to make the long story in a nutshell. I told bob, i'm getting the sceadu 50 i wanted a starter shaft, and he told me to get the thunder tiger shaft. well it turns out that i need the one way shaft.
So i did some research and KSJ seems to be a good shaft. true?

The KSJ one seems to slip after a while. If you can find one, get the Vario start shaft. The Vario unit clamps direct to the shaft on the starter making metal to metal contact. The KSJ unit uses a plastic bushing between the starter shaft and the start shaft. I got my Vario unit from Rick's.

I use the KSJ start wand with my sceadu and have yet to have a problem. I did however drill a hole through mine and stick a 3mm bolt through it to keep it from coming off (see photo).

Why don't you get the Hirobo start shaft? You can switch it between hex ball and smooth, it's low profile unlike the KSJ or Vario items, the shaft is round so it won't grind your canopy (unlike the Vario unit). Plus, it's in cool blue! You can get it from Rick's or direct from Altech (they drop ship to your door).

My vario shaft starts my OS 91 in my Freya, OS 61 in my Fury and OS50 in my Sceadu. I bought the LONG shaft version and don't even come close to a canopy scrape.

vario shaft seems to be really hard to get. I think ksj should be fine.
