    Has anyone else experienced excess flex with the M@RS MD shaft? I have my AT Pro attached to mine and wing it fairly normal in my opinion, but the product flexes as if it was being used as a water machine. I can feel the weak point is in the handle of the shaft, leading me to believe that the plastic has developed a crack or that the plastic is becoming weak due to the constant motion. I have reached out to M@RS MD twice but have not received a response in over a week, any suggestions?

    Nobody else on this?

    I have personally used Froggy's setup and it was nice at first but it's almost as if the plastic in the handle has become weak. The thing flexes like crazy now. You can actually feel it twisting and bending in your hand.

    Imagine attaching a coil to the end of a fishing rod and swinging that. It's wobbly and semi-out of control. It would drive me nuts.

    Shame on MARS for not making this right.

    A VERY STRONG DO NOT RECOMMEND ON THE MARS SHAFT -- based on laughable longevity and non-existent customer service
