As for your stick flexing too much, that's really a personal preference thing, some like a tonne of whip, others like very stiff sticks. If you think it feels to soft for you, it probably is. What's your height/weight, what's the flex rating on your current stick, and how much have you cut it down?
I'm using a 50 flex bauer vapor xxxx that I bought way back in september(extremely durable). I am 110 pounds at 5"6-5"7. I haven't cut it down at all but it comes up to my chin in feet now thanks to a few growth spurts
