the carbon fiber is about $2 each shaft min 6, so I might try it
if you get those 316ss shafts (even if you buy 100 for 4 a pop, so 400$ total .), you still only got 0.5mm wall thickness ... and probably this shaft is ridiculously heavy and still bends (what do I know, I really dont know squad about steel qualities ...)
... what I do know though is that I have my outer shafts for this purpose and they are good - dont need any others (or better wouldnt, if I'd still be flying my coaxes ... which only rot along on shelves or in boxes ...) - ask LUV, he can attest to the quality of those shafts (the catch is, you will need a rotorhead that can hold on a shaft without guideholes ... which I have ...)
