Pro Stock Shafts

I want to buy the AK27 warrior shaft. i find the pro stocks are much cheaper. ive had alot of OPS that are prostock and liked them but is there much difference between a pro stock shaft and a regular one?

Other than of course no warranty and potential graphic variations, there can't be much. I have two prostock dolomite shafts and I love them. The decision was easy when I could get either one retail dolo shaft or two pro stocks. They did come in flexes I could not find from retail shafts. I own a 70 flex (kind of an experiment) and a 95. I think the height and everything is about the same.

I'm sure you know this already but some people dislike the incredibly boxy shape of this particular shaft. So I figured I would mention it anyway. Pick it up I say ;P, I hear it's a *****in' stick.

I bought a ProStock Dolomite shaft as well and I haven't put it down since. Can't beat the price even though there is no warranty, that's for sure.

Your shaft flex will get stiffer the shorter you cut it down. just because you buy a stick and it says 85 and you cut 2 inches off (since im tiny) it will be about 100 flex
