Thanks for sharing that.

Now I wonder what is inside the other brands to make them "different".

Agreed...way cool for you to do and share. Thanks.

But...

How did it break!? I love me some cue-must-pay stories.

So it is a laminated wood for the first few inches and then filler from there to threads? And the filler density changes from Tip--> thread end?


So keep your nose clean keep it on a shoe string
With no opposing no undue disclosing
Nothing stale nothing old or decomposing
Nothing empty nothing bold or over knowing
Nothing more than tasteful reconstruction
Of the plot that edifies all our instructions
It's on the goodness of our dime that you can function

I don't think it's laminated, that looks like growth ring grain. Kind of defeats the purpose of having a carbon fiber shaft.

Near interesting...I think the area at the tip shows near identical spacing, but then as you look lower, the uniform pattern does appear far more natural.

For a mass production product, that's pretty sloppy work.

They designed it to maintain their famous "Meucci roll". God knows what that other stuff is. Looks like something out of a clogged drain. I hope PFD used an N95 working on that thing.

I can only imagine how they got here.

The were sitting around the boardroom one day and someone said "I know, let's make a carbon fiber shaft". And then someone said "I know, let's make a wooden shaft and make it look like carbon fiber." and someone said "why waste all that wood? Let's make a carbon fiber shaft, plug it with our unusable wood, and stuff it with shit we find." And someone said "why didn't I think of that?" and high fives for all.

Sounds plausible.

Especially if you have seen their normal LD setup.



It allows the ferrule to "flex" out of the way of the cb.

Sometimes I think it would be incredibly hard to make a great pool cue that people love, but maybe not as hard as I think, seeing the inside of the revo was a little disappointing, but dang what is this muck inside, lol

I got a good belly laugh from "power piston technology" and this pic ,
thank you both.
And a big thanks to Paul for the thread.
