They all feel about the same to me.
Remind me of the fiberglass shafts that Cuetec
used to make back in the day.
Are they good? Sure they play just fine.
The meucci, Cuetec, predator, jacoby carbon
shafts all feel about the same to me. Play
very similar too.
I think the ld shafts from all the top companies
play about the same as well. If they are the
same diameter.
My choice- just a solid hard rock maple 13mm

I've been trying out various carbon fiber shafts and right now I prefer
the Jacoby Black with the Cuetec Cynergy second, Revo third.
The Revo is a great shaft so the differences are minor.
Although I'm talking 12.9 mm vs, 12.3 which is a substantial difference.

I'm sure that other than the tip diameters, tips and ferrules, there isn't a of of difference, they all play good.

Iíve said it before, GO SL plays better than all listed for total performance, hit, feel and sound. Do yourself a favor.

I've tried it its good, but I think Revo is still in a whole different league when it comes to CF, they invented it if I'm not mistaken.

I know players who used to struggle to run 3 or 4 balls in a row in rotation games for years, and I literally mean years they were stuck in the same level, once they bought a Revo, now they run a rack or two from time to time, and I'm not exaggerating here or even making an advertisement here, I'm not even a rep, but this exactly what happened before my eyes.
