Quill vs Diablo

Post by janesy » Thu Dec 13, 2018 6:48 am

Is the weight difference between the Quill and the Diablo found in the shaft or the insert? One can't weigh the same as the other but be 1.5" longer.
I've never torn down a Diablo.

MOBU Micro BD345 "Greener"
Xtra Micro BD310 "Small-Fry"
Micro Axe MOBU.

That’s interesting Chris that the diablo insert you have is so different from the one I pulled. Yours has a much smaller shoulder on it.
