    What is the usual finished

    dimension of the joint end as well as the finished dimension of the butt end of the cues that some of you build? I understand that wood type is going to play a big part of the final weight as to how it affects the total weight of the cue. Do any of you use the smaller dimeter as some type of...

    Are they not totally obsolete, having been away for some 30 plus years I did not keep up with what has gone to China in a hand basket, or is there something close in manufacturing that resembles what was once a great in my opinion cue to make sneakies out of. Having gone back to bring myself up...
