You can measure frequency and diffferent points along a shaft. Assuming you want to take a number at the 10" mark from the tip, you would clamp the tip of the raw shaft at the 10 inch mark as measured on the right side of the clamp if you are facing our frequency machine. You can take a slpit grip and put in on the butt end to give it some load, and then oscillate. You will get a reading. It will not really give you a flex, but it will give you a number that you can compare to other shafts that you measure the same way. the higher the number, the stiffer you can assume the shaft is at that clamping dimension.
