DEFY from McDermott.

It also features a new ferrule material for enhanced durability.
DEFY HIGH-PERFORMANCE CARBON FIBER SHAFT
Introducing Defy — a shaft that defies the stereotype of carbon fiber shafts. Defy gives you the unparalleled accuracy and control that you expect from carbon fiber, but uses state-of-the-art technologies to shatter its limitations. SmacWrap, originally designed for the aerospace industry, absorbs vibration and dampens noise resulting in a confident hit with a soft feel and quiet sound. Our super-smooth coating reduces friction, allowing the shaft to glide through your fingers with ease like a wood shaft. Only Defy’s insane energy transfer and accuracy will remind you that you’re using a carbon fiber shaft. Patent: 11,534,676
Defy carbon fiber shafts have a special finish that contains a slip agent. This helps keep the shaft slick and resists chalk, dirt, and hand oils from soiling the shaft. For peak performance, you may periodically clean the shaft by wiping it down with an alcohol wipe. Our Silky Smooth Hand Spray also works great with the Defy shaft. Apply spray to your bridge hand and rub briskly until dry for a friction-free stroke.
Never sand the surface as this will damage the special finish and void the lifetime warranty. Do not use talcum powder, baby powder, hand chalk, or any solid or liquid abrasives.
Defy Shaft Tip Replacement: Defy carbon fiber shafts are equipped with a 0.125″ ferrule. Because the shaft cannot be sanded, special care should be taken when replacing the tip. We recommend sending the shaft to McDermott Cue for proper tip replacement or use a service professional that has experience replacing tips on carbon fiber shafts.
