There are quite a few pros who do use retail sticks and cut down and a very small percentage use whippier flexes in that range, while many cut their sticks down to what you would see on retail INTs. What I'm saying basically is that depending on what you consider an INT stick, comparing it to pro stock is inaccurate.

Sorry for complicating it lol
I have a feeling the OP meant intermediate flexes. I don't see much reason for an NHL to use a stick with intermediate dimensions. I actually suspect there could even be a rule against it, as it would break more regularly, not only on shots, but on slashes and routine stick checks, making it a hazard and more difficult for officials to determine a slash. I'm sure the OP wanted to know if any pros use a whippier flex than 75, basically, and I'm sure the answer is some do, at least sometimes.
