Ok . . . . interesting.

BUT what are you trying to say ?

That your experience is representative of all ?

or you just happen to have a bad main shaft that failed ?

From what little I can see, your head block looks ok, but you have a broken shaft.

Could be . . . . since the tip speed with the opening numbers is shown at 263.7 and should be 303.45 mph

Looks like your head broke from something else . . . other than centrifugal force.

There are red dampers or infins in there, I sort of of stay away from those with a plastic head block

You definately don't want infinivations or other hard plastic o-ring dampeners with a plastic head block.

I've run reds in the plastic block without any problems but I dont fly like Stephen

I don't fly anything like Colin. I'm just a hacker like most.
