Well, I've had the new shaft for a couple of days, and it is
different. I don't see all that much difference in squirt, but I was
using a 12.3MM and this one is 11MM. I'll take some pictures and put
them up so you can see the tips on the 3 shafts for this cue. I seem
to miscue a little more often, but that may be due to getting further
out on the cueball. Right now I like the old shaft better, but it
takes some time to retrain my eye to aim with the smaller shaft, at
least that's my excuse. Close shots are not a problem, but table
length shots are (could be less squirt?). I'll do an aim & pivot test
on the 3 shafts and see what the difference is. Well, I'm off to the
table to experiment.

Here is a link to the pictures of the new shaft and the old ones. I'm
still testing to see if I like it or not. Right now I'm more
comfortable with the 12.3mm shaft, but they are different enough that
it may just take a while.
