Normally on one-peice sticks, the higher the number of the flex the harder it is to bend a stick so the 140 would be a stiffer stick, a stick with a 140 or 120 flex would be extremly hard to bend and is not recamended for anyone who takes many slap shots.

Graphite sticks are much lighter and they can flex much more.

The main difference between the Nike Free Run and Flex shoes is that the Flex range has shallower flex grooves and a lower heel. There is little difference in the heel to toe drop.

A hockey stick's flex is shown on the shaft of the stick, usually at the top. A stick with more flex has a lower number, ranging from 80 (most flex) to 110 (least flex). The most flexible stick will have an 80 Flex.

The flex rating (or stiffness rating) of a stick dictates how easy or hard it is to bend the stick. The higher the number, the stiffer the stick. The lower the number, the more bendable the stick. Senior sticks usually rate between 75 and 110, intermediate stick between 60 and 70, junior sticks between 50 and 52, and youth sticks between 35 and 45.

The difference between regular flex and soft flex graphite irons are the suitability to the needs of the golfer. Stronger golfers swing faster thus needing the regular flex. Ladies and seniors, on the other hand, need soft flex graphite irons.

A Uniflex is a flex between regular and stiff, a bit more on the stiff side.

The flex in a hockey stick refers to how much whip the stick has. If you look up images of a hockey stick flexing, you can see it bend and the flex number indicates how much it will bend on a shot.

The difference between a structure that is rigid and one that is flexible is that the rigid structure will not bend or flex when force is applied. A structure that is rigid cannot flex.

There is actually very little difference between senior and ladies flex shafts. You will find that the senior flex shaft is slightly heavier. They are both aimed at golfers with slower swing speeds, to help them get the ball the air easier.

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.

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

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...

exactly flash is a tool that is used to create applications it is subset of flex,the flex is collection of all the tools and techniques that is provided by adobe .

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.

senior stick has a stiffer flex. senior flex is 75 - 115+. intermediate flex i think is like 77 down to 55. if your like 150+ and is like 5'5+ use a senior.

User Avatar

The stiffness of a hockey stick is called flex. Flex ranges from 1-100. The higher the number the stiffer it is.

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

A flex offense is being more flexible.A motion offense is doing whatever the heck you can.

User Avatar

Yes. Typically a flex greater than 100 means a very rigid stick.

Of course the blade AND shaft flex on all sticks. But the amount of flex is dictated predominately by the structure, materials and the length of the overall stick. If the heal (or the rear part of the blade) is damaged, you will get movement separate from the shaft. This is a real problem. But overall, a modern hockey stick, both shaft and blade, will work as a solid flexing piece if it is fitted properly. For your question, the number 95 reference is the makers reference to the "flex" of the shaft and not the blade. This 95 is a "stiffer" stick as opposed to a 85. The lower number equals more flex. However, the overall "flex" will be reduced if any length is cut off (think a longer stick bends easier than a short). hope this helps.

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.
