Needing a glove with carbon cue shafts - 05-23-2019, 11:24 PM

How many people think that they need or feel that the carbon cue shaft is better when played with a glove?

Yes with a glove ?

Yes ,I would buy a product that allowed me to play without a glove.

No , I would not buy a product that would make the carbon cue shaft play smooth like using a glove.

No glove required, the carbon cue shafts are really smooth enough already.

Thanks in advance to all who respond. You can choose as many options as you like.
I am doing the poll as I have a new product for composite cue shafts, that will make the bridge area very smooth to the feel.
So much so, that a cue glove is not required.

I've never used a glove and Definitely don't need one with CF shafts.

I have a CF shaft. I was amazed at how smooth it was. It was smoother than a brand new wood shaft on day one. I stopped using a glove altogether. Then it happened two or three times. I played in a very humid environment and the CF shaft felt just as bad as the stickiest wood. Thatís with good upkeep with the alcohol wipes. Iím sure the problem was my own hands. After that, Iím back to always wearing a glove.

The only one slick enough to go glove-less imo is the revo.

I have an issue with running warm anyways, and sweating hands. I went to using a glove while playing in a tournament in San Diego a few years ago. Never switched back even though I live in one of the more dryer climates there is I switched to using a Revo shaft about 3 weeks ago, maybe played a game or two without a glove. The shaft definitely is slippery after cleaning it and using a glove, the feel of it after clean, I could probably play without the glove for a while, but once my hands get a little wet, i'm sure it would get sticky. For cleaning it, I'm using lens cleaning pads from Kroger, a lot cheaper than getting the Predator wipes.

It is not for uncoated wood, like most wood shafts are. If the wood cue shaft has an epoxy or Automotive clear coat
on it, then yes it can be used.


This is to the cue equipment for sale with more info about the Cue Smooth.

we (my son and I) still use a glove with our carbon shaft some out of habit.... I tried without a glove and it was fine until later in the game... during practice strokes I could feel some grime/dirt, buildup, whatever you want to call it. simple wipe with microfiber resolves it but its very repetitive.

So now im back to using a glove.
