I would figure its not going to be a reliable part. Darn shame too, It was going to loose me 15 grams.

I would have been at 1615 total weight. With even 8 HD Body clips and all.
I would have never thought that you could polish it. Amazing.

You will notice that some people are using arrow shafts for buggy parts, like fore/aft braces and linkages and such. They are ultra durable along their length, but they hate side hits............. That is a damn shame cause they would be WAY cool to use.
