Personally I'd liked to have seen a larger diameter hollow main shaft as used on pretty much every 700 these days. Being hollow you get increased stiffness with no weight impact, it's the way to go. Having said that I totally get why Oxy stuck with the 10mm shaft of the Oxy 5. If they had changed the shaft diameter it would have been a total re-design, pretty much nothing from the Oxy 5 could have been carried over. I'm sure that the other 700 that's in development being (presumably) a 'clean sheet of paper' design will use a larger diameter main shaft.

I appreciate that many people wont give a hoot what diameter the shaft is, as long as it works
