Maybe your friend just likes having a stick that is real stiff?
He gets the "recommended" 1-2 inches of loading because he's tall enough to use the stick just barely cut down. He's a center and takes draws and is more of a playmaker so he likes a little stiffer stick, but honestly when I flex his stick it feels comfortable because it's 4-5" taller than mine.

Now what's crazy is a buddy who's 5'6 and uses 100 flex chopped down, Marty St Louis style. That stick doesn't flex or bend at all. He's a complete drive to the net and deke guy but still has a bomb of a slapper.
