Born May 26th, 1986, Abram Diaz began playing pool in November of 2007. Less than three years later he became a world ranked artistic pool player. Diaz said, "All you have to do is know what you want and work hard for it, and if you want it bad enough you'll get it."

Words from Diaz about McDermott: "I've been shooting with the Mcdermott i-2 shaft since 2008 after seeing Tom Rossman do some amazing shots with his i-Shaft. I figured I would give it a shot. No other aftermarket shaft delivers a more consistant hit than the Mcdermott i-2 and i-3 shafts. I tour with the best trickshot artists in the world and the shots we shoot in competition require maximum power, maximum spin, and a lot of finess. The McDermott i-Shaft series delivers all of this and much more. Since I made the purchase of my McDermott i-2 shaft, my game has been elevated to a new level."
