I think you're on the right track with the 2 piece setup. As long as you don't know what curve you like, you should experiment with some cheap blades until you find the pattern which feels the most natural to you. Shooting is different with different curves so you will need to adjust your technique with each. Picking the right curve for you and then practicing is the way to go.
For 130$ you can get an Easton ST shaft (~$100), which is a tank and a great shaft, and some blades to try (with Bauer's P92 pattern you can roof anything). If a shaft is too short for you, you can always put in a plug and cut it to the right length (this will also decrease flex).
On the flex: a softer flex will def help a beginner to learn the right mechanics and load the stick, you will be able to use the flex (as it should be). You can still step up later.
