Stick flex is too high!

I use a 87 flex x60, and Love it. I bought a pro-stock total-one for $150 and thought It was a great deal, but the flex is 112. The T1 is great for wristers, but because the flex is so high I can't get a good slapper off. Any adivce?

BTW: I play high school hockey. I'm 6'1" and 165 Lbs. Not the strongest kid ever, but I'm not weak either.

I personally would sell it and go with the lower flex. I always put into consideration what If I need to get that extra gear when I'm totally bagged. I wanna get as much into the shot when I'm absolutely tired if that means I need to use a lower flex so be it.

I made the same mistake, bought a pro stock x60, seller said it was 100 flex, turned out to be 112. I cut my sticks a few inches too after I did that I can't flex it at all. I use it as my backup now..can't take any good slappers (not that I ever do anyway besides warmups), but it's still a sweet stick for stickhandling.

When I first started playing hockey again after a long layoff I bought a few pro-stock sticks. I soon regretted my purchases as those things are too stiff! For the most part you are wasting your money.

When I took up the game a few years ago my first stick was a x:60 pro stock 112 flex. Definite mistake...I know play with an 87 flex APX and find it to be a good fit for what I need.
