I would like to thank OB Cues for standing behind their product, honoring their warranty and for doing a great job on my OB1 shaft ferrule repair. After I got in touch with them, they responded very quickly with simple to follow instructions. They even put the same tip (a Kamui tip which isn't cheap) on it that I had prior to the ferrule cracking. After I opened the return package I was also very pleased to see that the shaft had also been cleaned and it looked like new. The other fantastic thing was the speed of the entire process from start to finish. In total, from the time I sent it to the time I got it back, was under 3 weeks. I should mention that I live in Canada as well. I don't think I will ever have another brand of cue!

Great job and great service!

I have been Playing APA pool for the past 4 years but have always played a little pool here and there growing up. When I started out playing pool I bought a used custom cue with a standard shaft and I knocked it around for 3 years trying others peoples cues along the way trying to figure out what would work best for me. I went from 2-3 skill level to a strong 4. With a good understanding of what I needed I wanted a well balanced cue with a Low Deflection shaft to take my game to the next level.I did my homework and I bought the OB-129 at 18 oz with the OB Pro + at 11.75 and I have been amazed ever since. This OB cue has taken my APA game to a skill level 5 and just recently it helped me with the APA Scotch doubles tournament qualifying me to play in Vegas this year. Thank you for such a great looking and great playing cue.

Good morning and happy holidays ! I just want to get in touch with you and your company about my recent Christmas present! My OB+ pro 30inch with moori hard tip 5/16x18 piloted! I am thoroughly impressed, and truly grateful that your company takes such care in cue making. I feel like this shaft compliments every aspect of my shooting ability. I will be HIGHLY RECOMMENDING your products.- I can't express how perfect this product is and how it being an American made product means too.

To whom it may concern: Just wanted to let someone know I purchased and received your Lions Claw cue and I could NOT be happier with your product!  Excellent craftsmanship and design.  Keep up the wonderful work that you do and I will be purchasing more products in the near future. Thanks for taking the time to read this note.

Hello, I had to email you to let you know what I think about the Rift I just bought. I got it with the speed shaft btw. I think you should stop selling them right now!! Pull them all from the stores, take it off your website and never speak of it again!! This cue breaks so ridiculously good, I don’t want anyone else to know about it!! I don’t know what magical spell you have placed on this break cue, but I do not think its possible to have a bad break with it! I have only had it a few short hours, but I am in complete awe! I have had more break and run opportunities with this cue, in the last couple hours then I have had in months! Oh look 3 solids on the break, perfect spread and nothing is tied up...again! I think I had one dry break with it so far...but I spread the balls completely every single time! Finding a review on this break cue is pretty much impossible, I now know why! No one wants to give up the secret! You deserve a standing ovation for this cue, its almost cheating it breaks so well. Its like having Shane Van Boening as your designated breaker! I pray the BK3 fanatics don’t find this stick, so I can keep the advantage! Fantastic work OB!! AMAZING cue! Breaking PERFECTED!

I have never emailed feedback on a break cue in my life. I have tried every break cue on the market. Production and custom break cues. Predator, Mezz, Tiger, Gilbert custom jump break. You name it I probably owned it at one time or another. Most of them pretty expensive. I don't know why I never tried the OB break cue before. Maybe it's because someone once mentioned it had a softer hit. I even bought into Predator BK3 hype. Of course the predator bk3 shaft and butt warped so I purchased an OB break shaft for the bk3 butt. The shaft did have a softer hit but I noticed much better feel and control. As I learned to use different break speeds, the shaft yielded noticeable results as opposed to all the other break cues I have ever owned. I was so impressed that I had to know how the whole OB Break cue setup was like so I went and purchased one last week. You guys have a put out a great product. I am kicking myself for taking so long to try your break cue. I wasted so much time and money. The OB beak cue is priced competitively and outperforms anything I have ever owned. On the AZ Billiards forums, I see how you guys respond to customer concerns and take care of things even when the nature of the concern is not expressed or implied in your warranty. Great job guy's. You have a customer for life in me.

I have been shooting pool going on 30 years now. I stopped for about 5 years and recently got back into it. I always used predator shafts ......until recently. I went to Jacksonville Florida to try and get a new Predator Z shaft and the place was out of them. He had some OB Classic pros and said try it. I did and ended up buying 2 of them. I now ONLY play with my OB and my Z shaft is collecting dust. Just wanted to say great product. I am a convert and very pleased!

Hello OB, I just purchased one of your OB-1 cue shafts from Seyberts Billiards. My motivation for purchasing this shaft was Alex Pagulayan. I have watched him play for some time and thought if the shaft is good enough for him it is certainly good enough for me. I am a senior player (71) I play with an original Rambow cue I purchased from Herman Rambow himself. I payed $47 for it in 1965. I have only used a Rambow shaft on my cue. Recently I have been thinking my game might improve a bit using a more hi tech shaft. BOY WAS I RIGHT! In the short time since I have owned your shaft it has helped my game tremendously. I can't say enough about the workmanship and precision that you put into this OB-1. That alone inspires confidence. But the real proof is in the shooting. There is no doubt I am a much better player when I use a much better shaft ..(sorry Herman). I will continue to improve and enjoy this great shaft for a long time. Thanks OB.

