These are actually very bad ways to tell the flex. Different sticks have different kickpoints and differently engineered flex profiles. High vs low end will differ too due to materials. A low kick stick feels 'stiffer' than a mid-kick with the same rating as an example. So don't just give some sticks a push to tell.

Take off the endcap and see if there's print on the inside?
