Unless I've misunderstood their announcement vid, I don't think the FX poles bend any differently than the old Pacers. I think their flex ratings just work differently.
Listen to the vid; ask Gill what the equivalent FX flex # is for the pole that you're considering buying; and if it fits in your series, then it should be OK.
Maybe someone here on PVP has the table that translates the old flexes to the new ones?
It's been over a year since I listened to the vid, so I might have missed something, so buyer beware ... check it out yourself!

I wam very curious to know his progression in poles from 14 to 14'6 and soon to be 15 though. What is the length wieght and flex of his biggest pole now and what is the wieght and flex of the 15 you might buy

14' - 160 - 19.2 flex
14' - 165 - 17.1 flex
14' - 170 - 16.7 flex
14.5' - 165 - 18.8 flex
14.5' - 170 - 16.7 flex
The 15 footer is a 155 with a flex of 16-17.
