Sorry to not have gotten back to you earlier.
I have improved quiet a bit in the last year or so, but, since i am also in dallas, would like for play on a 10 footer with you sometime, You can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The butt of the cue is threaded but not sure if theres a weight in it. I had a diveney and the weight bolt was way up in the butt of the cue. I can't see one but I don't have a allen wrench long enough to get up in there either. I'm getting married very soon and trying to consolidate my inventory. This cue is like I said in new cond. I take very good care of my cue's. I don't have allot of money so when I buy something I take great care of it. You'll have to think about it and shoot me a deal. Thanks for the reply.. Scott
