Iíve only played my revo and the mezz.. The only difference I could tell was taper and it didnít make that sound a revo does when you hit the ball. Other then that I could have changed over to the mezz really easily. The hit was the same to me..

I had a 12.4 Revo, wasn't bad but didn't feel like it was for me. Picked up a BeCue Prime 12.5 and like it a lot, did swap the tip. I've hit some balls with the Jacoby and Cuetec, Cuetec had a bit more flex than I like with the longer taper. The Jacoby felt good. I still like playing with my maple shafts though.

The 15k cuetec shaft is way different from a revo but very similar to a becue if the becue has a similar diameter and tip type. Revo is also very, very similar to mezz.

Revos hit much, much harder in general and are a lot lower in deflection than cuetec but only a "little" lower than becue when same tip and "on par" with mezz.

It had to be the tip, installer method etc...etc.. because the cuetec, like the becue, hits very soft compared to a revo with same tip..... and will almost never have a ping sound unless it's due to the tip.

I've played every CF production shaft on the market to date "other than" the pechauer. I'm really looking forward to using the pechauer.

Change your tip and ping should go away. If it doesn't, send the shaft back.

Alright, so I had the Revo 12.9 played with it for a couple of months. I didn't care for it
to much, but I think it might have been the size, so I traded it away. It's been about a year
or so. Last night I received my B Cue 12.0, loved it, the size is right, the hit is good.
If I make the transition from an LD wood to this full time it will take a while, but I really like
the B Cue, it just looks odd, but it's a great shaft

My first experience with the revo was like what you described, to the letter.

Then, my loving wife bought me a 12.4 revo and it was much better....other than the, as you said "odd" look.

Well, after a short time I adjusted but still missed the "visual" a a white ferrule gave me. So, I gave Ricky a call and tried the becue.

The Becue, to me, well... it was extremely close to the revo 12.4. It had a "little" more deflection but, not enough to make a difference.

On the other hand, the becue "felt" and "sounded" more like a solid wood shaft. Much, much more so than the revo did. It also was better visually.

Alas, I had to stay with the revo 12.4 since my wife bought it as an anniversary gift.

No, I don't like the dog house so, I'm still playing the revo 12.4.

To me, the cuetec/muecci (spelling) are lesser cues than the becue, revo and mezz in CF.

I've not tried the pechauer yet but I have a feeling that it will contend with revo and becue unlike the other brands.

And yes, like a friend of mine says...lol...:

But, but Shane is one of the world's best with the cuetec CF.

Shane is one of the best with "any" shaft. Most all knows that but, that's marketing and nobody beats Predator at marketing strategy.

I got to try the 12.9 Revo 1st and didn't like it either because of the size. Wrote off the CF right then. Decided to give the 12.4 a try about a year later and absolutely fell in love with it. A little over 2 years now and don't see myself going back to wood. I also have the becue 12.0 and Meucci 12.25 30". Had the Cynergy and sold it. I keep going back to the Revo the most because I got used to completely no ferrule.

i wonder if predator will add a ferrule? adding that option would kill some competition

i played with revo 12.4 - kamui ss last weekend, two 10-ball b'n'r right off the bat..great feel in powerful strokes. wanna buy. then tried some one pocket with it - terrible feel and response on touchy shots. it was like night and day. both my playing partner and me were equally puzzled. i don't know what to make of it, maybe buy one for 10-ball/9-ball. but i'm a one shaft kinda guy, for consistency..

I bet in another year Predator will offer a new Revo 2.0 shaft to get more buyers.

If they offer one that resembles a wood shaft but, performs like the revo 12.4....well, I'm in.

Until then, I'm a revo 1.0 guy..... unless pechauer mans up. We'll see soon enough.

It can be done, that's for sure. I believe they will be forced to eventually or lose business in the end.

Not to mention, offer different diameters!

I think they still have the 11.8mm in the works. One of these threads I read recently someone got to play a little with the 11.8 Revo. They will make the pad white now if you request. I don't want the ferrule anymore, got so used to not having it now.

If I had to choose between smaller diameter or white ferrule, I would choose smaller diameter (11.8mm)..... no doubt in my mind.

However, if I could get 11.8 mm and an actual ferrule of 1/4" to 3/8" and the ferrule NOT change the performance, well, I highly doubt I would ever buy anything other than revo....regardless of price.

I'm willing to give more, "if" it's what I "want" instead of this "cookie cutter" cue crap.

Adding a ferrule will change the deflection. Its carbon fiber, you can paint it post production.

Has anybody tried a piece of white tape or paint to simulate a ferrule on the Revo. Seems like a possible simple solution, an idea anyway.
