Mike is correct: flex CAN'T tell the whole story since it's measured primarily at the throat.

A "flexy" frame can play stiff and boardy based on materials and thickness of the hoop.

A "stiff" frame might be comfortable due to materials and a thinner head/beam.

Placement of lead tape cn also mod a frame's comfort for better or worse.
Only on Talk Tennis can you find people who believe
that 10 feet of lead tape has no effect on a frame...
