Hmmm... I started out with a couple of BASE inter 65 flex sticks, one of them bought 2 years ago and the other one 1 year ago. This year I decided to try their 55 flex. What's odd is that the flex difference between the older 65's and the new 55's is barely noticeable. And I don't think my 65 flex sticks lost that much stiffness. The 55 flex sticks aren't as whippy as I hoped/expected, and feel similar to 60 and 65 flex sticks of other brands, but they're doing the job and may soften a bit in time. So it's a little weird and makes me wonder if they updated their flex ratings this year. Or maybe it's just a quirk in their manufacturing of those two inter flexes.

BTW, since the Natural is a mid kickpoint, it might feel a bit whippier than a Savoy Special of the same flex rating.
