There is a big difference in how they are made.
Go Superior, and read Billavista's review over on pirate regarding how its done.

true, but all the manufacturers have american and foreign made shafts, so depending on which you get, the quality goes up and down.

Just to clarify, does Superior have "american and foreign made shafts"? Are you suggesting there is a quality variation between Superior shafts?

just about any of the manufacturers have american blanks and imported blanks. As to whether they have a strength difference is a matter of opinion I suppose. Whether Superior uses import or not, I am not certain on, maybe I shouldn't have said ALL the manufacturers when I don't know for certain. I know if you order shafts from Dutchman, they can cut you either kind of blanks. You'll have quality variation in shafts regardless though. Just the name of the game.

Bobby makes great products, no doubt about that. He started addressing birfield issues with toyota guys and he's just rolled with it.

His stuff looks good, but is it available for the JK (yet?). On the web site he just has the older wrangler model.
