Sometimes I wonder about the flex vs kickpoint, and how much stiffness I should have. I think if I feel the stick whipping, it might be too much.

My old X:60 I was probably the most accurate and I had the best scoring with, and that was a 75 flex intermediate that played stiffer than rated. I had a Base rep test the flex (granted it was cut down) but he was surprised, saying it felt like almost as stiff as his stick, which was 100 flex.

If I were to go Nexus, I might even bump up to the 77 flex, although I'd probably hack off the entire top whip portion and negate it since I'd have to cut maybe 8-10 inches? I also don't like the square/concave walls.

Right now, I kind of want to see how this Base blade works out. If I like the lower lie and open face, maybe I'll splurge on a new shaft to go with it. Otherwise I'll probably check out clearance X:60 and Widows and maybe the Sherwood N12.
