Being 6'5"I feel that a normal standard cue is too short for my frame.Any comments or thoughts about longer shafts or cues?Would it be advantageous for me to look into a custom longer 60 or 62" cue?thx,later,dennis:D

33 mm butt diameter
10 mm tip diameter
conical taper
no wrap
fiber pad ferrule
design it so you can adjust the weight to what works best

Absolutely Dennis! My DP cue is standard, 58", but I also have a Sailor cue that I had made about 12 years ago that is 60". It really helped me with my stroke on longer table shots. I'm not as tall as you, but the Sailor fits me perfectly at 60", so I'd have to agree with Skeezicks and say at least a 62" would be better for you. You want to get one made that size though, do not just have a longer shaft made for your cue or it will throw the balance off. Good luck>
