With 160 pounds of pressure needed to flex the Alliance 160, you better shoot over 80 MPH to make this shaft whip. If you can do that, your shot just got net ripping speed with this in your arsenal. Used by the big boys for time and space shooting from the outside.

the 85 flexes more to your shot but the 160 is a lot harder to flex

Will this shaft dent? A lot of people have told me it can and a lot say it can't, it can only break. Someone just tell me straight up if it can or can't

does this whip every time you throw a pass or is it only when you shoot

Sean Morris an STX rep said if you dont shoot over 90 mph then the 160 isnt for you

I have fallen in love with this lovely shaft. It is extremely hard and will not bend no matter how much pressure is applied. It also preformes extremely well while lubricated, which is key. It is almost ready for usage, I just have to give it it's circumcision.

so i had been thinking of getting this shaft already but when i heard about the contest i decided i really wanted to get it. i got the 135 and it is amazing. for being a composite shaft it is very light and extremely strong. when you are passing normally you don't really feel anything but when you so a hard feed or take a shot you can tell that the shaft is flexing. Unfortunately for me i actually bought this during the area of time for the contest and now they keep adding more time cause most people won't buy this shaft because of the price.

I know the shaft is very expensive, but my friend's dad came up with the technology for this shaft, and i used it last summer. You can really feel the shaft bend, but it is very durable and will last you longer than most other shafts. This shaft is Especially good if you are a pole or LSM

the number on the shaft equals the pounds of force that it takes to bend it about a third of an inch

There are 3 FLEX levels as not all players are the same. A stronger power guy will not need or want the same amount of FLEX as a finesse player. Check out the microsite to learn more and find your FLEX: http://alliance.stx.com/
