ve flyte glass blade straight glass shaft
VE Flyte Glass Blade Straight Glass Shaft has an aggressive catch, which rewards starting the stroke further forward and with its gradual taper towards the neck the blade feels smoother in the later parts of the stroke. This shape has slalom inspired design DNA to its core.
This blade is made from 100% glass fibre which is pre-impregnated with toughened epoxy resin making it strong, robust and hard-wearing.
Supplied with a ground glass shaft this shaft is more flexible but slightly heavier than carbon shaft. If you’re looking for a stiffer and lighter shaft choose the carbon version however some prefer the gentler feel of fibreglass.
