I also contacted Pechauer for the joint type on my cue and they answered

"Our joint is our own speed joint. The threads start out as normal 5/16 x 14, but then expand out to a larger shoulder."

in case that helps anyone!

Let us know how a non Pechauer shaft fits on that pin.
And good luck with that.

I had a Pechauer and called them to see what other shafts will fit that speed joint.
The arrogant person laughed and said you have to buy an extra shaft from us only.
No,no i dont I sold the cue.

Its a half threaded 5/16 14 pin. To make a non Pechauer shaft work on a Pechauer, all you need to do is to bore out the shaft insert to the major diameter of the pin, however deep it is (cant remember at this moment and dont have one in front of me to measure, something like 3/8-1/2" or so).

Any reputable cue repair person can accomplish this in 5 minutes or so.

Based on personal experience I think you might refer to a rude reseller since every time I contacted them they were very polite, quick to reply and prompted me to other shops which could supply me with shafts.

The older Pechauers had fully threaded pins. If you are referring to a Pechauer with the speed pin, then yes, most aftermarket shaft makers do currently make shafts that will fit it. The 314-3 shafts that I use on my Joss were made for Pechauer cues. I personally like the quick release aspect (as only the back half of the shaft inserts are threaded), and the dashed ringwork is close enough for me.

The speed joint needs an insert that has the opening bored out to accept the unthreaded portion of their speed joint pin.

Nope, those will not work without the female cap (that goes on the butt of the cue) being bored out like I mentioned for the shafts above.

These are the correct ones, but they are more expensive.

If you have a drill press or even a hand drill and a vise, modifying the cheaper caps you linked in your post, is not difficult.
  • Use a 5/16 drill bit (or 8mm if you are across the pond)
  • Measure the length of the unthreaded portion of the pin, and use a piece of masking tape etc to mark your drill bit as your depth gauge.
  • Proceed to drill the threads to depth. (better to stop short, you can always drill a little deeper if need be)
  • Check the fit of the cap on the cue and drill deeper if need be

Thanks, I will try your modification. With the male cap of the shaft there will be no problem?

The only thing I can see being a potential problem is if the threaded stem that goes into the shaft were too short to catch the threads.

That's good information. I just bought my 3rd Pechauer Pro...this one from the mid nineties that does not have the speed joint. They have always been very prompt in my email questions and when I have called them. I love the way the cues play compared to other cues I have tried. I hope you are happy with your choice.

What about the jacoby hybrid shaft? I am still getting used to the cue but so far it hits real nice and deflection seems very low. Still need play time on it though its pretty new.
I used an R360 before this and its a suprisingly good hitting cue/shaft. If costs was an issue id start there.
