New: Players' popular PHX top now in the smaller diameter skinny version on the ferrule (11.75mm). The shaft fits almost all Players models (with joint 5 / 16-18) and also other common cue models, for example from Joss, McDermott etc. (with joint 5 / 16-14).
With the LD shafts from Players you now manage to get into the game with Low-Deflection shafts. LD shafts are usually hollow or filled with foam at the top. The Effect: In the effet game, the cue ball pushes less to the side (the so-called "throw" effect) and the aiming becomes easier. The shafts offered here all have a 11,75mm diameter with a 1 inch ferrule. Choose the right joint for you.
Please note that there is a groove on the joints of the 5 / 16-14 and 5 / 16-18 joint (see photo). The butt of your cue must have a corresponding cutout on the joint, so that the shaft fits.
Comparable LD shafts from other manufacturers cost at least 50% more. With the Players PHX shafts you save money with the same performance:
- North American Grade A Maple
- drastically reduced deviation thanks to lightweight polymer core
- The shafts come with a Kamui Blacksoft tip
- lifetime player warranty, even against warping
