But what ever makes someone happy more power to them.
It won't necessarily make you a better player, but you will be more consistent and confident if you play with something that plays the SAME WAY EVERY TIME.

The Becue shaft isn't affected by moisture, humidity, and supposedly doesn't ever warp. Every hit on the cue feels the same. There isn't a vibrating feel on one shot and then no vibration on another one. It feels like you are hitting center ball all the time.

It is relatively low deflection and it gives you a lot of power and English if/when you need to use it.

Hawaiian Eye...What does wearing a glove have to do with using a carbon fiber shaft? I've been playing with my Revo for 2 years now, and never needed a glove.

I use a Becue, not a REVO.

The Becue shaft has an airplane paint coating and it tends to have more "drag" than I prefer. I have sweaty hands and I have always used powder when I played with my wood shafts. A glove makes the Becue go through my closed bridge much better.

If you use an open bridge all the time, you may not prefer to use a glove.

This is true.
I went full time BeCue and still don't wear a glove, but I use a little powder throughout and wipe the cue down repeatedly. If I didn't use the powder, I'd prefer the glove.

But I use mostly open bridge.

The great part about the aviation paint is that out can be lightly scrubbed with my burnishing/cue maintenance pad I used on wood shafts. It gets any kind of sticky/grime off the shaft very nicely.

The Revo recommends the special wipes to clean it down with. Scott, you have to admit you wipe down the Revo more often than you did your wood shafts.

And yes, pros using the revo are wearing gloves too, because carbon fiber will pick up bits of chalk and sweat on it's surface and not absorb them like the wood shafts did (remember how all our wood shafts would get a blue hue to them over many hours of heavy play?).

I did like that look of a heavy played wood shaft and it's something I miss after going to carbon fiber.

I'm not ranting for like or dislike of Revo shafts, but saying they are the future because of no dings is pretty specious reasoning. They don't play "better" and don't help the player perform better. You still have to adjust for the amount of squirt regardless of what shaft you use.


Specious reasoning lol. With respect either you don't understand why low deflection is more accurate, or your reasoning needs work. Do you always hit the cue ball precisely where you intend to?

Looks like Darren Appleton switched back to a 314 for the world pool masters. Maybe the first real pro to endorse the revo went back.


Pressure makes diamonds. Fire refines gold.

Play it like you mean it.

He was using the revo to break though lol He hasnít been playing. Apparently he had family issues. Maybe with his lack of confidence he decided to go back to old faithful. Or maybe he just liked the 314/3 better. Who know.. Itís not for everyone.


Player........... road line with 12.9 revo and 314/3
Break cue.... bk3
jump cue..... Fury
Case............ Molinari butterfly

If you live with one foot in the future and one in the past you'll piss all over the present.

It's been about a year now and the old wooden shafts feel odd to me. I feel the added vibration and hear the noise. There is no absolutely no doubt I'm playing better with the synthetic shaft. Can't wait to try different models.

Well, I'm not there yet, but like I said, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I know this new (to me) method of aiming will pay dividends in the future. It has to, parallel shifting is just much simpler than trying to know all the different points along the arc that is a typical cue ball path using a standard deflection cue like my long time playing cue was. This Revo shaft is close enough to no deflection that I think I will be able to do that on most shots.

The problem is in getting my brain to let me feel comfortable pulling the trigger when it "looks" wrong to me still. I'm sure over time that will change and the new method will feel natural, but right now, I'm still consciously trying to execute every shot and it's hard.

I've heard anywhere from 1-3 months to feel completely comfortable with it. I'm at a month now and I'm starting to shoot better but I'd say I'm at 75-80% of where I want to be still.
