    tip technology - hardness at center different from hardness at edges

    I've seen this in some new designed tips for example TOAM fusion and ZAN. Probably some more have designed such tips where the companies states that the tip is engineered to have softer edges and in the middle they are a bit harder. They claim that the design of harder center gives more power...

    Navigator tip many choices (black, alpha, automatic)

    I’ve looked online and didn’t find anyone speaking of these many choices. Also each of these got SS then soft then medium then hard. In a sense you have 12 choices. But as a main category how different do they play and is there one catagory better than the other? I’ve tried the alpha soft which...

    Cloth 860 vs 920?

    I’ve been playing with 920 and today is the time to change the cloth. The guy who installed the cloth told me that 860 is better and more thicker and I don’t doubt that. But he also said that all championships are played on 860 by the pros. Is the true? I tried it and it seems really slow and...

    linen wrap - change its feel? can I do it as non-cuemaker.

    I know linen wrap feels different from one cue to another because I got two identical cues with two linen wraps, however one feels really smooth and soft while the other one feels really rough and you kinda feel the threads coming out a bit. I know that cue makers will ask you if you want it to...

    What's the point in having a wrap, lizard, linen, luxe wrap from predator IF XYZ

    Just entertaining a though here, I've seen many pro's do this and I want to wrap my head around it.

    I'm surprised I can't find any Revo 11.8 review on youtube or comparison.

    Prior to the release of Revo 11.8 there was alot of hype and people keep nagging predator for a release date. Now that it's out for sometime, I'd like to watch a review on YouTube in a video rather than text. So I searched and was surprised that there is zero legitimate review from a customer...

    Konrad Juszczyszyn, An amazing player.

    Yesterday I was watching these ghosts challenges online where pro's play at their home with cameras, and I've watched about 3 matches where this guy plays. I have yet to see him miss a ball! I am really impressed by the way he plays. But how come a guy who plays this good has yet not won the US...

    if my shaft is revo and measures to be 0.840 - then I want to match butt to it

    Should the butt be also 0.840 exactly as the shaft, or should it be a little bigger as 0.842 for a smoother transition? I just want to be sure what to order in the joint size to make the shaft fit neatly. Also sometimes I use mid-section extension between shaft and butt.

    When is it ok to cancel a custom cue - already paid half price

    So I’ll try to be brief. Back in February I ordered two custom cues not one; from a really good cue maker, he said the wait time is from 3 to 6 months so we are still within the wait time. i.e he’s not late on his delivery. However during that time period I found a cue that I really enjoy and...

    Cynergy/Revo ferrule white to black procedure?

    Do they paint the ferrule to change it to black or completely replace it? I know the correct answer is taking it to a capable repairman, but here where I am in Asia there arent many around and when I want to take it to somebody I'd like to know for sure that he's using the correct procedure...

    3/8*11 Titanium alloy shaft to a big pin 3/8*10 butt?

    This picture above is a cue that has a nice shaft, here I am showing the butt because if I show the shaft it will not reflect how it looks from the inside, so for better view I provide a picture of the joint pin itself. I got another butt which is the normal 3/8*10 pin.... so my question is, is...
