Nothing good for the players really, manufacturers can use cheaper less select wood for shafts.

There is a somewhat bonus that the flexibility of the shaft is more even no matter which way you rotate it, but I don't think that matters that much.

Tell us more about the cheaper woods and seasoning process please sir. You seem to be an authority on this subject, so please enlighten us with your wealth of knowledge.


It's all about perception.

Please cease and desist. Don't you know I have exclusive rights to pissy sarcastic and mildly passive-aggressive posts?

I don't think the woods are cheap in LD shafts. Of course you may get a bad one here
and there but generally I find the wood fine. I've got a couple of the original
Predator shafts and the wood is fantastic and pretty dark.
I've seen many standard Maple shafts that were horrible. Actually I've seen more
crappy maple shafts then LD shafts.
There's only a handful of cuemakers that have extraordinary shaftwood.

Here is a recent thread on low deflection shafts, and answers from a major manufacturer why his LD shafts are laminated.
