New Shafts Wanted - 06-23-2017, 12:36 PM

Hi Guys,

I have a very nice Tim Scruggs but want to get some new shafts made for it.

Who would you recommend??

Who makes a solid shaft

No LD

Thanks for your help in advance.

I would say comfortable and solid. Nice taper. Not too stiff. I acquired a Sly with 4 shafts (1 LD) and they all hit nice. I found out 2 were originally purchased and the compression on the joint is super tight. The others were made after without the butt in hand and made less tight.

I thought I heard that he has some of Tim Scruggs equipment. If true, his shafts should be similar in taper.

What about Bob Frey , he did work with Tim and he is a authorized to repair and refinish Scruggs cues . I would think he could make shafts real close to what the cue cane with .

Why not Bob Owen? Seems you know the hit of his stuff. Just an idea.

Pete Tascarella make one heck of a shaft. Gilbert makes a solid shaft, Bob Runde makes great stuff. I would default to Frey due to the fact that he is the one authorized to work on Scruggs cues. Hard to go wrong with any of the listed makers.
