Tiger Carom-X LD® Low Deflection Shafts are specially made for models used by Adams, Hanbat & Longoni cues that use wood to wood joint. One of the advantages of using this shaft is in the joint technology. By using phenolic and a specific custom made Tiger precision fitting construction, we give you a better feel and balance, by eliminating unnecassary vibration and adding solid hit and more power. Add the 5X patented Tiger lamination technology and new balance and flex control system and you got the lowest deflection Carom shaft ever. When you play with this shaft, you will get more spin, gain more accuracy and have total control. Phenolic will outlast the wood joint at least 70% longer and still give you the wood to wood feel. Don’t settle for less when you can have the best.
