Shooting is incredibly complex and takes a great deal of skill and practice. But your average beginner who's 5'9 and 150 pounds will be unable to flex a wood stick cut down to length...guaranteed. Might have an okay slapper but leaving power on the table.

Like I said, it requires a lot of practice and some instruction, so until you're really learning to shoot, the composite has no benefit. Hell, I'd say that over half the guys on my team don't flex their stick and have proper technique and they've been playing for years.
I'm 5'7 180 and I can flex my 19 dollar wooden stick
