer to 65.

Personally, I'm 5'8" 180 (should be closer to 165), and I have two sticks, a 67 flex Vapor XXV cut 2" below the chin, and a 75 flex Sickick cut even with my chin.

I don't think much of cheap composite sticks...I would save a bit more money and get a shaft and wood blade. The One95 shaft is pretty cheap.
