Higher flex is for stronger guys. That's why you see the big burly defensemen using 110 flex. I'm in highschool and ever since I got my 100 flex, I never went back. Lower flex sticks will get "whippy" over time - a problem that most people ditch their stick due to.

If you're not getting the puck off the ice, try a Sakic blade (not sure if they make 'em anymore). The Sakic curve is a heel curve and it tends to lift the puck more. If when you use the Sakic blade, the puck flutters in the air, you need a Modano/Forsbeg curve. Those blades have little curve, and will make the puck stay straighter in the air.

Hope that helps,

-Phil
