Stick Length Question

Ok, well I'm a really tall guy(6' 7") so obviously I need a longer stick. So I have two questions. One, what is the longest stick allowed by regulations? Two, can anybody offer a little help or advice as to where to find a stick of this length? Thanks in advance.

I think most OPS are all the same legnth. but if those dont fit your needs a wooden extension would fit but might mess with the flex.

ASk the local shops near you if they have prostocks that usually come in unusual lengths and flexes. If that doesn't get you anywhere, you can move on to calling some of the online retailers over the phone.

yeah, i'm 6'4" in shoes, and use an extension...just gives your shaft a little more flex. but over time it gets a little loose...just annoying when you have to take it out and put a strip of tape down one side. (especially when your dog likes chewing rolls of stick tape) lol

what you could do is maybe get a senior stick in stiffer flex and put on an extension which will bring down the flex some but i dont know how much it will.
