Minor quibble...Kessel did use an intermediate, I believe he's up to a senior whip now
Otherwise agree with Ponder on this one.
My personal opinion is flex has almost nothing to do with
but is almost completely dependent on
Starting points IMO for flexes are:
5'6 ~ intermediate (65)
5'9 ~ whip (75)
6'0 ~ regular (85)
6'3 ~ stiff (100)
It goes up or down a little bit based on whether you like a whippy or stiffer stick, but for the most part that's going to be optimal. And yes, I know guys you are 5'6 and use 100 flex and guys who are 6'5 and use 85 flex, but it's a good starting point.
