I'm from the UK and there is only 1 dealer. Luckily he went to the US open to play and pick up stock so I got my order in just in time.
I might be wrong, like I said, I have never tested them specifically for deflection and actually didn't get to spend a lot of time with Revo, only a couple of racks. So it is just my personal observation.

Also, some people love the Kamui Clear Tan Soft that comes with the Black, I simply hated it, been playing with Ultraskin Ivory Soft and Medium on two of my previous shafts for some time now and I have never miscued so much in my entire life after started playing with the Kamui that came with the shaft. So I would recommend spending some time with it and consider changing the tip if it doesn't speak to you. Sometimes it makes a huge difference.

That's what I'm talking about. With every other CF shaft out, the company provides some information and directions on care and such. Nothing from Jacoby about any of it. I thought there would be something that came with it since nothing on there website but just the shaft all need in the tube. I think we have more info on the unreleased Pechauer already than the black

I asked if the Black came with wipes and he said no and not to use them??? I can't remember the reason why or if he gave one. He just said use a micro fibre towel. Do you think it's just because Jacoby haven't got their own brand of wipes or you shouldn't use them for some reason?
There is very little info available on the Black and it's already been released! A link to the facebook discussion would be really helpful, even what page on facebook.

See I didn't know and I asked on the Jacoby page with no response. The shaft felt a little gritty when I got it just like the Meucci so I used a Revo wipe on it. Just like the Meucci the wipe was completely black after without ever hitting a ball yet.

This is why some info should've been included.

Maybe ask the dealer you got it from? I think all CF shafts are like that and maybe that's why we shouldn't be using wipes in the first place?
How are you finding the deflection so far compared to other LD and CF shafts?

I haven't been able to shoot with it yet. I have severe back issues and this past month I haven't hit 1 ball. I went to league last night and it's the 1st time I've left the house in 4 weeks, that's how bad my pain has been. I had plans to hit a few but it didn't happen.

I recently got a Jacoby Black, and I tested its deflection using a procedure similar to Dr. Dave’s video. It was identical in deflection to my OB + pro, as far as I could tell. Less than a house cue (of course) that I’ve compared to my OB, but I would guess a little higher than the lowest-deflection shafts on the market.

The finish is perfect, not like the nasty-looking one in the photos.

Now I’m looking for a butt to go with it (it’s radial). Any suggestions? I looked through the Jacoby site and don’t see a lot that looks like it would go well with their shaft, at least to my taste. What other companies or cues have butts that would work with this shaft?

I've got an OB-2+ shaft but i've never played with a Pro +. They look exactly the same apart from the ferule, both 11.75mm. Do they have the same deflection?
It's good to hear about the finish
This is the butt I have that will be going on my Black when it arrives: https://jacobycustomcues.com/searchd...0yDbAcinfbPAHM
I'd suggest sticking with a jacoby butt so the joint is an exact fit. Sure you could find a used Jacoby for sale on here or ebay etc with a darker colour. The new ones available on the site now are good but not to my tastes. A new Jacoby is $$$ too haha. Find a used darker model and stick with Jacoby for the better fit

The custom mags are cheaper and match a darker shaft. You can get it in Purple, Blue, Red and Pink. No inlays though and they aren't in stock so you would have to order and wait

For best fit you are going to have to find a Jacoby. It's so thick at .847 when most other butts are like .840. I use 2 predator butts because I usually use Revo and just been buying other CF shafts to try.

Don't know if you are on Facebook but if you are look up Gary Serrano, he has a bunch of Jacoby's for sale as he is a dealer. He's getting these in and 2nd on left is sweet, think the black would look killer on it

Wow that sure is unique! Yes those mags probably are the best fit. It seems like the butts need to catch up with the shafts. Most available butts seem to go well with wood shafts, but with more black shafts being sold, theyíre going to have to start making more matching butts.

Thanks. That one in the middle looks nice, but it also looks like it has a white joint?

My guess would be jump or elphoryn. Doubt it would be ivory if it's new. I enjoy a bit of breakup in the color of the butt and shaft, think the white joint goes great with CF shafts.

So a jacoby black shaft would not fit perfectly onto a Predator radial butt?
