You asked for ‘em so we’ve got ‘em. We just got in our first shipment of the new OB-2 low deflection shafts. We wanted to let you know about some of the differences between the original OB-1 shaft and the new shafts, so we went to the source. According to OB Cues, the biggest difference can be found in the tip size, the ferrule and the taper. The new OB-2 shafts feature an 11.75mm tip, a combination pro/conical taper and a shorter 1/2″ ferrule.
In addition to these core changes, the OB-2 also features a smaller version of the OB-1′s dampening core and the trademark SR-6 construction for optimal consistency.
