Depending on your level of play, a composite shaft and wood blade could be just fine. Make sure to change the tape after every game so the blade doesn't get soggy and soft. If you find the blade going soft or breaking down, switch to a composite blade, which will likely last much longer. Although I know some lower level players who can use a wood blade for a year or more because they never take slap shots.

At your height/weight (6' 140 lbs), you might be between a 75 and 85 flex...if you're stronger and have good mechanics, an 85 might work better, but if you're just learning to shoot properly, a 75 would be easier to learn on. A lot of times it's best to learn to shoot with a whippy stick and as your form improves and you get stronger, move up in flex.
