    Cue has developed a rattle

    Hello, A custom cue (wrapless, no points, 3/8x10 pin) in excellent condition was sold to a buyer in Europe. The new owner says it now has a "rattle" when playing with it. Any idea what might be causing this? I have an email in to the cuemaker but would appreciate other opinions. While I know...

    sneaky pete shaft question

    I'm thinking about buying a second shaft for a true sneaky pete cue that has no collar on the butt or shaft (5/16x14 pin). Is it possible (and at what approximate expense) to take a traditional aftermarket shaft with a collar, remove the collar and have it match up well to the butt? Tx for...

    Shaft won't fit on my Scruggs Cue?

    Hello, I recently got a TS 5/16x14 SS jointed cue that came with only one shaft. I've got an extra James White piloted 5/16x14 shaft I'd like to use on the cue but it won't screw on all the way (the recessed collar of the SS joint on the butt won't fit over the piloted portion of the shaft)...

    Slate seal has broken

    Hello, I got a new Olhausen slate table installed less than a year ago. A month or so ago I noticed a slight ridge had formed where two pieces of slate come together (I was told by someone that this means the slate seal has broken or "popped"). You can now see a line on the Simonis860 cloth...

    Playing my best against stronger players;poorly against weaker ones

    I've noticed something in my last two local tournies that I wonder if others have experienced: When I draw a better player than me (I'm probably a B-) in the first round, I tend to play my best pool and have had some wonderful upsets; I then draw a weaker player in the second round and don't...

    Diagnosing "roll" on a cue butt

    If the butt has a slight roll when it's rolled by itself on a level table, does that mean there's definitely a warp? What other diagnostics would you recommend? It doesn't appear to affect a straight hit with the cue. Tx.

    Tough Decision on Custom Shaft

    Hello, I am having a replacement shaft made for my custom cue (both of my other traditional shafts have become quite warped over the past 15 years). I can only afford to have one shaft made and the cue maker has suggested I consider a traditional maple or a flat laminated. I realize this...
