Stick length is without a doubt personal preference, some guys like long sticks and some guys like short ones, just pointing out that most 5'8" players would use a stick that's a good 4-5" shorter than yours. Unfortunately, an 85 flex stick cut down that much would probably be too stiff for you when it comes to shooting
I'm about 5'8" and this is exactly why I went from a senior stick to an intermediate. After making the switch, the results were immediate.
