DEFY, the new High-Performance Carbon Fiber Shaft From McDermott Cues "Defies" the stereotype of carbon fiber shafts on the market today. Featuring Unequalled accuracy and control that cannot be matched, the new McDermott Defy shaft, with the use of state-of-the-art technologies breaks through other carbon fiber shafts' limitations. Introducing SmacWrap, originally designed for the aerospace industry reduces the vibration and dampens the noise providing a much softer feel and a quiet hit not provided by other carbon fiber shafts. A super-smooth coating allows the shaft to slide through your bridge hand easily mimicking the feel of a wood shaft. Let Defy's insane energy transfer and unparalleled accuracy will remind you that you're using a carbon fiber shaft. Each Defy shaft comes standard with a Navigator soft automatic tip and is available in 12mm, 12.5mm, and 13mm shaft diameters.
