Double E Company Ultra Lightweight External Element Strip Shafts

Double E's new proprietary aluminum extrusion minimizes shaft weight in both light and heavy–duty applications (over 20% lighter than Double E’s standard SR–2000 strip shaft while maintaining the same strength). It is affordable and easy to maintain. The shaft features brass air valves for corrosion resistance, custom–made steel journals for long-lasting and easy drop-in replacement of heavy, outdated shafts. These shafts are the most ergonomic on the market. Their aircraft–grade aluminum bodies are made with an exclusive extrusion that allows the shaft to carry heavy roll weights without deflecting. The shafts also have high–performance bladders which inflate to force the gripping elements out to grip the inner diameter of any type of core. The design of the shaft ensures that core distortion is minimized if not eliminated.

Rugged hard rubber gripping elements are standard, offering excellent grip and durability. Gripping elements can be replaced easily by loosening a double set screw. Bladders rarely fail, but if necessary, replacement is simple and quick.
