The rule of thumb is half your weight, so for you that would be an 85 flex, however it's all preference.

An 85 would work well for you. I use coupla 100 flex shafts, but I'm a small guy though, so it's up to you.

If you like wristers that much you could even try an intermediate at like a 70-75 flex. It is personal preference and your bodyweight divided in half is just a guideline. Brett Hull used some extremely whippy sticks for example.

Ideal way is, the felx is half your weight.

I am 140 pounds, and I use a 75 Flex.

It also depends on yourself too.

But yea, in what I know it should be half your weight. So I assume 85 would be the ideal flex for you.

I'm also 140 and I use 75 flx. Works really good for me, but it is about PP more than anything.
