So if it makes you guys happy, we can apply a 0.03oz fudge factor to my obviously inadequate scale, and call the shaft 4.79oz instead of 4.76.
Then so it is and with 1 extra inch and the below, 4.76 seems correct (I forgot about that extra inch).
The joint is this one?

Yeah, that's the joint, although the protruding (piloting?) part of the shaft insert in the photo looks oddly tilted; mine in real life looks square to the shaft face.


I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.

It could be true that the 12.9 has lower deflection than the 12.4, but most people “measure” deflection by taking a couple of shots and then making a grand pronouncement.


It seems everyone assumes that the wall thickness is the same on the 12.9 and 12.4. Do we know if this is the case?

I'm going to assume that for sure. The only way to know is to saw 2 of them open and use a caliper, but even then the difference will be so small that even if it was intentional, how would you not attribute it to error?

Pechauer is apparently not fourth coming at all on any data what so ever about construction, they just give you that hazy overview. It's absolutely disappointing that companies will not give you all the information they have, it's a facade of grandeur. Unless it's even more concerning than that....

Pechauer may have contracted out the entire thing to who ever, and considering they're hiding behind an NDA on their own product, which is such a simple object....??? These "ROGUE" shafts may very well be rebadged Chinese shafts off of AliExpress... rogue. There is several types on Aliexpress (2 distinct molds though), so I'm going to buy 2 of them, saw 1 in half, then post the pictures of a $75 Chinese CF shaft. At the very least, everyone can see what they can get for $75 in CF.

Heaven forbid ... but I think Pechauer is better than that as a company.
