i-Pro Shaft

Our most radial consistent shaft ever.

The i-Pro's Octadic Laminated Shaft Construction, combined with its Triple-Layer Carbon Fiber Core, is the most radial consistent shaft we've ever made. This will provide more predictable results, taking your game to a new level. The unique design of this shaft maximizes energy transfer, allowing you to generate a higher spin rate while hitting closer to center cue ball.

Navigator Alpha Tip (Medium)

Navigator Alpha tips feature multiple layers of Japanese pigskin leather that are bonded, then compressed for 3 minutes. This process results in a tip that mushrooms less and provides a firm and crisp hit. The base layers have a different density, allowing them to act like a bumper. This reduces pressure on the tip and helps protect the ferrule.

Taper: Hybrid i-Pro
Shaft Size: 12.5mm
Joint: 3/8"-10 (standard)

i-1 Big Boy Break/Jump Shaft

The i-1 Big Boy is the most powerful shaft in the i-Shaft series. Its special taper, wider shaft diameter and Triple-Layer Carbon Fiber core make it the ideal choice for breaking and jumping with extreme control.

Navigator Break Impact Tip

The Navigator Break Impact is a hybrid phenolic break tip. Most phenolic tips are designed to generate power, but at the cost of cue ball control. The Break Impact tip’s hybrid construction provides tremendous cue ball control without sacrificing power. This makes it ideal for breaking and jump shots.

Taper: Short Break/Jump
Shaft Size: 13.25mm
Joint: 3/8"-10 (standard)

G-Core Shaft

The G-Core is the perfect blend of technology and classic feel. It has the benefits of carbon fiber core technology with the familiar feel of a traditional maple shaft. It comes standard on all McDermott G-Series cues $260-$699.

Navigator Black Tip (Medium)

Navigator Black tips feature multiple layers of Japanese pigskin leather that are assembled using a proprietary adhesive. This prevents oxidation, meaning the tip won’t get harder after short usage. They are most adaptable tips in the Navigator line, allowing players to shape and mold the tip over time to fit their play style.

Taper: Pro
Shaft Size: 13mm
Joint: 3/8"-10 (standard)

Everest Tip (Medium)

Each Everest laminated tip is individually tested for consistency, hardness and quality. It shapes like a hard tip, hits like a medium, but has the control of a soft tip. Everest® tips have 10 layers that include a red warning layer to indicate when it needs replacement.

Stinger Break/Jump Shaft

Stinger technology takes the hit energy to the center of the shaft, regardless of where you hit the tip. Our tip can be shaped flatter than a typical break cue’s tip. The flatter profile causes the Stinger tip to have a huge “sweet spot.” You can mishit and still get the result you intended.

Patented Stinger Phenolic Tip/Ferrule Technology

The tip features a “stinger” stem that projects downward through a hole in the center of the ferrule. On impact, the shock of the hit goes to the center of the tip and down the stinger stem, transmitting the impact directly to the center of the shaft. This results in a very efficient, precise hit.

Taper: Short Break/Jump
Shaft Size: 13.25mm phenolic tip
Joint: 3/8"-10 (standard)

Notice

It is recommended that you send in your cue butt when purchasing a new shaft. This allows us to custom fit your new shaft to your existing cue. Without sending in your cue, we cannot guarantee that the shaft will fit perfectly.
