durability of carbon fiber shaft - 09-20-2019, 09:12 PM

I recently replaced my old cue with a new Predator Sport with a Z3 shaft. I upgraded because my previous cues shaft had a fairly small size dent/ ding right where my bridge is placed. The ding wasn't terrible, but i constantly thought about it while i made shots. Fast forward two weeks and i have the same size ding in my new shaft. I dont understand, This cue has been babied, never dropped, set on a table or leaned against anything. It could possibly be from the inside of my case? Anyways, it bugs me so im now looking at a carbon fiber shaft like the Revo. I just want to make sure that the Revo will be more durable than a wood shaft. Any advice or experience would be appreciated.

While many have all kinds of opinions regarding carbon fiber on this site, most from no first hand experience at all, the one thing you can count on with a carbon fiber shaft is an end to those annoying dings.

You hit it on something without knowing/feeling it. It happens. NEVER seen a case cause a ding/dent. And yes, as the previous poster said cf shafts don't ding. You can scratch them if you're not careful but not ding them.
