Your wushu is weak!
I couldn’t tell you how fancy or not fancy someone else’s cue is/was or the brand. I don’t pay much attention to brands/makers unless one really catches my eye. What I can tell you is 3 of the last 4 players I played had CFSs. That’s it. I have no idea what their butts looked like. I prefer flashy not gaudy personally. But I’m bringing up the carbon fiber because of theft. A thief can spot a $400 shaft from across the room
