    Why don't Snooker players use low deflection shafts?

    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. A friend suggested that most snooker shafts have a conical taper which by nature has less deflection could be the reason why.
