My HP-1 came with a Black Dot shaft & Lepro tip. So I am wondering if I am looking for more of a hit like my Helmstetter gives me, (why not just use the helmstetter I know but I would like more than one cue that I like to shoot with) will replacing the shaft get me there? If so, what would be the best option? I have not researched these except for the price on budgetcues and am wondering what the difference in the hit will come with each shaft.
Black Dot - I have
Red Dot - $163
Meucci Ultimate Weapon - $220
Predator 314 - $250
Predator Z - $250
OB-1 - $229
OB-2 - $229
I don't like the black dot shafts. You need an older 12.75-13mm Meucci shaft without the silly dots.
You don't need to spend those ridiculous prices for a shaft either.
For those prices, you can buy a new Meucci with a new shaft.
If you want to buy a good shaft...I recommend the McDermott I-3 shaft.
