Intermediate stick question

Hi I was looking into buying a 65 or 67 flex stick. Are there any that come really tall and are supposed to be cut down? I'm 6'1" so am looking for something around the same size as a senior stick, but the intermediate ones are usually significantly cheaper. I know these kind of sticks exist because my friend got a new reabok 65 flex intermediate and its taller them my senior 85 flex stick.

Is the bauer one 70 intermediate a tall stick?

There will be no intermediate sticks as tall as senior sticks. Your options are to order or find a Bauer iD stick in the 77 flex, or get an Intermediate and stick a wooden/comp plug in it the end to make it the right height.

If you are actually 6'1, then there's no way in hell you should get an intermediate stick. Even if you're crackhead skinny at your size, e.g. 140-145, you should use a 77 flex.
