Those of you that have played both can you give me your opinion on which one you prefer?

I have used the R12.9 for about a year and hit with the R12.4 enough to know I prefer the R12.9 of the two. I also had the opportunity to hit with the C12.5 many times. If I had to pick my favorite out of those 3 CF shafts, I would easily choose the C12.5. It hit super nice just like my R12.9 but was more solid, less pingy of a hit. I also loved the white "ferrule" on the Cuetec. This of course is JMO and your mileage may vary. I suggest tryin them out for yourself!

I own both and the 12.0 prime m. I'm in love with all 3 it's insane. I have Zero clue as which to make my main shaft. I guess I should just keep the Revo my main since I've been using it the last 19+ months. One thing about the Cynergy I absolutely hated was the tip. Almost wrote off the shaft with the stock tip, put a g2 on it and it plays awesome. The taper on the Cynergy is super long compared to the other 2.

As far as deflection, Revo has the least, then Cynergy and becue last.

Forgot to add that it actually took me a little bit to get used to the ferrule on the Cynergy since being so used to the Revo.

I know for sure about Becue c.f. shafts which you can get 29, 30 and even 31". It seems like Go Customs c.f. shafts you can also get in 30". Don't know when Cuetec, Jacoby, Mezz will offer theirs in extra length.

Do you have a link for the Becue CF 30 inch, I can't find it.

Apply to Ricky Bryant. He is Becue official in USA and a member here with a nickname wrickyb. I'm sure he'll help you.

I suppose I should finally make my first post after all these years.. ;P

A couple of days ago I gathered some data on the taper of the Cynergy vs Revo 12.4 as I have both. See at bottom.

I have had the Revo since October and put in a lot of practice time since then and got the Cynergy early January. Almost immediately after trying out the Cynergy I knew I liked it more than the Revo mainly for the taper. IMHO the Cynergy feels better when hitting through the cue ball w/ a closed bridge as you get ~4+ more inches of travel before significant deformation of a closed bridge occurs. In the graph the critical area where the Revo breaks the closed bridge is indicated in the start "warning overlay" whereas you can easily get through to 18" w/ the Cynergy / pro taper. I also don't mind the extra bit of deflection compared to the Revo. It's kind of nice to have the pivot point at 13" vs 19".

Anyway here is the taper data and graph:

Welcome aboard (to posting). That's certainly an impressive first post -- good info.

But I've got to warn you. You raised your posts-per-day average to .00029. No telling what such a rapid increase could lead to.

Yeah the 19" pivot on the Revo is quite sick haha but eventually i got used to it. the 13" would be much easier to get used to

Is one easier to maintain than the other (between Revo /CF/Becue)? I saw that Predator recommends having tips put on my a Predator tech. Are putting tips on a CF shaft harder than normal?

Does anybody know of a store/vendor that sells Cuetec CF shafts in the LA area? I'm interested in getting one but I want to physically test which one would fit my R360 butt. It would be great if they sold an entire cue to go along with the shaft. Maybe they do, but I'm not aware of it
