Default Ti Nitride Shock Shafts

Are the Ti Nitride shafts stronger than regular shock shafts or is it just a coating that makes them smoother?

That's what I thought. Just needed some confirmation. They seem to bend just as easy.

titanium nitride coatings are used to provide wear resistance

I bend them faster than I can wear out the coating, so I guess I'll stick with standard shafts.
