Yea but Bauer shows flex intervals towards the top of the shaft, so you know what the flex will be based on how its cut, like my One90 is an 83 flex because of where it was cut

The tape thing someone mentioned works...but drawing a line and taking your saw and cutting a tiny groove into the line before you start to seriously saw works fine. Sounds like you've cut wood sticks before...just the same. Don't worry so much Plus, the straightness isn't that big of an issues unless you are reallllly inept cause you cover most of the area with tape/knob anyways so it's not gonna be really noticeable. But be sure to stick that cap or plug back in....taking a core sample of someone or getting your finger caught isn't a good thing.
