Remember too that if you have a 65 flex stick and cut about 6 to 8 inches off of it you just made an 80 to 90 flex stick (approximately). You mentioned having your stick way too long and it is an 85 flex so if you cut some inches off of it you will increase the flex by quite a bit to maybe 95 to 100 or even higher.

Your stick length should be (a general rule) somewhere around your chin to your bottom lip with your skates on. It isn't an exact science.

Lesson learned I guess, don't buy a stick at the flex rating you use, buy one that will be your flex after you cut it. Most sticks now come with markers that tell you what the flex will be if you cut it there.

Good luck with your stuff
