Is that stick right for me? It's looking a little worse for wear, but it has never broken. My shots aren't the most powerful, either.
Try a less stiff stick. If it's too stiff, it'll be too hard to get it to bend, then you won't get the nice whip from the shaft which results in a harder shot. You should be able to comfortably flex the stick without much effort putting your weight down into the shaft.

As a general rule, take your weight in pounds (I'm 170lbs) and divide by 2. I use an 85 and a 90.

Also, the more you cut off the butt to shorten the stick, the stiffer the stick gets.
