Any long curved shafts still made?

Has anyone came across a long curved shaft trimmer comparable to the Shindaiwa f230?

I know a people will say use a straight shaft but I just can't... Straights are good for heavy weedeating but for trimming around stuff I like curved shafts. I've used f230 curved shafts since I was nine; that's all my dad bought. The head spinning the opposite way on a straight is just awkward to me.

Anyway, Shindaiwa discontinued the f230 several years ago, and we only have 4 new ones in a box left. I have been looking for something as long as a f230 but can't come across anything professional.

Thanks.

The F230 is as long as a straight shaft. The stihl is nowhere near that long. Shindaiwa sells an f220 that is the same length just 1cc smaller than the f230 but they only sell it in Australia and Europe. Weird. On their site, it seems they don't sell a lot of their products in North America like they do elsewhere in the world.
