OP at your size, (5'9 175) there is NO WAY you should try to play with a JR or INT. The only realistic option is a 75 or 77(?) SR if you need that much flex. Intermediate sticks are made for teenagers and small framed women.
I am 135 pounds and did use an INT (65 flex) for months. I do believe it helped my technique in ways, but that thing is a weak rubbery noodle. After the demands of my friend to "man up," (to a SR stick) I am VERY happy with an 85 flex. I will probably spend extra to get a Warrior 77 next though, which I have never tried but I'm sure will be perfect.
