As for shafts, I tried one over under 7.5mm with faceted shaft ... it did not have a flopper so I added one. But it was shooting inside 1 inch groups @ 5 meters with the facets. The rest tab has a nice hole which you tie your line to ... this tab is fully welded all around for maximum strength. This is the best location to tie your line to as it gives best shaft stability. The floppers and pin are super hardened ... a lot of material research was done to get the floppers dogtooth proof (if that is possible). Problems was that large dogtooth tuna were bending the floppers and the pin area would widen a little and the floppers would come off the pin ... this has been fixed by welding the pin and still keeping a thick "mushroom" behind the weld to prevent the flopper from popping off under extreme stress. Also some special crimpers were developed to tune the floppers ... just a small tap on the shaft and both floppers will lock. The production shafts will have TIG welded 316 cones ... now that is a first and should be really nice.
Where are these coned shafts going to be available from Majd?

Re: Hunt shafts

These are being made by Hunt with collaboration with Andrea from Deep Blue, so you can get them direct in Europe from there. Harry or Greek Diver is the dealer for those shafts in the US. The SS cones are nice as they are welded on.
