Flex question

Which stick will have the lowest flex rating?
87 flex tapered/standard One95 shaft
95 flex TPS R8 standard shaft + 3.5" ext

Thanks

the one 95 will probably still have a lower flex and its tapered so its a lower kick point, im not a fan of TPS stuff, but the one95 two piece is not tapered

The R8 you can get tapered or standard.

You can get both tapered or standard. Purehockey.com has one95 tapered shafts. The tapered R8 is 4" longer than the standard so that is off my list.

TPS Regular Flex is typically stiffer than most other 85 or "regular" flexes. The One95 is regarded to be a whippier stick than average.

I actually just went with the 77 flex standard One95 shaft with a P92 One95 blade.

the rps/sherwood rep showe us the new stuff

the r10 is no longer being made nor is the r4

they say they match their sher wood $120 composite stick against any other top end sticks like the x60 or the s19

for $120 its a fantastic stick, its full composite and very light but its not a true one piece and it doesnt have the feel of an x60 or s19 from just handling it
