No, not a single moment. Both high and low flange were available throughout the 70s. Eddy preferred low flange, IIRC... Popularity of high flange slowly waned. By the early to mid 80s, mostly the attitude was sort of a bored, "Why bother?", but there was no jump the shark moment. Whatever technical advantage they were at one time thought to provide was slowly deemed irrelevant.
