Pechauer Rogue Shaft Review ~ by Garret Troop

I have been working with and dealing with Pechauer for years. They have always been super helpful and respectful of my time and my money that is an investment. When you buy a cue or a shaft it’s important to get to know the company that you work with. Pechauer stands by their name and products.

Now with all that being said I had the opportunity to review their new Rogue shaft. With the new Carbon fiber shaft craze I see many companies working to perfect what they feel is the best shaft on the market.

The Rogue shaft was a pleasure to play with and should be on everyone’s bucket list. They kept their Protaper the same from their wooden shaft and the Carbon fiber shafts so it was a transition to get used to the new shaft.

Something that I wanted to mention was that the shaft has a really soft sound. Most carbon fiber shafts have a kind of a tink sound when you hit with them. This shaft has a soft sound and is really pleasant.

The Rogue shaft has a lot less deflection as compared to their wooden counterparts. The shaft was still and responsive to english applied to the cue ball and it maximizes your stroke and allows you to get what you want out of the shot at hand.

I feel that that a lot of people have a difficult transition from Wood to Carbon Fiber. I know that Pechauer put a small weight in the rear section that is proprietary of their Rogue shaft as many companies do. With all that this shaft offers I personally feel that this shaft is a great transition from wood to Carbon Fiber.

A lot of people say that their shaft feels like a wooden shaft. To that I say if you want a wooden shaft then buy a wood shaft. If you want a Carbon Fiber shaft then you should buy one. This shaft is a great transition between the two. The finish on this shaft is proprietary but to my best guess its the same finish that they use on their wooden shaft.
