Revo pros & cons from someone who knows how to play - 01-23-2019, 10:43 PM

I'll try to keep it short and hopefully useful to someone who's thinking about getting one.

The important and the obvious: imagine Michael Jordan in his prime playing Lebron James in his prime ( basketball 1-on-1 ). One of them is gonna win regardless of what pro basketball shoes he's wearing. Sure some shoes are more comfortable but not much of a factor in the outcome. Same thing with pool. The better player will win regardless of cue.

Why I got it. I'd go hey is that a revo? Yes. Can I check it out? Sure. I'd shoot a few balls with it hand it back. After a few months of that I realized I never missed a ball with a Revo. So I decided it was a magic stick and bought one. Quickly realized it's very possible to miss with a Revo.

The bad: yes it's true that it's so smooth you don't need a glove. But the feelings of that shaft against my skin felt uncomfortable. I prefer the feeling of wood. But doesn't matter to me since I always shoot with a glove.

The bad: if you aim using the shaft like SVB and not ball to ball like Efren it'll take time to adjust because the shaft is black. Especially true in darker rooms. First 2 days was a nightmare I couldn't aim using English ( I use the side of the shaft to aim when I spin ). After a few days it wasn't a factor my eyes/brain got used to it.

The bad: only comes in uniloc or radial so if your butts are different you'll have to change the insert which will void the warranty. I found this out when I broke my Revo. After about a month of dealing with their customer service ( nightmare ) they were kind enough to ship me a new one.

The bad: people will come up to you and ask if it's a Revo and ask to hold it. If you don't like that sort of attention it can be annoying. I don't mind.

The good. It's very low deflection. It makes me feel cool. I'm that guy with the Revo. I like the aesthetic. I like fashion and prefer nice things. I don't mind being seduced by the new shiny object. I like making money and I like spending money. Performance wise it feels good. But I'd say I'm just as dangerous with my mezz shafts. Love the wx900 for example. The mezz is 12mm the Revo is 12.4. To be honest I can play with any low deflection shaft but for now I prefer the Revo.

Note: The shaft is marketed as a 12.4, it's actually 12.5mm. Doesn't really matter but worth mentioning.

Mine came with a soft tip. I heard that it feels like a medium because it's on a carbon fiber shaft. Nope. It feels like a soft tip because it's a soft tip.

If you want it and you got the money get it. Think of it like buying a new jacket or a new pair of shoes. Don't think of it as buying a new computer. If it's better than other shafts on the market the difference is so tiny that it's not worth mentioning. It's all in the stroke, pattern play, speed control, mental game, etc etc.

This aligns 100% with my experience with mine. Iíve had it for about a year now. Very shiny shoes.

I agree as well


I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

Thanks for taking the time to write about this. I too agree, and still have no need for one. It's kinda sad to see a decent player miss, lose, struggle, and make excuses for their new 500 dollar shaft. But hey, to each their own. Great write up. Matt D.

Instead of unscrewing and storing the shaft I threw the case over my shoulder and ran to the bathroom. The revo was sticking out above my head and it hit the door frame. Didnt think much of it since thought it was impossible to break it. Get to table 7. On my first shot the dent in the shaft cut my finger.

Great review, good to see one from a great player. It's hard
to tell how the Revo plays when the guy testing it describes
himself as a banger or "not a very good player"

No mention of your coverage of the cons as to the unusual sound of the Revo when you hit it and the completely different feel feedback when you hit it? It certainly can't compare to a Mezz shaft in that regard, which are the main reasons I gave up the Revo after about 6 months.

As a believer in fine Maple shafts, here is one simple fact,

Carbon Fiber shafts will never be able to do what a Maple shaft can do.

Proof?

The hit is very different but you get used to it after a few days. To be honest if Iím playing well Iím not really aware of the cue in my hands. Iím just solving a puzzle and the balls disappear themselves. Not to compare myself to Michael Jordan, but a pro basketball player is not thinking about the way his shoes feel while heís playing. Heís just trying to win the game. If heís thinking about the shoes heís in trouble.

All cues make some sort of "sound".

I prefer a "muted" sound, if you will. That is my personal preference and it may not appeal to others.

I hate playing with a cue that makes a "high pitched pinging sound", but some people love that sound and play with the hardest tip possible in order to hear it. A lot of cues that are set up to make this sound have very "harsh" hits, which do not appeal to me.

It is kind of like dribbling a basketball. If the ball doesn't have enough air, it will make a "thud" and not respond the way you like. If you overfill it, it will bounce too high and make a different sound. I like a basketball that is filled the way it feels best to "me" and allows me to "control" it best.
