OZ, even though the specs put this one as the most stiff of the three at 68, I feel it plays less harsh than the IG. Image always thought the youtek version was by far the flex king of the trio. I would put this in the middle.
I believe the large sweet spot on this stick causes it to feel softer that it is, by this I mean it does not seem stiff at all. Shots are solid and smooth with great feel. Not sure if its all the stick, strings, or both. The stick is the perfect blend with these strings and I felt no arm/elbow pain at all. As I have said before the weight distribution allows this stick to swing easy and fluid. It feels lighter than it is.
