Do sticks with higher flex break easier?

It was mentioned earlier that shafts that are a lower flex have thinner walls... That is false.
It depends on how you are breaking the sticks. A stick that flexes beyond it's range of flexing is going to break, stiff or whippy... But a stick that can flex more can generally absorb more impact before breaking.
Really, if you want durability... Changing the model of stick is a much better idea rather than changing flex. Some sticks are made to be more durable... There is a reason the Easton ST and Ultralite shaft(now the ST shaft) have been around for soo long.
