I just got to try one today. Played ok but the finish is HORRIBLE. It has a finish that reminded me of the old Cuetec glass coated shafts. I don't see how you could use one without a glove. Very sticky thru your bridge. Compared to all the other cf shafts i've tried it easily comes in last place. If McD would fix the finish they'd have a good product. As is i'd never consider buying one.
