Predator revo vs other shaft polls - 07-21-2017, 01:02 PM

Time to see and check our AZmembers which SHAFT they will prefer nowsince Revo is in the market.

Personally i love my 12.9mm Revo in my LE12 ice, less deflection and im more consistent in long shot. I dont really know the reason but i notice it compare playing with other wood shaft. Im not a pro and expert to give some information but to be honest, 3 of our local players here improve they game rapidly after using a revo.

Now its time to share more info and tru this poll, we can see if people are ready to move to a carbon fiber shaft although the feeling using this shaft in Untraditional....

I have been using a 12.9 since Aug.2016. That has been my daily player. I like it for a lot of reasons...but it does not play better than a maple shaft. I play the same wth both,
The Revo is a great shaft. Constantly nick free, straight and smooth. Also have a 12.4 Revo.
I use the REVO on a Predator SP6GN and on a Schon Hoppe Tribute with an adaptor/extension from NewSheriff.

I bought a 12.4 revo about 3 months ago to try it out while waiting on my 4 custom cue orders. Absolutely love it, now own 2, 1 for breaking. Sorta regret ordering all the customs because I've never shot as good as I am now. Last 7 weeks I've come in 1st 3x's, split 1st another & 1 2nd place in out weekly tournaments. Last 2 weeks it's been undefeated wins.

Standard maple for me. I gave LD more than a quick try, but I could never shake the feeling of hallowness. At a low point with my game and less motivation to play, I pulled out my Nitti merry widow and now every shot felt more solid and enjoyable.

I still have Jacoby Hybrids and a Mezz Ex Pro but others were sold off. I am sticking with my Nitti standard maple shafts. I might try a timeless timber or Kielwood shaft someday.

I shot with a standard maple shaft for a long time, then i switched to a viking v pro, then a meucci bar box pro, then 314-3's. The 314 played okay but i thought it felt very dead. Then I bought a 12.4 revo. Absolutely loved it at first then started to really dislike the shaft. Now im playing with a stuned z3 and i absolutely love it. I just cant seem to put it down. I would have to say a low deflection maple shaft plays great but a standard maple shaft will always hit better but less consistant.

Ive been using the Z shaft for many years now. Every custom cue I would buy I would match the Z shaft to it. I gave the Revo 12.4 a shot for the last couple months. I love it! I tried going back to the Z but I am sticking with the Revo.
The only negative is I love a really pretty cue, usually custom cues. The revo doesn't look nice unless it's a black cue. I also feel weird not playing with a wood shaft. Ive been shooting so good with it that I decided to look past these issues and stick with the revo.
