We have a party marketing a steel shaft here in Melbourne, Oz, as a 'superlite
Rifle shaft'. I cannot find any reference to it on the 'fm precision' website
and I was wondering if anyone here recognised it.
It is a 'stepped' steel shaft, VERY LIGHT at 90 gms..and it has the familiar
small 'fm precision' logo and 'made in U.S.A.' screen-printed at the top of the
parallel tip section. The 'steps' are so light that you can hardly see them but
it looks like a stepped shaft that has subsequently been through a 'die drawing'
process. The 'steps' are about 1 3/4" apart, but the top 'step' and the bottom
'step' are comprised of multiple (about 4) much smaller 'steps'. If it is not
on the website it might be a shaft that is not marketed in the USA. We are told
that many local pros are switching to them.....but I have also had reports (from
other pro-clubmakers) that these steel shafts are snapping under the grips.
Any information would be welcomed!
