Zdeno Chara. His stick is 1.8m long (5'9")
about a 40 flex is maximum for a junior stick ---------------------------------------- The biggest flex a hockey stick can have, and I'm assuming you mean the largest number, is a 115 to 120 (depending on the manufacturer). A 120 flex is fairly difficult to find and most are only available in Europe. For the most part, the highest flex available in the USA is a 110. In case there was any question, the higher the number in the flex rating, the stiffer the stick. Here is a listing of average flex ratings for each size stick: Youth - 35 to 40 flex Junior - 50 flex Intermediate - 60 to 70 flex Senior - 75 to 110
Flex is a measure of how bendable the stick is, the flex has nothing to do with left of right handedness. For high school players the standard flex is 85, with some of the stronger players using 100 flex. You want a flex that is going to allow you to get as much snap as possible when you shoot. The lower the flex, the easier the stick bends.
to make a stick stiffer you could cut the stick down as much as needed or you can move up in flex... just remember that you don't need to have the stiffest stick on the team. Most NHL player uses an 85 flex and usually cut the stick to make it a 90 95 flex stick. Also you can a wood knob at the end. I use an 85 flex and cut the stick about 2 1/2 inches to make it about a 95 flex...
the stiffness of the stick when u flex it
A composite hockey stick is made from a synthetic material such as carbon fiber and is seen as lighter and to have more flex than a wood hockey stick. The flex of the stick is often rated on the stick and the amount of flex is a preference of the player. Flex can be seen as important because it causes a snapping of the stick during a snap or slap shot which causes the puck to release at a higher velocity. however often the more flex a stick may have the easier it may break.
The regular flex is a stiffer flex than the mid flex. A regular flex is comparable to an 85 flex. The mid flex is closer to a 75 flex.

No they dont. Infact they add more flex. When you cut your stick down it changes the kickpoint and makes the stick stiffer. (thats what she said) Anyways take a look at the stick where you cut it down and it will show the flex you gain keeping it long or the flex you use cutting it down. so adding a wood extention does not kill your flex but maybe throw the balance of the stick off.

its allows your stick to bend more when taking a slapshot thus creating a stronger spring motion which shoots it faster then a higher flex stick. better for defensmen is lower flex(not to low or you will brake it.
