    What’s it worth? Schon R series

    I always said we need a what its worth thread around here. Thinking about parting with my small collection as a whole. Not interested in separating cues or selling single shafts. If i part with it, it will be all or nothing. Either way, enjoy the eye candy. R1 player, great shape. R1...

    Longer CF shafts?

    So when will we start seeing some longer carbon fiber shafts? Maybe 30 or 31"? Anyone heard anything? I like my cuetec but would really like another inch or two. I had a Jacoby edge built with an extra inch and loved it. It doesn't seem like much but worked well for me.

    Schon R series cues

    My humble collection. R12, R6, R4, R1 and another R1. The last R1 is my daily player and plays as good as any cue I have ever tried. Oh and there are a few good shafts with them. 1 unplayed, several with micarta and a few with ivory.

    OB Break cue issue

    I bought this break cue a few months ago and really like it but while breaking the other night, the tip came off. On further review it looks like it wasn’t the tip but part of the ferrule broke off and took the tip with it. Anyone else seen this happen? I have an OB Lift jump cue with the same...

    Liquid Weight Cues

    I have been seeing some advertisements for these cues and checked out their website. It looks like an interesting concept to me but others might see it as a cheap gimmick. I am not ready to run out and buy one, but just curious what other people think?

    Matching ringwork

    I have an old R series Schon with stitch rings and want to get a Jacoby Hybrid shaft blank and have the rings matched. Got a few questions. Should I buy the blank and send it off or let the cue guy buy it? Do I really need to send the cue in? I had Runde build a few shafts a few years ago and...

    Should Winning One Pocket Be Rewritten

    I have been reviewing my copies of WOP along with SM&S the last few weeks and it got me thinking about a rewrite of these great books. While a lot of the material is very relevant and above the average players head and ability, I can't help but wonder what a newer version of these books would...

    Break cues with SS joints?

    I always wondered why more break cues aren't built with a SS joint configuration? Seems the vast majority are a 3/8 by 10 wood to wood configuration. Is there a reason or is it just because no one seems to ask for them to be built this way?
