How can I find the flex on my stick.

I have the Warrior Dolomite and I am trying to find out what flex it is. It may be wiped off from playing. Any idea how I can find out the particulars on the shaft and blade?

Thanks.

Bend the stick, how does it feel? That's far more important than the number which can differ in what it actually means between makes / models. If the original number isn't printed on the stick though you have no way of telling short of getting it tested which would be really pointless and expensive.

compare it with your friends' sticks using the same pressure

bring it to your lhs store and they can give you good advice if you have no idea.

These are actually very bad ways to tell the flex. Different sticks have different kickpoints and differently engineered flex profiles. High vs low end will differ too due to materials. A low kick stick feels 'stiffer' than a mid-kick with the same rating as an example. So don't just give some sticks a push to tell.

Take off the endcap and see if there's print on the inside?

If his friend had a Dolo/Kronik that is.

If it's not cut Warrior prints flexes on the inside of the butt end, although sometimes in their weird flex ratings (400-260 flex).

I would actually recommend if you're looking to buy a new stick, take yours to the shop and grab sticks from the rack where yours is cut off and give them a LITTLE flex. Some will break in a bit but it would be close.
