Recent results on the high-spin states of a range of mid-f7/2 shell nuclei are presented. Coulomb energy differences (CEDs) as a function of spin have been deduced for the mirror pairs 4925Mn/4924Cr and 4724Cr/4723V. A quantitative understanding of the variation of the observed CEDs at high spin is presented in terms of rotational alignment and band-termination effects and we show how the shape-change of the nucleus affects the CED. The experimental results for the CEDs are in excellent agreement with the predictions of a full pf-shell model.
