I mean at 5' tall he's going to have to cut off 6-8" MORE stick than I do, and I chop off 4-5" from an intermediate. That 55 flex becomes about 90 flex in a hurry.
Just a thought but Base hockey offers junior flexes from 50-80 and intermediate from 45-85. Get one of those in a whacked out color scheme maybe?
Miken also makes sticks that have graduated flex and length so another one worth a look.
Yup there is no way a 10 yr old can flex an intermediate, even if he is 5ft. 110 lbs. Also I think it's a waste to get the very top grade, newest model composite. I saw on hockeymonkey an Easton RS for 100$, as compared to 200$ for the newer version!
