On Monday I had sold a bunch of spare gear and shopped for a new stick as my 60 flex was whipped out but I could barely flex my 75 flex chopped down. I spent a few more bucks and tried out a 75 flex intermediate Bauer X:60, which is stiffer than an intermediate but shorter than a senior. Kept it a bit longer than normal (a bit above the nose). I really feel like for the first time I've got a flex I can use. The intermediates always feel a little soft and while I can load them up a lot, I get some lag in the shot, especially if they aren't very high end sticks and/or get break in too much. And the senior sticks even in whip flex just don't flex much on anything other than slappers. Shots are just flying off this thing. Snappers especially, have great velocity and quick release. My shots are coming off quick and landing heavy without as much flutter. I can actually consistently hit high/low when I'm aiming because I don't have to account for excessive whip. Really a lot of fun to shoot now (well it's always fun to shoot). I can't stress enough just how much difference it makes getting the right flex. The only shame is that Bauer is the only big company to have 75 flex intermediates at retail.
