I'm watching the 2021 World Seniors Snooker and I started to wonder about the
shafts they are using. Everyone seems to be using the same type of ash shafts.

Our league of 21 teams (Broken into 3 divisions) usually runs 3 weeks of a single elimination playoff. Winner in each division usually gets about $150 per team. This along with payouts for total team wins during the regular season.
