The only advantage I see is less risk of warping.

Bingo you might be right, and respecting good wood shaft, they will not warp. I am in hot dry AZ with low RH, you have to protect Cue in the extreme heat.

I am not stopping for an hour to shop & leaving my Cue case in the car when it 120 DEGREES. That would be asking for warpage.

I have only ever hit with one cf shaft, a Revo on a P3 butt at the Open last year, it was nice and felt ok but all I wanted was my cue stick. Older Joss butt with 314z shaft. Why? Because that's what I am used to and comfortable with.

It's a hard question to answer to the OP, but in my opinion, wood shafts will never go away.

Do y'all remember the triangle shaped wood shafts? Glad those didn't last long LOL

top players are sponsored that's why dummy. and I know several A and open players who use them. two guys I play with occasionally both have a titlist conversion by tascarella and another by Michael morgan. most guys who own one use it as their main player. wonder why. they must be shit and mezz is clearly superior. bc someone else said it is ofcourse, you didn't actually come to that conclusion on your own bc a broomstick feels the same to you. lol.

If you need an aiming system, you have no natural talent for the game. Sorry.

I can’t answer the question for sure. As far as I go, my interest in getting a cf shaft has only to due with no warping, no dings and less maintenance. The playability has nothing to do with my interest.

What I see as another major advantage is consistency. Buy two of the same CF shaft and the hit should be very very close to the same. Wood, not so much. One reason for the spliced wooden shafts was to use up all of the low quality shaft blanks.