"I've been using Predator cues exclusively since 2005. I went to my local billiard shop to have my tip reshaped and decided to try one of the OB cues (sneaky pete) to see what everyone was talking about. OMG! That cue was awesome!! So awesome in fact, that I purchased the OB-122 from Seybert's Billiards and received it yesterday afternoon. I couldn't wait to try it out! I played for two hours and loved every minute. I played some of my best pool! The hit and feel of the OB-1 shaft is amazing! The whole cue has a very solid, balanced feel. A GREAT PRODUCT! You guys keep makin' 'em like this and you've got a customer for life!"

"I've been playing with OB cues and shafts for around two years now.  When I first hit with the OB Classic Pro shaft, I loved it and knew I could get used to it.  The OB Classic Pro has feedback somewhere between the OB-2 and a standard maple shaft.  This gives it the best of both worlds when you consider the super-low deflection.  The high quality products paired with the absolute top-notch customer service make me proud to own OB Cues products."

Zack N., Newport News, Virgina


"I have used an OB1 before but as soon as I hit with the OB Classic Pro I knew this was 'the one' I had been waiting for. I put a Kamui Med tip on it and it has now become my 'magic wand', not just for pool, but because of it's slim design, smaller tip diameter, and low deflection, it's great for SNOOKER too!! A multi-faceted shaft in EVERY way!"

Phil C., Freehold, New Jersey


"I don't own an OB cue (yet), but recently borrowed my APA team member's OB cue for our league match when I didn't have my cue with me. I not only loved the cue but I won the match. I  now have my current cue for sale and am planning to buy an OB-125 with an OB-1 shaft very soon."

Steve S., Cupertino, California


"OB-2 Shaft on a Samsara cue is one of the best hitting shaft and butt combination.  The hit has good feedback so I can tell if I delivered a good crisp hit on the cue ball or if I stroke poorly or slightly miscue.  The low deflection helps you shoot straighter and more accurately for those times I need to really spin the cue ball into position.  I definitely recommend everyone try the OB-1 or OB-2 shafts to help take their game to the next level."

Richard W., Atlanta, Georgia


"I use OB Classic shafts on two different cues. The shaft allowed me to make shots using english with out having to worry about cue ball deflection. The cue ball follows a more 'natural' pattern making it easier to aim. Also with so many collar choices I'm able to buy a shaft to match any cue I'm currently using, so every cue hits as good as the last."

Anthony R., Columbus, Ohio


"A few years back a friend of mine had recommended trying a low-deflection shaft just for comparison. While I was skeptical that a shaft change would help my game, I picked up an original OB-1 cue shaft, mostly based on its looks, and the fact that no players in my area were using them yet. It was probably the single best decision I have ever made for my game. Along with the exceptional feel, I found the increased accuracy on thin cuts to be a big advantage. Also, the ease of pocketing balls with heavy english added a huge boost of confidence to my approach, and I found myself getting out on tough racks more and more. It has been three years, and more than a few new tips, but that same OB shaft is still helping me to play my best. Thanks OB Cues!"

Adam B., Toronto, Ontario


"I have and still use ob shafts on every cue that I own. These shafts have a nice firm hit without the annoying ping sound of other comparable shafts. I also take a great deal of pleasure in knowing where I aim is where the ball is going. I have purchased other low deflection shafts but none have held up like my ob's. I have two ob classic shafts and one extra ob schon shaft and I can say from my personal experience that they also have a uniform hit across the board. It doesn't matter which cue in my collection I choose to shoot with all I have to do is use one of my ob's and it always feels the same, solid and true. Since switching to ob shafts a few years ago I am now a customer for life."

Jeff S., North East, Maryland


"I purchased an OB break shaft a few years ago to try one out. I was very happy with the construction and performance of the shaft. The taper felt comfortable in my hands, but still stiff enough to deliver consistent power on the break. The low deflection quality allowed for forgiveness with minor misses, still smashing through the sweet spot of the rack; it became very easy to control the cue ball. I fell in love with the Samsara tip's mix of control and power, and have been using it exclusively for breaking and jumping ever since. Overall, I was very pleased with the OB break shaft and would not hesitate to purchase additional products from OB Cues. I hope to try the OB Classic shaft in the very near future."

Brandon C., Lexington, Kentucky


"I have played with Predators, Tigers, and tried many other low deflecting shafts but am sticking with the OB Classic for the benefit of having a consistent hit with excellent feedback in the sound and it's ability to move balls on the table. The OB Classic shaft I have is 12.5mm and it feels just right in the hand with OB's taper and produces excellent results when I need a feather touch, or if I'm juicing the ball to force an angle."

Dennis F., Vancouver, British Columbia


"I met a few of your crew members at the SBE. I recently tried out one your OB classic pro shaft on one of my custom cues and I love it. It immediately showed me I was not hitting center cue ball, when I thought I was, all along. I caught on quickly, adjusted and currently playing the best pool I ever played in my life. The shaft allows me to put as little or as much “stuff” on the cue ball as I need but it plays so well, I find I really don’t get out of shape that much to have to rely on the awesome spin it puts on the ball. It is nice to know it is there, if needed. I plan on outfitting all my custom cues with these shafts. I live just south of Baltimore and good friends with Rick Phillippi, who does the custom joint/ring work on the shafts. I also have your OB-1 shafts matched to a few of my cues. The classic pro is the real deal and y’all have a real winner with this shaft!"
