View Full Version : Shaft Weight / Playability correlation?

08-12-2008, 07:02 PM
I just got a new Carolina Cues with 2 shafts.
It plays great with both shafts, but I quickly determined the "A" shaft.

Weighed them today, the A shaft is 4.1 oz, the B shaft is 3.6 oz.
I've noticed this phenomenon before.

Assuming identical tapers/specs, will the heavier shaft play better more often than the lighter one?

Or could this be a case of playing better with a more forward weighted cue?

Maybe we need come up with a scale for forward weighting like the swing weight of a golf club.
