          Use heart wood oak,Hickory,ash or any other hard wood center grain then turn it. Their is a reason pine is not used for baseball bats,sledge and regular hammer handles why? strength!!

                You gotta wrap the wood with steel or heavily reinforce it

                      That is not a mullet Cleetus. You have to have at least three inches for it to be classed as a mullet, smh.

                                                  You need a round piece of wood! Get wood in the same diameter as the stock one. Throw a piece on a wood lathe or something.

                                                      Use wood. Drill holes and fill with fiberglass resin. Then wrap entire wood length in fiberglass matting and resin.

Bambus for example, too id maybe cut the wooden part a bit longer since its much more flexible than the metal shaft to prevent the difference between the both materials and twistabiltys? I hope that makes sense, funny idea tho. What about a giant spring as shaft? That would be interesting too
