How tall is your stick when you stand it up? Does it come to around your nose in bare feet, or is it taller/shorter?

I've always found Reebok sticks to play stiffer than what they are rated. Ordinarily at your height I'd recommend 65 flex (intermediate) but if you like 75 flex senior sticks, go for the 70 flex senior Z9.
I find that that sentiment seems to be most apparent for the higher end Sickick models (10K, 11K, 9K) and the old O-Sticks (9KO, 8.0.8) ,while their respective pricepoints (6K, 5K etc.) feel true to rating. The AI series feels true to rating as well. The newer 20K line feels true to rating as well for me. I haven't heard enough feedback on that last part yet, but it's safe to say that that seemingly consistent rule of thumb regarding Reebok sticks is rather not.
