taking down a 314-2 shaft - 02-07-2016, 08:14 AM

Can you take down a 314-2 shaft without compromising the ferrule wall cracking. What Im talking about is 12.25mm. I am used to a 12 to 12.25mm shaft and like the feel. Im not crazy about the z shaft being that it is 11.75. A bit thin for me. So Im considering a sort of conical taper with the first say 8 inches to 12.25. I think this would play really well in that it would have a bit more stiffness than the z which is what Im looking for. Also considering the mezz wx900. Thanks for any imput. Happiness Mark

This is correct but the ferrule becomes paper thin coupled with soft material equals cracked ferrule fairly easy

This is the reason why Seybert's will only take down 314^3 shafts down to 12.5mm and Z^3 shafts down to 11.5mm.

OB will not cover anything below 11.25mm for OB-2/OB-2+ or OB Pro/OB Pro+. I purchased an OB Pro+ from them at 11.30mm.
