They don’t have to play with a carbon fiber shaft lol In facts Robinson was playing with a z shaft.
Don’t listen to the old I hate everything new people on here . Try one out. Maybe it suits your style of play and you’ll feel more confident and play better. It‘s so funny on here how everyone has to scream if you don’t have a stroke it doesn’t matter everytime someone brings up a cf shaft lol Like we don’t know that. They just dropped some profound information on us.
I am an oldtimer (67) and long, long time player who plays mostly with higher end custom cues- only with the maple wood shafts that came with the cues. I am certainly not opposed to anything new in sports technology and I don't think that most here are opposed to the new stuff.
However, I think many of us hear the REASONs why some folks say they want to buy the new technology that we find rather amusing. So in today's post someone watches seasoned pros play very well with new stuff and compares that to some other pros in one tournament with older stuff and vocalizes a desire now to go out and buy into new technology.
I think what brings out the "arrow vs. archer" quotes again is that it most of these " where do I get the best CF shaft" posters maybe should just say what you said- " I want to feel more confident and play better" and perhaps they should add " right now I don't feel confident and I can't find the reason why- so maybe I will try some new equipment - something like I just saw a great player use"
What most of us "arrow vs. Archer" folks think about how , perhaps dillusional this idea really is really should not matter- folks will always reach for a magic bullet- if it ends up making them FEEL better about their game- then no harm done, if they actually perform better with the stuff - great! Holding on to tradition should not be condemned and neither should those who want to reach for the latest and greatest- both have their place!
