    If price is no object...

    1) Sandy Cone
    2) Randy Ouverson
    3) Superior / USA Alloy / Longs
    4) Yukon
    5) Warn
    6) everyone else that claims to make an alloy D60 shaft.

    Of course, for me, price is always a concern... so I went with the best value in the D60 shaft market and got some 4340 Yukons. These can be had for less than $450... for a complete set of inners/outters. Yukons version of the Jantz Joint is coming soon (2-3 months) and when running those joints the D60 yukon shafts will have a guarentee. Think its lifetime, but I'd check with Mac over on pirate to be sure. In any case, the Yukons are a hell of a buy especially for someone like me who wants strong shafts but has to pinch every penny I can so I can afford other parts for my K5. :thumb: :D

    i think we all have to watch our wallets unfortunately, but i was just throwing it out there in the sense that if you were going to buy some shafts would you pay 500 for a set that might have a possibility of breaking over paying 700 for a set that definately wouldnt break (trying to find some middle ground between price/time/strength).

    You didn't word it like that in the poll. I voted Superrior because of the listed shafts they are hands down the best. I run Yukon because they fit my needs and budget. Will I maybe break a shaft and curse my actions, could happen. Thats the chance I took.
