I have not personally noticed that but I wouldn’t let flex deter me. The MKs have been out awhile and if shafts were snapping, we’d be reading about them here on THT.

Had a 36 volt Rhodan on my Cobia 256 and now an 87 inch Minn Kota on my 32 Sea Vee. You’ll love the anchor mode - truly a game changer if you anchor. If you can swing it, do it!
