Need help... - 12-31-2019, 12:34 PM

I accidentally CRACKED (Split) the BUTT CAP for my Bill McDaniel Cue.
I Missed a shot and " lightly punched" the cue into the carpeted floor and it Split... FYI. To my fellow pool players, Don't do this.

Can anybody repair or make me a replacement Butt Cap w/ McDaniel Logo on it?
(It's the standard "C on top of M" Logo.)

I'm not sure if its Ivory or another synthetic material. But I'LL find out soon.

Or Any other ideas or suggestions ?

Happy New Year to all !!

Cash cues ($) would have been my suggestion but I'm pretty sure they are no longer making cues so I'm not going to suggest anyone in particular but whatever you do make sure you don't leave the repair to a rookie.

Duct tape and a sharpie are your friends.
Seriously, good luck in finding the repair.

Keep the cracked butt if you get it replaced. No one can do a McDaniel logo, other than Bill. Cash cues never did McDaniel logo replacements. Although they bought McDaniel's old shop, the logo rights remained with the original buyers of his shop, who moved the whole shooting match to Chicago. They still have rights to produce cues with McDaniel's logo but have not done so.

Contact Proficient Billiards they have earned their excellent reputation. I have used they for a very similar repair and the work was perfect. Be prepared to wait a while they are very busy.

You do need help, but not with the cue.

Work on your temperament. Slamming a cue into the ground hard enough to break it, just because you missed a shot??

Either work on your attitude or have someone make 50 butt caps for you.

Missing is part of the game.

Slamming cues is not.

I'd give Kent Davis a try. He does fine work and is a gentlemen.

I did the same thing with my DanBuilt (Dan Dishaw) cue in the early '90's. Fortunately, Dan was (and still is) in business and able to do the repair. I never slammed my cue again. Lesson learned.

If you're in L.A. then there in all seriousness are only 2 people to consider, for a timely return, and they're known for a high level of perfection. No one with any ethics is going to counterfeit a McDaniel logo though.
Might be possible to repair the existing crack and leave the original piece intact.

#1 is Eddie Cohen.
#2 is Eddie Cohen.

Kent will take longer most likely.
I'd recommend Ariel to be honest, but his back log of work might leave you hanging a while as well.
Joey Chin might be a good solution for a faster repair time. He works with Ariel.
I've seen a few of his cues, and they're very nice.

Eddie is a true perfectionist.
Hope he is able to help you.

I had a similar problem. About of the butt cap cracked off. I tried several types of super glue but it would not hold. So I secured it with clear packing tape wrapped all the way around the cue. Rarely do I even notice it.
