-Warpage
-Inconsistent tolerances
-Inferior materials, in general
-Uneven finish application

That's off the top of my head but each poses a unique issue when working on a cue.
Four or five years ago I fixed well over one hundred shafts for a dealer friend of mine because they were suffering from some of the above. They came from some foreign country
also mentioned somewhere above.
