You have been mixing up rating with actual amount of flex. Low # = more flex.
That's all. I bet if you roll out with an 85 rated stick you'd feel like you're getting more power on your shot (especially wristers). Dunno about you but I almost never get a slapshot chance during games any more. Wrist and snappers at most.
FYI - Brett Hull used a 67 flex rating and he was 200lbs. He got all that power from a super whippy stick.
I think I had the concept down even if I'm using the terminology wrong.
So let me ask it like this.
I thought the point of the whip was to provide added velocity? If that is not the point, then what is the point of the whip?
And I play the point, so I get a fair amount of slap shot ops.
