    Viking eXact shot

    Yea that’s what I was thinking. I might try to tape off the wood on the front 12 inches and lightly sand just the carbon. Then I might steam and sand at 800 or 1000 and seal the heck out of it. He just dropped it off. Honestly I expected a much better product for a $400+ shaft. There are gaps...

    eBay Rant

    Also watch your bank card for the next couple months. This happened to me and it’s a total scam to get your cc info once you pay they cancel and refund your money. But they keep your card info Sent from my iPhone using AzBilliards Forums

    Viking eXact shot

    I got a buddy that just bought a eXact shot shaft. The carbon fiber structure that runs through the cue is probably a hundred thousandth of an inch higher than the wood on the shaft. He’s bringing the shaft to me tomorrow for a tip clean up and shaft conditioning. When doing a cleaning should I...

    One piece phenolic tip break shaft repair

    They still want to use it as a break shaft. I’m not certain how much material I can remove without making the impact area to thin. I’d probably only need to take it down a mm or less if I was to reshape it. Sent from my iPhone using AzBilliards Forums

    One piece phenolic tip break shaft repair

    Hey folks, I was asked to fix this tip, seems easy enough but the owner obviously miss cues a lot (self proclaimed). They are okay with whatever I suggest, so what I was thinking to do was taking it down to just a phenolic ferrule and putting one of pooldawg8’s milk duds on there. Maybe use a...

    Extension Bumper

    Does this look like a familiar bumper brand to anyone? It’s in my collection of random bumpers so I’m not sure where it came from. I’m looking to install it but can’t find the thread count. Would I need to live thread the bumper onto the butt or do they make a tap this size? Minor diameter is...

    Suggestions on how to fix and prevent

    Hi everyone, Working on a CF extension for a customer and we wanted it to match up to exactly the same size as the butt cap. So I had to add some finish to the CF. Doing so created some runoff on the back and the joint face. I’d like to remove the lip but I’m worried that I’ll crack the finish...
