Riffe and Mori shafts would work.

Re: Info on shaft for 55 hybrid

How bad is it bent?

You can straighten it with some patience and it will last.

Rob Allen won´t work, because of the way they are rigged at the butt, the shooting line protruding will prevent the shaft to engage. Riffes are the way to go.

What kind of gun? I think you'd need to know what type of mech is in the gun (Euro/USA)

Euro is a rounded, half moon notch while USA is a square notch.

Try straightening it first, if it is only bent in one direction you can usually get it back to being pretty straight.

Re: Info on shaft for 55 hybrid

I'm assuming a Wong 55" regular hybrid? If so, why not call Daryl? Wong shafts will work and so will Riffe, Spearcrafters, Ray Odor, Mori, Etc. You pay for quality and it does make a difference.

Re: Info on shaft for 55 hybrid

I was able to straighten the shaft out nicely to were it will roll level on the table, I will however, give Ray odor a shout for a back up. Thanks for all of the advice gentleman
