I've had 85/87 flex sticks forever, though I feel like my wrist/snap shots are pretty weak. My slapper is good, but I've been wondering if I should try a 75 flex stick this time around to help with my wrister/snapper.
Can't comment on the specific sticks, but I think you would find your wrist/snap shots improve with the 75 flex. Your slappers might drop a bit (sounds like you're pretty strong), but think about which shot is more important to you.

Seems like Warriors are pretty long. That said, nothing wrong with a wood plug, might even help the balance/feel a bit.

Sounds good! Mine should be here on Wednesday. Can't wait! Of course winter league ends this weekend, but spring league starts up in a few weeks I think.

There's a lot of clearance sticks in that $130-180 range from last year. There's not a ton of sticks that are between 100 and 115 flex, but BASE offers a couple in that range. Maybe a Natural in 105?
