I dont have a Paradise cue.

thanks but thats more work then I want to do.
And I'm afraid I would make it worse with sand paper.
Would a cue maker spin it on a lath and make it shine more?

My $230 Schmelke plays as good as my $1000 Troy Downey.
The Downey has more vibrant woods, much fancier rings and a better finish.
But both play very good.
