I was just wondering what the general consensus is on the subject. I am having a cue made with 3-8x11 and wondering how that is

Investing in a custom without trying as many cues as possible with different joints, ferrules, weights, wraps, etc etc etc.

IMO would say an ivory joint probably plays the best out of all of them.

Ahh shucks, I was thinking that last time I was in Amsterdam they said the White Widow was the best joint but I see I was mistaken as to the topic of the post.

I think this would be a good survey question?

I have tried just about every CUE joint out there and I think building the cue around the joint is not the best way to go. I think it is best to play with as many different cues you can try out and then pick the whole product. When I ordered my custom from Judd I just asked about the different woods, how they would affect playability and weight and then I let Judd build me a Judd cue. Judd told me the woods I picked would end up in the 19oz range and PLAY LIKE A JUDD and that was fine with me.

My A level playing Judd loving friend asked me if I had specified a taper, joint, etc and I said no. I picked a design and length and told Judd to do his magic and my friend thought about it and said, THAT WAS A GREAT IDEA.

That. is basically what I did. My cue maker just told me tonight what he was doin so I came to Az for input. Thank you
