    Perhaps what you are looking is Arc7 or Arc100LTD

    Hold means flex, repulsion is stiff.
    I have a Carlton Vapour Trail FxTi, it isn't exactly high end (£60), but it is lightly flexible and headlight.
    I had a Yonex Nanospeed 8000 which might suit you

    my feel.
    Acr7 is stiffer than Arc Z Slash. ArcZ is head heavier and flexy shaft.

    You already have some good suggestions from the above posters who have many rackets under their collective belts.

    i wonder why all high end racket are stiff racket and low end rackets are flex or med stiff.
    u can see it from their price diff...

    its almost improssible to find a good high end racket with flexible shaft on them ...lets face the reality..

    Isn't that a good news, you can get what you want at a cheaper price?

    IMO the specs that you want is more important than a question of whether one is "high end" or not. One of the reasons stiffer rackets are more expensive, is the price/quality of the carbon used, the stronger the carbon the more expensive, simple as that. Everybrand have come up with flex (high end) rackets , you just need to find which one is flex enough for you. Eg: Carlton Vapour Trail Tour, Flypower Warrior 8, Wilson BLX Vertex, RSL M10 900, etc. IMO they are all med-flex. If they are all to stiff for you, then unfortunately you may need to look for Apacs or something else, which you may not consider them "high end".

    You dont have to be LCW, LD & TBH to prefer stiff racket.

    I maybe wrong but i think stiffer racket fits better for a wristy player, whereas big swing players would be benefited from a flex racket. Maybe someone can confirm if this right or the other way around?

    As engineer myself i partially agreed that high end material comes with higher strength therefore its much stiffer and strung higher tension as examples so price would be high.

    My concern is why they cant design rackets with flex shaft with special feature and technology in them??

    why high end racket like yonex arcsb Z come with special head design but not come with flex shaft?
    why high end racket like yonex NS9900 come with fastest aerodynamic racket but not come with flex shaft?
    why high end racket like victor BS11 come with sword shape head but not come with flex shaft?
    why high end racket like apacs lethal 70 can strung 40lbs but not come with flex shaft?

    BEing a flex shaft do not need to limited to less feature or technology am i right...

    i just cant find any heavy head racket comes with flex shaft...pehaps is a design limitation...
