Thumbs down What does the # of feel/flex mean???

The title sounds retarded i know. But when there's a board that has a rated flex of 3 does that mean it's high or low? low right?? #1 means mad stiff and #10 means max flex. riight?? or noo?

It's the other way around. 10 is the stiffest.

It's all relative to other boards in that company's product line (or so they say).

A flex rating of 5 in one brand may be softer or stiffer than a 5 in another.
