  Carbon is not inherently stiff. If one
  Posted by: ezwater on Feb-04-14 11:10 PM (EST)
 

orders from an intelligent maker like Mitchell, one can get very nice flexibility, and longevity. My carbon shaft Mitchell is about 18 years old. I also have a Clinch River paddle with a carbon/Kevlar shaft that is reasonably flexible.

We really need to get over the stiff carbon shaft myth. What do they make pole vaulting shafts out of?
