    I just ordered the Victor Onigiri, it's supposed to be head heavy but flexible. You should also check out the BS12 if you can still get it.

    It's generally described as more flexible than some pros and intermediate players desire. Have you tried swinging it? It's flexible.

    You don't want to see your racket flexing during a swing... lol. On the other hand, you may be able to feel it flex as you whip it forward into strike. This is where the shaft helps produce more power.

    As suggested above, look at 4U TK Onigiri.

    Update: I got the chance to try the Onigiri and BS12.

    BS12 is more flexible than any racket I've ever used before. You squeeze the handle towards the end of your shot and the racket stores up spring energy and then releases it at the point of contact. It feels amazing. I've never seen anything like it.

    Onigiri is stiffer and harder to use (I got the 4u) but it's fast and powerful.

    If you're looking for flexibility, you need to try out the BS12.
