If you normally cut 4" off a senior stick, you'd only have to take 2" off a 5030, and it'd still have plenty of flex. Besides, wood and composite flexes aren't that comparable, my senior 5030 is way easier to flex than my senior Easton ST (85 flex).
I don't know a whole lot about the feel of sticks as I played inline when I was little but now that I just got into ice as an adult the intermediate 5030 is the only stick I've used. It doesn't feel very solid against the puck - I might have to investigate intermediate composites at some point. The heel on my 5030 is getting chewed up on the ice and it's only seen a couple games action. The lie probably isn't right for me.
