Do any LD shafts hit like normal shafts? - 09-11-2013, 05:03 AM

I haven't tried any LD shaft except for predators and I don't like them because of the hollow hit. I was wondering if there are any LD shafts out there that hit solid like a normal shaft and if so how do they deflect compared to predators? Thanks in advance.

I designed one for that specific reason. It is not yet commercially available though. Obcues makes the ob classic, which doesn't have the hollow hit either.

I know a few that I have played with, cheapest by far is the Players HXT shaft. Mike Webb has one that hits great, the Pechauer one has a solid hit althought it's made up of several parts. https://www.pechauer.com/low-deflect...flection-shaft.

The hollow hit is the cost of admission for using an LD shaft.... You get used to it.

Steve Klapp's old maple shafts are pretty low in deflection, but are solid maple.


Make sure you check your references before you buy on this site. Even a mod here engages in bad business!

Tiger makes some nice L/D shafts too. Compared to say, a Z-2, they feel much closer to normal.

Have heard great things about the SS360 shafts made by Bob Danielson (bdcues). Have not ordered one yet, as a friend just sent me a new shaft to try, but great reviews.

Chrippa let me try a Lambros LD yesterday. Big difference between Lambros and Predator, Lambros feels so solid. The lambros was close to the Mezz WD700 and Hybrid pro in feel, of course a very subjective feel thus opinion.

I would recomend the Ob classic line if you want a name brand mass produced shaft. And an SS360 shaft from bob danielson of bdcues if your wanting a good low deflection shaft that has a solid hit and is made to order how ever you like.

Just my .02 cents


Player: Dave Kikel
Shaft: SS360 By BDcues
Tip: Kamui Clear Soft
Case: JB 2x5/3x4 Nothing Compares to a JB case!
Chalk: Predator
Break cue: Alex Brick DymondWood
Jump Cue: Jester2

Tiger is well known for a preserved "hit" with LD properties. The X-LD is what you are looking for. PM me if you wish to purchase one.

Yes, ours. Solid hit, lots of feedback and made to order for less than mass produced ones. Here is a part of the last customer feedback we received -

"I'm thoroughly impressed by the shaft you made.
It's really spectacular. Love the thing.
This is the first time I've been able to play an LD shaft and pretend it's a solid maple shaft until it's time for those LD shots. I started playing pool in the 80s and got very used to solid maple shafts so it's been a heck of a journey shifting over to LD. This is the first time I can see that happen."
