I believe the optional larger shaft is shorter than the standard Mach1 shaft. But of course the larger CW’s are much larger and heavier too. And for guiding, you want a short shaft anyway.
Yeah it's shorter than the standard 1.125" shaft. It's actually a design feature of the Mach1 that you can remove the saddle from the top of the dec axis to expose the center hole that goes down through that axis, and insert the 10.7" x 1.875" cw shaft completely in there where it screws into the opposite, internal side of the same receiver that you screw the cw shaft into normally.
