I use a 2 piece and like them ... I am using a nontapered and should switch to a tapered. I went with the 2 piece nontapered shaft because the stores here stock tapered blades poorly. I have a better chance of getting the curve I like in a standard blade.

I want to buy a Harrow tapered shaft, my friend owns a shop here and told mhe would make sure I got the blades I needed when he ordered stuff. The Harrow is tapered.

I also want the Bauer Supreme One95 shaft because all the reviews I have read state clearly they are durable and the people who sold them stated they seldom get customer complaints about them.

I am for certain getting the One95 shaft and a Harrow tapered shaft. I should also mention that I am 41 next month and fit in your age group. Composite sticks really did help bring back a youthful shot for me after using wood and aluminum shafts until this past December when I switched to composites.

There is a website I joined that reviews equipment and posts videos of their reviews which for sticks always include a scale weight measurement of each product to make sure the company's product lives up to the specs given the dealer.

Here is the link for the bauer Supreme One95 shaft and the One95 one piece stick as well.

And the 2 piece shaft and seperate blade review.

If it matters any I myself would like to try out a one piece One95 which is the newer one that has extra stick length and a pro flex. They make them for tall big guys like me and are the longest sticks in the rack at one of my local dealers.
