I'd try it at least once.

Re: How short is too short? Will this damage my barrel ?

One thing is having the tip of the flopper resting on the muzzle, and another thing is having the whole flopper well behind the muzzle and over the track.

Flopper on top might be the solution, but if you are trying to maximize the distance you are shooting, then it should be at the bottom.

Are you trying to reuse a shorter than usual shaft on that gun or you are actually planning on buying such a short shaft?

Uh, I just noticed the open muzzle – how are you planning to wrap your shooting line over the spear? In front of the flopper won't do it.
I suggest buying a new one.

Whatís the length of the gun? Depending on the length, the shaft will now have a slight Ďbendí as it isnít sitting flat on the track. This may cause accuracy problems. I suggest you just get a longer shaft that would sit right on the gun.

Hey guys

Thanks for the advice, I figured I needed a longer shaft.
I just needed to hear that before I ordered a new shaft or bite the bullet and deal with the added expense & time exchanging the shaft!
I upgraded my trigger mech so I ordered a 7.5cm shaft and got it 10cm shorter (to compensate for the extra weight) - but I guess it was a too short, the Ermes trigger mech pushes the shaft a lil forward too.
