Pechauer coming with carbon fiber shaft - 02-13-2019, 03:38 PM

Was informed today that Pechauer will be coming to market this summer with their carbon fiber shaft. It's nice to see more & more options becoming available.

Yeah seems to be a great market for them. Of course $400 - $500 for a shaft is gonna be to expensive for some of the pool playing population. Especially those that live check to check or have countless other hobbies.

With so many options and competitors buyers are going to have to become more aware of what the differences are between them in terms of materials, construction methods etc. I'm saying this because I myself am completely ignorant on the topic of what makes a good CF shaft vs a bad one.

I'm not surprised that Pechauer is getting into the market though because they have already been using carbon fiber to build their cue extensions. I have one and it works very well and is of solid construction.

I'll bet they're being made right now by folks that eat rice three times each day.

I eat rice often and I have never made a shaft. Then again, my rice comes in a cup and is from Walmart and is cooked in 60 seconds in microwave.


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?

I would buy a CF cue from pechauer if its:

Same high quality they usually produce.
Same or longer taper their current LD 11.75mm shafts have.
If its offered in 30".
If its offered in diameters between 11.75mm and 12mm.... no bigger.
A small white ferrule would be nice as well.

Thanks John..... if you read this!!!!!

Apparently they are gonna do 11.75 & 12.5 version. That's the plan as of now from what I was told.

I wonder if they will use their taper from their current p+Lite 11.75mm shafts

Also, I wonder if they will find a way to put a ferrule on without sacrificing end weight?

I hope they off 30" and 31".

I just hope it will be available with 3/8-11 threading. AFAIK the only company offering 3/8-11 right now is Cuetec and 12.5mm is too big for my taste.

If they’ll do 30”, 11.75mm, and 3/8-11 they can have my money right now.

Meucci said they are offering 5 different joints, but I didn't ask if 3/8-11 was one of them...
They are doing 30" and 31" lengths, but I believe they said 12.25 was the smallest diameter.
They will have a white ferrule.

Coming from Pechauer it'll probably be a good shaft. Of all the cues I've owned, a Pechauer is one of 4 cues, "keepers", when I stopped buying/selling/trading and looking for the perfect, (for me), stable of cues. As of now I won't consider any other CF, but I'll have a look at the Pech!
