McDermott, the first cue manufacturer to use carbon fiber in a shaft, has just come out with their latest version.

$359 is pretty steep, would love to try one though

The shaft companies all employ people to do the pricing that used to work for Big Pharmaceutical.

Looks very cool.
I'm glad they haven't gone the full 'Revo' with the carbon.
Maple wood still the best material for a pool shaft IMO...

I don't think that's entirely true?
Mezz has the HP2 (I think), Cuetec has the R360 that use some kind of "composite core" not consisting of wood!

Interesting nonetheless!

I think McDermott was the first to use carbon fiber in their G-Core shaft. I am certain that the G-Core came out prior to Mezz offering any shaft with carbon fiber.

Wasn't the G-Core introduced before the Cuetec R360? I was not aware that the R360 contained any other materials than wood, and to my knowledge they do not currently.

However I am working from memory here...
