Wouldn't adding and gaining be the same thing?

The stick gets stiffer.

that's incorrect, the stick gets harder to flex.

When cut, the composite loses flex... meaning it becomes stiffer.

lol you guys are crazy

its physics man

if you cut it, it will get stiffer, hence the flex number would increase
