+1 to sell it, and get a stick with the proper flex for you. As Jarick stated, 77 flex is as high as you should go.

Also, if you're 5'9" - 5'10", and using an uncut senior, you're using a ridiculously long stick for your height. I'm 6' tall, and cut a good 2" or so off senior Bauer sticks. As a general rule of thumb the butt end of your stick should come up to somewhere between your collar bone and chin when you're on skates (with the stick held vertically in front of you), when you get your new stick I'd look to cut it down around 3" or more if it's a senior Bauer.

Edit: I thought I was chopping off a bit more than 2", but just measured my stick and I apparently cut off more like 3.5"
