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.

My Defy Upgrade

After researching and trying out Friends Carbon Fiber Shafts I decided to order the Defy Blind , and wasn't disappointed. I've shot 1 League match (won) and many pickups in the last week, not to mention I have a Table .. So far I'm happy with my 8th McDermott ! Everyone I know who has purchased a Carbon Fiber Shaft think they are ALL over Priced but sometimes you need to take the Leap !

Great Shaft

Since I have a lot of friends in APA with them I had the opportunity to try almost every carbon fiber shaft out there and found the McDermott Defy to be the one I liked the best. I am really happy with the Hybrid taper, feels great with both an open or closed bridge. I definitely feel like there is more power being transferred to the ball which allowed me to slow down each stroke just a bit, and I love the solid sound at impact. I can really notice the reduced deflection when adding spin to the cue ball. It did take me a couple weeks of playing to get used to not adjusting aim as much for deflection. Most of all I love the face that it is a McDermott! I have been playing McDermott cues for over 20 years and just love their products and customer service.
