So, for 500$-600$ what grade of shaft do i got? it's already grade A or i have to add some dollar?
Think I am full of it? .
I was doing this back in 2002 and 2003. I dont believe OB was even out yet! Any ways, A bunch of the players, and I mean a bunch of the players on the Modesto BCA League and Modesto Tavern League have seen and used these wood ferrules way before OB was out. Any ways if you go on to my youtube sight you will see wooden ferrules like you have never seen before.
Personally, I don't particularly appreciate opening a poll thread in the main forum only to find I've been suckered in to a sales pitch. I also get a kick out of you being new here and jumping on some highly respected members of this board.
Do all of us a favor and keep your sales pitches in the For Sale forum. Oh, and buy a Club Membership. Since the only reason you are here is to move product it is the least you can do.
I can't see this bringing in too many customers. This audience is usually more educated than your average local pool-playing population. The claimed idea/intent is great, but the absolute best way to a pool-player's heart is through test-hitting. Reserve one of your cues to be sent out to a few of the more well-respected forum members (like Scott Lee) and let them post reviews (or have them send you their reviews and post the collection of reviews in one big review post when the cue gets back). That way you're establishing a reputation quickly (which obviously appeals to you) and respectfully.
The way you're doing it now, I can't see you succeeding on these boards. Again, I like the claimed idea/intent of super-low deflection and a sweet hit, but that's why I own an OB Classic Pro. It has a sweet hit and fairly low deflection. If I remember right, I saw a couple reviews from respected forum members (like TATE) before Royce released the shafts for retail. He let his products and testers speak for themselves.
Bad Physics and poor marketing approach. A little creative license people can life with...your approach is over the top and is loaded with suspect science. Your producing a LD shaft by bringing down end mass. The balance is fluff.
Your marketing campaign masked as a poll was painful enough. Though I find it personally distasteful do it the way the other do.

Despite what others say...their is such a thing as bad press.
