Do what works for YOU!
I actually feel the opposite.I can see why pros use carbon. They hit more balls in a couple days than I do all month long.
But For the average player, Carbon is pretty worthless. 75$ wood shafts feel better imo. Stop dropping your cue or slapping the table when u miss and wood won't get nicked up
Carbon fiber shafts are made for bar leagues players BECAUSE they are so indestructible/low maintenence.
Pros take better care of their equipment--- wood is fine for them.
In fact, most of the bar bangers that I know that use carbon admit they don't improve their game, but they like the easy maintenence/no dings/slickness, etc aspect.
