You should remember that in a game, you will almost never be bending the stick as you would in store. That's a way for more experienced players to quickly gauge the 'feel' of the flex, harkening all the way back to when wood sticks and their organic inconsistencies made such a check standard procedure. Almost everyone has since copied that check into the composites, but I'm not sure everyone understand what they should be looking for.
Cool, I'll try to snag a 75 if they have it today then. Also spot on with the assessment of not understanding what I am looking for.
