Sticks are a whole lot of personal preference. The general rule for a starting point is half your weight but if you're shorter/taller that value can be skewed. Your weight says you should try a 85 flex but you might not have the leverage or strength get the most out of it.

Intermediates, as everyone has said, will be a thinner shaft and lower flex. I'd suggest getting a cheapo intermediate in a 65 or 70 flex just to see if you like the whip. You might also look at a 75 flex senior stick. I use Reebok 8K sticks in a 75 flex cut down to about 80 flex and love it. I'm 5'10" and 155lbs and I can get some strong flex out of it.
