To me the feel is a little better and even though BECUE has a transparent type ferrule, it really doesnít stand out much more than the all black REVO. The white ferrule on the Meucci really helps me with cue tip placement.

Although I didnít give it a real good testing, I did try the Cynergy and to me it was okay and liked it better than REVO, but donít like it as well as BECUE or Meucci.

Just my opinion.
I think you said it was a 5/16-14.

If so, I got first dibs on it if you decide to sell it.

It really felt good on that butt you were using. They matched up good and I liked the slim butt .

I hit a few balls today with the new SVB Cuetec cue with the carbon fiber shaft and I think my Becue plays way better. The Becue, to me, hits way more "solid" and has more "ball feel".

I don't know what kind of tip was on the Cuetec, but it didn't feel as good as the Ultra-skin soft on mine. Tips are a preference, but I think a soft tip feels better on the carbon fiber shafts than harder tips.

The tiger carbon is a modified conical taper? That sounds interesting, im not really a pro taper fan. What other carbons dont have pro tapers?

Becue offers 5.1 version which has a conical taper.

I have built a few shafts with the Chinese blanks (for others); basically, installed reverse ferrules (vault plates) and phenolic joints.

They start a bit less smooth verses the mainstream shafts (Revo, Cuetec, Jacoby, Meucci, etc); however, some light wet sanding with 3000 grit makes them equivalent.

They hit great if/when built up correctly; however, the one's I have seen have a wall thickness between .049" to .052" (vs .040 to .044) making the mass a bit too high for the extremely LD I prefer.
Not a bad option for someone considering the move from a normal deflection maple.
I can get the deflection equivalent to Cuetec Cynergy with a very low mass vault plate, but I prefer less deflection.


Using the best available equipment may not improve my game; however, it does eliminate an excuse.

Until now I was playing WX900 and tried the Ignite, but was not happy with it, beacuse it had no playing advantage, especially deflection was more. At first I was also trying Revo 12.9 but did not like the feel of the hit and the sound. That was around 2 years ago.

Now I tried and bought a Revo 12.4 with white vault plate and loving it so far. Interestingly it plays from deflection point of view, very similar to my WX900. Also it does not have this annyoing Carbon sound anymore. The white vault plate is also for aiming and checking better than the pure black I think. I also have read somewhere that the shaft with white vault plate is a bit lighter than with the black original version? Somebody tested this?

Another note, compare to my BK Rush Shaft the 12.4 shaft is not so shiny anymore. Seems to have another kind of finish.
