SL7's can range from barely SL7 to semi pro. SL2's can be decent or barely know one end of the cue from the other.

I break pretty hard and have even cracked the ferrule on my break cue. I use softer ferrules on my play cues and I’m sure I would be replacing those ferrules quite often if I used them to break. I’m...

Soft tips will only be soft for a period of time. All layered tips compress and harden over time. You may want to use a dedicated break cue with a hard tip to delay the Everest tip from compressing...

Sounds like a tip problem since the Elkmaster tip didn’t make the click. As I mentioned above, make sure there is no air gap between the tip and ferrule. I have removed old tips preparing for the new...

From my experience, a cue will make a tink sound when the tip has gaps in the glue surface. Once the tip has been pressed against the ferrule, do not remove; just use the tip to spread the glue...

Trouble is, some LOs weight those 2 nights FAR higher than the other nights where you were off (bad day maybe). These very same POS LOs never look at consistency. So what if you just beat a SL7, they...

Cuetec Cynergy ferrule

Iím curious if anyone has replaced the Cynergy ferrule for a customer. If so, where did you get the new ferrule and how much trouble was it to remove and install. Thanks for any help you can provide.
