The Vapors are low kick sticks, built to be stiff in your hands, whippy right down by the blade, so I never really feel the flex the same way I do with mid kick Supremes, which flex at your bottom hand. I like mid kicks personally, grew up using wood sticks and they flex more similarly to woodies, just feels right to me, and I feel like I get more power out of them on all shots.
You are probobly right about the stiffness as I have only used the one20 and x20.. I really want to try a high end but I only play pickup once or twice a week and have went thru 4 low end sticks since last winter so I am hesitant about spending $100-200 on one
