“What makes the XLR8 shaft better than all the other CF shafts on the market?”. The XLR8 carbon fiber pool cue shaft is built to order per each customer’s preferences. Besides the extremely reasonable price, my shaft is made for you!!! I have an awesome response to the launch, and an even better feedback from customers who love the feel and hit of the shaft! This is a labor of love, I’ll never get rich doing this, but much like my career as a paramedic - I have found a job that allows me to help people. In this case, my fellow pool players can get the benefits of CF shafts without the high cost!
