I've had the JJ's and currently have the Majic J's and AKJJ's. Stiffness wise the JJ's are the softest, the Majic J's are softer than the AK's contrary to the flex ratings on Armada's website. I felt the JJ's were too soft and turny, also too short. I'm 6'1 and around 180ish. The AK's are my favorite, the Majic J's float a bit better. I found the tail tends to grab at times...it might be that I just need more time on them. I hope this helps.
