I just picked my first one up too and am excited to see what I can do with it. I can't answer for experience and advise but you can tell by yourself whether the branches are flexible. The smaller branches on mine are.

Super flexible, tight foliage, and back buds like crazy. I've had one for about a year and a half and so far it's doing well.

The procedure I use to get back buds is to let the whole thing grow out, then cut back hard everywhere. Then repeat once per season, maybe twice if it's growing very strongly.
This cryptomeria will produce backbuds even on the trunk.
