purchased a sanded Revo shaft.....any health risks?? - 08-22-2019, 10:09 PM

Hi friends,

I recently purchased a Revo carbon fiber shaft that was sanded...

apart from the fiber particles released from the initial sanding being hazardous, are there any risks associated with playing with this sanded shaft?

or am I okay since the dust is long gone?

Thank you in advance for sharing your insight.

more worried about whether or not the shaft is stable. how much did he take off? carbon shafts are basically just a couple of rolled up sheets of 'paper'

Or why would anybody buy it? The warranty is now void.

It's not fiberglass.

Ugh, was it $50?

Otherwise you overpaid

Why the hell was it sanded? The finish on the one's i've seen have been super slick.

There might be some mental health issues. Not from the sanding. I mean before the sanding. I would think that anyone who would sand down a carbon fiber shaft has to have some kind of mental disability.
On the other hand he did find someone willing to buy it.

With really humid conditions, try the Joe Porper Talc dispenser.
It emits a very small amount of talc that is refillable. To get an
excess amount on your bridge fingers, you’d have to press the
darn thing a dozen times when only once or twice is all you need.

You can apply the talc between you fingers and not anywhere else
because of the tiny amount released. IMO, it better than the white
fingers print you often see or worse are chalk flakes left scattered
around the table. Now that’s just table debris awaiting to screw you.
