Keeping Ferrules Clean - 07-03-2020, 01:31 PM

Have just tried a new idea on some of my playing cues and it's working great. There is a ceramic coating manufactured by Mothers Auto Finishes called RMX Ceramic polish. After polishing ferrule I applied a light coating with a cotton swab and let it dry, then buffed and applied another coating and buffed again. Ferrules are staying cleaner than I have ever seen . Hope it helps someone , but it works well for me.

A number of players seem to have an issue with their ferrules getting discolored. Bottom line - if one learns to apply chalk correctly on their tip, your ferrule should never need to be cleaned.

It really doesn't even matter if you apply chalk "incorrectly". Stop being lazy and just wipe off your ferrule at the end of your session when putting away your cue.

Magic eraser sheets are now available- small square moistened or dry will usually clean any ferrule.

I really like the McDermott cue cleaning kit. Used in conjunction with an ivory ferrule and it’s even better.

Toothpaste......cleans up ferrules and start doing it early before the stain leaves a hue even after removal.

Yep,it's CMX ,,and the idea is,,this is a coating that won't let the dust particles in,,along with,, I paint chalk onto my tips,,I don't grind the stuff in,,,,no matter what ya do there will be a bit of discoloration,,the hydrophobic materials that make the ceramic coatings so good , is that they actually work .The link below, will give an idea of how these materials protect.

Sure - cleaning the ferrule will help. But using chalk that is too deep and using the incorrect “drilling” method of chalking WILL matter. Sounds like you don’t understand the correct method of chalking, because drilling can scratch and will discolor the ferrule.

I wax (Mother's Pure Carnauba Wax) my ferrules along with my shafts (2 to 3 coats), wash my hands, hold my shaft at an angle when applying, and wipe off everything with a Selvyt microfiber cloth. Which is why I am so happy I can break out my Revo when I get tired of the above cleaning ritual.
