Engage has been designed to offer the players a pure full carbon experience, starting from the taper, passing through the sound, and arriving at its surface finish. It was born with these objectives, and after years of research and development, starting from the already excellent Prime M and using our experience in the composite fiber world, we managed to get what we wanted. The Engage shaft is made entirely of unidirectional carbon fiber, with several suitably sized and oriented layers coupled together to enhance as much as possible the positive characteristics of carbon in relation to the game of billiards. The lamination used, combined with the 14” pro taper and the famous patented front-end technology AURORA, offers very great rigidity and a great reaction speed to external mechanical stresses while remaining very light. This results in extremelylow deflection, extreme accuracy, the ability to transfer great effect to the cue ball even at low speeds, and great control. In order to enhance the material as much as possible, we opted for light soundproofing, preserving the acute, metallic, and almost harmonic notes of the carbon fiber, and dampening and rounding off those that are too high, jagged, and annoying.
Pure carbon is also for the finish, made pleasant to the touch, clean, and smooth thanks to careful work of sanding and polishing that makes the perceived comfort on the fingers last over time without the need for great maintenance. The brand-new Engage shaft is not proposed as an evolution of the Prime, but as its alternative. It offers completely different features, more technical, more aggressive, designed and built not to be a copy of something else, but to be the highest expression of carbon fiber in cue sports according to Becue’s interpretation.
