, A friend dropped his pool cue off that I had not seen for a couple years.

He said that he needed a ferrule and a tip.
It was about nine pm and were are in my driveway.
I took one look at the cue and I said to him, those cues don't hold up, I really tried to say to him that he should get something else.

He looked at me and said Mike I know you are passionate about your pool cues but could you please fix this.
Never been told that before but it shut me up , I said yes I will do my best.

I really don't know how to say this . but none of these cues are holding up in my area.
This guy has his own pool table at home and never takes this cue in his car.

Anyway here is the pics and I am not going to post the brand name.

I would like to say this is the 4th one I have seen do this.

No need to say the name and I'm not surprised one bit. Buy once, cry once. Never again will I buy off the shelf playing cues.

Most of those cues haven't had a chance to make it to the "shelf" yet...they fall apart before they ever get shelved for any length of time.

Their motto is, "Chop a tree, build a cue, hurry up and sell it to YOU!"
