I'm 5'9" 185
When i did not know what I was doing I had an X40 87 flex, cut to about 95 or so. When I started to learn more about flex I picked up a 77 flex cut to about 85 and the difference was noticeable. I've also tried a whip flex in the Winnwell line, which I think was around 67 or so and I could not get used to it. I found that when I loaded it up the shots came off great, but it seemed like I really had to focus too much on loading it so I could not get used to it.
As of right now I have 2 sticks; the Total One in an 84 after cut, and an X60 in the same flex. I love both sticks for different reasons, but the TO is starting to grow on me more and more each time I use it. My slappers rocket off the thing (when I hit them right) and when i get a chance to load up a wrister I can really fire it off with some pop.
As many people told me when I started playing, you really need to test things out for yourself and see what is right for you. Jarick's guidelines are a good start though.
