IMO the best option is to use a shaft + blade combo. That way, you can experiment with different curves, have the ability to replace a blade (or shaft) if it breaks without replacing the entire stick and even have the ability to adjust balance (which is more important than just raw weight) with the use of end plugs. Regarding curves, if you buy a wood or ABS blade and know how to do it, you could create curves yourself.
Curve, and length is completely personal preference, no argument there.
IMO flex isn't as relevant playing ball hockey as in ice because a ball will not offer enough resistance to warrant the stick's loading and releasing. Most of the velocity will come with the right technique coupled with the preferred curve and a stiff blade. With that reasoning, I firmly believe that kickpoint is also irrelevant.
