This seems to be an endless debate, this discussion wood vs carbon. Do you guys really think it matters. Deflection is deflection no mater what type of shaft your into. It's just varying amounts.
Just watch dr dave lastest video on it.
If you are prepared to, put the work in. It won't matter. I just think it's a bit crazy, that anyone willing to spend over 400 on a shaft. And not even knowing, if that's going to improve your game.you would be better off, spending that,on some coaching lessons.
when predator first came out 20 plus years ago. Alot of the big players of the time, just stayed with there own traditional shafts. Just to name a few reyes, bustamante, archer, yang, doulton, luat
It was always the younger players that used that brand.
Even watching the last tournament, the men and women using the zen cues. There's Look very traditional It doesn't seem to affect them.
Even through the cue market, is full of the latest LD and Carbon shafts, its refreshing to see, some players don't feel the need to believe the hype..
