back in high school (6'0, 170lb) I played with an 80 flex and went through a period where I thought I would snap my stick in two if I leaned into it too much. turns out it was just a technique issue. Im two inches taller and 30lb heavier now, and use a 75 flex with zero problems.
It's not just a technique issue. I've snapped an 87 flex stick in two last week because I was trying to flex it as much as possible on a slapshot, and I'm much lighter than you. I can't use anything sub 75 flex.
