Rogue Vs Revo Custom - 09-06-2019, 07:12 AM

The Custom Revo will be around $600 (the low deflection is a huge selling point).

The Rogue is $475 out of the box.

Decisions, Decisions...

Deflection amount matters much less than how you can play with the shaft. 0 deflection won't necessarily make people pocket more balls. There is probably 20 times as much missing from just flaws in mechanics and not hitting the cueball or object ball where you thought you were aiming than missing because someone did not adjust for deflection once a person gets past beginner levels.

Hunting after deflection levels in shafts is like buying a car based on numbers on a page. oooo look, 5.4 seconds to 60 instead of 6. Then next thing they are in a ditch because it's a rear wheel drive car with no traction control and they side sideways off a road.

Seriously great and valid points.

I just don't want to "re-learn" getting a new shaft (as much). Mine is quite low deflection and I'm just toying with the idea.

Spend that money on lessons. Learn to play better position and shoot only on the center line of the CB (high/low/center). When you do that, the shaft can be low deflection, high deflection....it won't matter.

Of course that's much easier said than done.

Where did you get 600 for the Revo?

Looks like the few that predator released with different pins have only been 550.

Is this a thing? Holy crap I've been doing that for the last few weeks as I've been switching between HD and LD shafts. It was the only thing I could figure out that always worked since I have no idea how to compensate properly.

Guaranteed mediocrity. And guaranteed if you're a good player, you don't stay on the vertical center line.

If I ever bump my head hard enough to go CF, it'll damn sure be a Pechauer product!
