  Not too flexy
  Posted by: Glenn_MacGrady on Feb-05-14 2:02 PM (EST)

Perhaps I voiced concern before I got the straight shaft that it might be too flexy at the relatively long 57" length. (The shaft is long because the blade is ZRE's relatively bottom heavy tulip shape, or whatever they call it.)

Having used it for three years, I like the flex. Sort of like a solid wood shaft of about the same length and diameter. Racing types or people who want every gram of force for efficiency may want the stiffest possible shafts, but not my old and slow shoulders.
