That's actually common, a lot of people using sticks too stiff don't use the flex much and don't notice a difference. Sometimes it feels "wrong" when they drop to a more natural flex, but quite often they find overall improvement once they adapt. Not always.


Goon, that actually makes more sense now that you've clarified. I think people were interpreting your statement to mean that you should use as whippy a stick as you can find, whereas you are saying if you are stuck between flexes, use the whippy stick.


Guidelines, like rules, were made to be broken and have exceptions. So I'd never argue with someone who's having great success with a stiff stick. Like Cammalleri...he's 5'9 and went from an 80 to 85 flex stick this year. Per my guidelines, he should be using 75 flex, but obviously he's got elite technique and is extremely strong for his size.
