Looking for comments from people that have used the perfect shaft product.

Perfect is part wax and part cleaner. I have seen it for the past 2 years at the BCA Nationals. It cleans the shaft then the wax is suppose to close up the pores in the shaft permantly, so that no dirt or grime can get into the cue. Then they claim that only a good buffing is needed to clean your shaft.

Just what we all need -- another vastly overpriced cue specific product... $20.00+... Wow, talk about a bargain.

Can't wait for the wax to become sticky.

I laughed at their motto --
"To make the perfect shot everytime, you need Perfect Shaft".
I wonder how long it will take for that to come true.

Yeah, they also sell tee shirts that say something like this:

WANTA FEEL MY PERFECT SHAFT?

I'd be afraid to wear that in Las Vegas. /ccboard/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

I have Slip Stic in my shaft right now. After a week of use, I still like it.

I have been using it for almost a yr now. It is actually a cleaner, sealer, and then a wax. The sealer is actually a paste that then hardens and requires light sanding to remove, then the wax is applied and burinished. I have never had a customer come back and say they were not happy with the treatment. I am now starting to work with the slip stik product and am getting fairly similar results with much less work on my end.

Not familiar with that product, but waxing does work.

I've used Carnauba wax for years. You just hold a chunk of it against a spinning shaft, or rub it on longintudinally, and then burnish with enough speed and pressure to "melt it in". It seals the pores and keeps them clean, just needs a damp-rag wipedown now and then.

Eventually the chalk and dirt may still accumulate, but when that happens you do a wipedown with 90% isopropyl. This strips away the old wax (and any accumulated crud) and quickly evaporates. You start over again with a fresh waxing. Not unlike what you do with wood floors.

I believe this stuff is the same as Zardoz NoWax for snow boarding we talked about months ago. Same container and all, just different name. ICBW.

No it isn't. I asked the guy selling it in that very question over on AZBilliards. He said they looked at Zardoz, but found that it pitted the wood. He said that he worked with chemists to develop a similar but different formula that would not damage the shaft. He did choose to package it in a similar container because it was available and cheaper than developing his own. I have had it on a couple of my shafts for 2 weeks now it is holding up very well. It makes the shaft very slick and it stays that way with a nightly wipe down with a damp paper towel. Before I would have to clean and burnish my shaft at least once a week in addition to the damp paper towel treatment. I'm curious as to just how long this will last before I have to reapply it.
