    Has a great selection of them. Plus, a board sponsor to boot. Give Aaron an email or go to their website. Think it's www.speyshop.com I do believe. But where I've bought all my waddington shanks from.

    I got some 35mm at Morning Hatch in Tacoma. They also had some other sizes. I am impressed by this store and the staff.
