Have you looked into Nexus? Their flex profile is softer.

Check out Base custom sticks as well, I hear that they are whippier than rated.
Thanks AIR,

I went with a Widow Kremlin - twas on sale ($120) at HM in NJ. I really did want the Nexus, but $200+ on a stick sounds crazy, especially for the beating I typically put them through. I checked out the AI as well, and I've heard great things about their performance, but I simply passed.

I also picked up Step Steel (was going to have Edge holders put on my XXXXs) and tried on the APX2s. So between the Widow and SS, I did pretty well. But I'm a long way off from $1,000 skates.
