Would Matt's 7mm shaft be good for a beginner

I just removed the subrotor from my Corona and spooled it up and it wobbles real bad. I'v been looking for a vibration for some time know. I think I found the problem. Should I replace the main shaft? If so would you recommed the stock shaft, Matt's 5mm or 7mm shaft. I've never flown a heli before but I'm learning a lot rebuilding this puppy and determined to be a flyboy soon. What would you recommend for this beginner?

7mm shaft is great for anybody, even beginners. does wonderful job on vibration, and almost indestructible.

I have only had three people bend the 5mm shaft and no-one so far has bent a 7mm shaft, including me! I actually tried to bend one of the 7mm shafts and couldn't do it!
