Stick flex quandary

shots like a slapshot involve putting your weight behind the shot. which is why a stiffer stick will require more bodyweight behind it to make it flex.
In my opinion, for wristers and snappers, the proper flex is dictated more by shooting technique and strength of shooting muscles, not necessarily bodyweight.
You are a big boy, but sounds like your technique may use some improvement, as you've only played a short time. I would use whatever flex you feel comfortable with right now, but most important, I would practice practice practice. Once your technique is down getting to the right flex will have a greater effect and help take your shot to the next level.
