They sell Prime-M also as a stand-alone shaft with selection of different joints, they offer B-Lock (Becue joint), Unilock, Radial and 3/8x10 at the moment but Becue would be probably able to install some other joints as well upon request. I will write my review of Prime-M probably tomorrow evening so you will see
What’s a uni-loc radial? I have several cues with a radial pin. Not sure if it’s the same. I’ve never heard of the radial pin be called a uni-loc.

Uni-loc is the company that makes both the Uni-loc QR and the Radial. https://uni-loc.com/engineering/

Update on joints- Prime-M can be ordered with 5/16x14 joint with the same price as with the other joints i mentioned before. My friend tested my cue few days back and he ordered Prime-M 12.5 with 5/16x14 joint for his Schon cue today

Played and owned both revo and cuetec. Revo is stiffer but the cuetec is very stiff as well and really played just superb.

I don't know who sells them but got one for a retip here.
It has a see-through pad/ferrule.
Does not look like the usual weaved CF.
12.5mm and grows to around 14.1mm to the middle.
Not like a Predator or Meucci " pro-taper".
But, not conical either.
More like a Euro taper, I guess.

Jack Potter doesn't like any deflection?


Make sure you check your references before you buy on this site. Even a mod here engages in bad business!

No Becue booth at Derby but I will be there working. You can schedule time with me in my down time to hit with a Becue. I will be delevering some shafts that were on order and may have some extra in Uni-Loc, Radial, 3/8x10 and 15/16x14 as well as B-loc (B-joint) These will be 29 inch and 31 inch length and might have some 30 inch all spread over the 12.0 and 12.5 Prime M Pro taper. Also a few 5.1 M, conical taper 11.8mm shafts in most of these joints.

Seyberts has the shafts. I bought one a month ago. I can't comment on whether or not it's better than a Revo, but I like it

What was you using before you bought the Becue?

Do you like the Becue better than the one you were using?

I personally like the Prime M 12mm better than the Revo 12.4mm.

As others have said, it has a softer hit, with a little more deflection. Having the lowest possible deflection turns out not to be the best feature in a cue for me.

I really want to buy the Cynergy shaft now, so I can decide if I may like that shaft even better.

--> I now own 3 CF shafts. A cue companies dream customer. Lol

I was using a 314-3 before and a 314-2 before that. I definitely like it better. The only thing I've been looking into is whether or not I should seal it. It's smooth enough, but it's kind of a raw wood type smooth. I've resealed my shafts for years and got used to them being smooth as glass

I've thought about getting a Cynergy as well just for something different. I haven't sold one of my cues yet, so if I get that itch it might go off the market and get a new shaft

I too have all 3 now and 6 CF shafts in hand. The Cynergy is my least favorite at this time. Deflects more like wood than the Revo and becue. However it has a very solid hit. The ferrule on it is actually bothersome as I'm so used to not having one in so long. I'm getting the tip changed now because I'm not a fan of the sniper. Having a g2 soft installed and hopefully I'll feel more comfortable with it.

I really do still like my 12.4 Revo the best but I also really like the feel of the 12mm prime M. I think that whoever makes an 11.8mm CF shaft 1st with a pro taper is what I'll use 100% of the time.

I have never tried the REVO 12.4, but I have shot with the 12.9 and I like the Becue 12mm better than that one.

I tried the REVO before the Becue and it didn't excite me. When I first shot with the Becue, I thought, "damn, I wouldn't mind having one of these", but I didn't rush out to buy one. Later, I got an offer I couldn't refuse, so I jumped on it.
