I'm 6'2 but I actually like the 75 flex for roller hockey.
I use the RBK 11K. It's a light stick to begin with, and using the high flex version makes it even lighter; it's close to 400 grams.
Since a roller hockey puck is considerably lighter than an ice hockey puck, you don't need as much weight and rigidity behind it when making contact. I like to use a heavy rigid stick during practice and warm up, then switch the the 11K 75 flex when the game starts. The contrast makes the puck feel ridiculously good on my stick.
It's not the greatest for slap shots though, but I'm a forward so I rarely get a chance to crank out a slapper with a full back swing. I do keep a Bauer 85 flex with me in case I need to play defense.
