Carbon Q- lesser known manufacturers - 07-24-2020, 12:05 PM

I currently play w/ a Predator 314-3 on a generic butt w/ Uniloc pin. I like it, but am looking for something more personalized. I am considering having a simple 4 prong butt made to pair w/ a carbon shaft.

I've been disappointed the cost of these shafts hasn't come down more & was wondering if any offerings from the smaller companies were worth trying. Put another way, are there quality CF shafts out there for cheapskates?

My game D/N really need to make this jump. I am a C+/B- player. Just think it might be something fun to play around with.

Yes, there are some lesser known or maybe better said lesser named companies. There is a Chinese company which has a knock off Predator and another knock off carbon shaft. Unfortunately I do not know how they play. But they were advertising around $100.

Don't be a cheapskate and purchase a Predator SP2 Revo series cue from Seyberts. They are $899 and you can use the affirm payment option and use a monthly payment plan. That way you know it's quality that will last.

Been hearing good things about this company: https://go-customs.com/product/go-customs-cue/ Carbon-fiber butt and shaft. Lots of shaft diameter options.

fishermanOICUR1 of this forum made me a carbon fiber shaft for a very reasonable price. Give his work a look, you won't be disappointed.
