Does your stick meet the Rule of Flex?
It's pretty simple... All Hockey Players should be using a stick with a Flex Rating that equals less than 50% of your their body weight.
Let's use logic... NHL Players use sticks that are 85-110 flex. Most NHL Players are 190-220 lbs. That makes sense.
So why would kids aged 5-12 weighing 40-100 lbs use a Junior Stick (50 Flex) and then cut 4-8 Inches off making it more like a 60-70-80 flex stick? That doesn't make sense at all.
