I second LongHorns2. I don’t understand the point of this approach. It seems to be based on the assumption that people want shafts that are carbon but look and feel like wood. I have never heard anyone state such a view. Yes, people who don’t like cf often say it’s because cf does not look and feel like wood. But this does not mean they want a cf shaft that looks and feels like wood. It means they want wood!

I suppose the next big idea will be to produce a wood shaft with a carbon fiber covering so it is wood but looks and feels like carbon fiber!

I think this idea is based on a flaw in logic and I am skeptical that it has any chance of success. But hey, I could be wrong.

OB cheaped out in the CF race. Then again, their pretty much dead in water for now anyways.

OB would have to almost start giving cues away fir free to win back some of their looonnngggg time customers they have "RUN OFF" since they lost Royce.

At the rate OB is going, their cues will end up being sold by Walmart, if Walmart will have them.

OB Cues is a sinking ship it's only a matter of time. They have a controlling dictator that runs the company. The powers that be better wake up soon.

Taking any quality questions aside, I am not sure how this shaft would be a carbon fiber shaft to complete with the REVO and others. A CF core wood shaft will not have the same characteristics as a CF shaft. McDermott has a CF insert in the wood shafts in their i models, and after trying them, I would place them at the bottom of my shaft list. While the standard OB shafts would be in the top half.
