Unlike “Pie piece” laminated shafts, our shaft is made up from six “stress relieved” segments. Each of these segments is made from straight grained laminated maple and machined in a manner that removes the internal stress to help insure the shaft is straight and stable. These six segments are then assembled into the shaft “blank” that is the start of the OB-1.

Radial Uniformity
Due to the unique construction of the “blank” for the OB-1, the shaft has extremely consistent stiffness no matter how you rotate it. Any Flat Laminated shaft is always stiffer in one direction than the other depending on how it is rotated. What this means for you is that you don’t need to rotate the cue to put a mark on the top before you shoot.

The taper on the OB-1 is longer than most cues. In a normal shaft, this leads to inconsistent cue ball control. Due to the stiffness of the unique construction of the OB-1, there is no whippy or inconsistent feel. Actually, the longer taper combined with this stiffness gives you the benefit of increased cue ball spin when you need it.

By far the most common comment we get when someone hits with the OB-1 is how good it feels. Good performance and good feel are no longer mutually exclusive. With the OB-1, you get the performance of low deflection combined with a shaft that feels like a real shaft should feel. Part of that comes from the fact that our shaft is not hollow on the end. The final 4 inches of our shaft is all wood, including the ferrule. The other part of it comes from the use of a high density, vibration dampening foam in the core of the shaft.

You haven’t felt “solid” until you have hit with the OB-1 cue shaft.

    • I have used OB shafts for the last 2 years, and love the feel. The standard tips however are a bit on the soft side.
