Finding the Right Composite Hockey Stick Flex for You

Choosing the correct flex for your composite hockey stick is crucial for maximizing performance. The flex rating indicates the stick’s bending capability; a lower number means a stiffer stick, while a higher number is more flexible. Generally, players weighing more should opt for a stiffer flex, whereas lighter players might prefer more flex. Your playing position and shooting style also play a part. Forwards often favor a more flexible stick for quicker wrist shots, while defensemen may lean towards stiffer options for powerful slap shots.
