Graphene is amazing stuff but it is decades away from being in a pool cues.

Vulnerable to an oxidation environment....
...so more than just your stroke may get rusty.

‘Course, they’re working on the downsides, including conducting electricity...
...big change from wood, which is an insulator.

China already has plenty of fabricators using it (I've not read of one fabricator outside of lab experiments fabricating outside of Chine). You can find it readily available in...

3-D printers (small volume)
Screen protectors (conductive)
Paneling (brittle) (replacements for Carbon fiber)
Solar panels (tempered polymers) (crack guard)
Roofing sealants (self adhesive types)
Excavating mesh (replacement for ABS)

Would this be better than a Predator REVO? Sure. Would this be cheaper? LOL!

I learned about this material about a decade ago for conducive touch screens for mobile devices (its most notable usage). I've never seen it in a reasonable price point as a drop in replacement (outside of screen protection that is). All the uses I've listed I actually read through IT channels, usually the computing side of the machine that is using the material.

I actually found about auto manufacturers that are using it to build car parts. Ford is going to build a car with a lot of body parts. The old advertising super lite, stronger than steel.

There was a very small car built in Europe in the 1950's named graphene.

I don’t want to burst your bubble since I want you, Chuck, to bring us (me) a graphene Shaft. But since I said “you heard it here first” when talking about graphene and shafts a while ago, I’d love it if you were the first to actually bring it to reality.

Really? Callaway is using it in golf balls. Not that exotic anymore.

Do you recall the builder?

I remember the dimunitive Dauphine by the French firm Renault, but cannot place the Graphene.
