Most people prefer lighter sticks. They're supposed to be more responsive, stronger, provide better puck control and give you a harder shot. At the end of the day it's personal preference and what you feel comfortable with.

I've used one piece sticks from Easton, Reebok, and Mission and at the end of the day I end up going to Canadian Tire for a $25 Sherwood. Strong, heavy piece of lumber that's perfect for hacking guys across the back of the legs in front of the net.

That said, you mentioned its lower end and only has 85 flex which has a fair amount of give in it, so the stick is going to absorb some of the energy from the puck and has second rate materials in its core. Chances are there's nothing wrong. There's an adjustment period to every new stick and if your biggest complaint is the sound, you may have a winning choice in your hands.
