I think what upsets Maple purists is this, if their buddies get the new tech and it improves their game, then they will feel like they themselves are not maximizing their own potential by also 'upgrading'. So it's easier to bash said new equipment.Yuup. And I don't know why having other "options" so terrify maple shaft users. I got buddies that play with maple (non LD shafts) and it bothers me not one bit. Of course, why would it. But, for some reason, we soon get that regular maple was good enough for Mosconi arguments. well, I'm not fuggin Mosconi lol
4 years ago I went from LD back to Maple and really enjoyed it. I actually started playing better after an adjustment period. But I'm bored so I bought a 12.4 Revo last week for my Joss. I love the way it hits. Put a HOW soft on it. I use Triangles on my standard Joss shaft.
After one hour of trying it I wanted to throw it out the window and burn the pool room down. I can't make a ball. (Not that bad) definitely more energy transfer and point and shoot. My problem is on medium angle cut shots I have no idea where I'm aiming. Guessing adjusting for deflection?? I've always just aimed and pulled the trigger. Never thought about it. But I like the Revo and might keep it.
