Defy carbon fiber shafts have a special finish that contains a slip agent. This helps keep the shaft slick and resists chalk, dirt, and hand oils from soiling the shaft. For peak performance, you may periodically clean the shaft by wiping it down using only water on a lightly damp soft cloth. After the shaft is dry, apply Ultra-Glide Shaft Conditioner with a dry soft cloth to restore the smooth and slick condition.

As you continue to use the shaft; stroke friction will naturally burnish the shaft, resulting in a visibly smoother appearance. Never sand the surface as this will damage the special finish and void the lifetime warranty. Do not use talcum powder, baby powder, hand chalk, or any solid or liquid abrasives.

Defy Shaft Tip Replacement: Defy carbon fiber shafts are equipped with a 0.125" black ferrule. Because the shaft cannot be sanded, special care should be taken when replacing the tip. We recommend sending the shaft to McDermott Cue for proper tip replacement or use a service professional that has experience replacing tips on carbon fiber shafts.

"McDermott 5/16 x 18 Defy Carbon Fiber Cue Shaft"


The shaft is great. I am a big fan of the ferrule-less look that the black ferrule gives, but I don't subscribe to the concept that a white ferrule allows for better aiming. The hit is solid, but a little muted if you prefer more feedback that something like a REVO would give. I cannot comment on the tip as I had it swapped for a Sniper.

Most importantly, the most impressive part of this is Seyberts responsiveness. In the middle of a global pandemic, with a tip change, from the time I placed my order (9am Wednesday) to delivery (1:30pm) Thursday was shorter than if Amazon was delivering it. Customer service even reached out and made sure everything was perfect.

Thanks a ton all.

At 3:09 pm on Tuesday I recived a txt from my girlfriend with the great news that it had came in. I rushed over there to pick it up and found an absolutely perfect condition 314 shaft in the mailing tube! how awesome..."
