Never compair flex ratings between companies. There is no standard for what the numbers mean and there never can be.

You would think that board companies would start using universal mechanical properties to indicate the stiffness of each board so that they can be easily compared to boards from other companies. This would be much more effective than grabbing the board at one end and holding it vertically then pressing your foot into the middle of the board.
