What I may try if I was choosing a shaft is put a chalk mark in the middle of the table, and run the cb one rail or straight to the spot and get a feel for the shaft that you have the most cb control with, and I bet that will be the best one for you.

I started using the Revo 12.4 only a month or two before last years MOT. I fell in love with the shaft fight away. Itís so smooth, predictable, and wonít warp.

As for squirt, itís not any better than my 314-3. The Revo does have a little ting to it but it doesnít bother me.

I think as someone said it's just getting used to one more than anything. I like mine have you tried a Carbon Fiber or just a wood low deflection?

Maybe I'm too old to change and that's probably the case but I'm sticking to what I learned to play with.
I have no idea what your talking about. Everyone I talk to says the Revo spins the ball more than a wood shaft. Seems that way to me also. Your results may vary

I Played with a Revo for a month. I felt the shaft generated more RPMís than my regular Mezz shaft.

That's why I got a Revo. It spins/draws the ball really easy. You wouldn't believe how low on the ball you can hit without miscues...I'm interested in seeing what the Jacoby does. Its said to have a wood core... I'll have my Revo in Memphis if anybody cares to hit some balls with it to try one out.
The major draw back of course is the price.

I'm not a Revo fan but yes it spins the rock well. What it doesn't do on is push the ball out as wide before spinning back and thus people feels it spins more. If it does spin more I would suggest the delta is small.
