You have a cue you like, but it has to much deflection.Joey who is a premier
cue maker can change your shaft to a LD shaft for a very reasonable price.
If this service is not something you are interested in then there is no reason
to respond. If you answer no because that seems to high say so, if you don't
think he is capable of doing it, say that. To say no I don't want any one messing
up my shafts is ridiculous. You obviously are not interested in the service, so
why respond. That is like calling up a guy that paints cars and telling him,I'm
not letting anyone paint my car I like the way it is.

Hell no. Buying a whole new shaft at 500 bucks or less is a better option IMO just so my current shaft remains as it currently is.

I have been doing this for around a year now for my friends and family cues. Haven't quite got out of the experimenting stage yet. I have learned that the longer the carbon fiber tenon is, its controls the stiffness, and flexpoint in the shaft. However I am still trying to find the right combination of inner/outer diameter of the carbon fiber tenon. Anyone have any recommendations, and probably more importantly why you recommend those dimensions?

Yeah, I'd probably give it a whirl. If you're actually doing this, please shoot me a PM.

There is very few cuemakers as knowledgable as joey and just google him and/or kerry zylr if you want to know who he is and PLAYABILITY in cues and shafts. I certainly would do this,my only concern would be losing too much of my shaft diameter,if i could be assured not to lose more than 1-2 tenths of a mm then yes for sure.i have owned cues by almost all of the florida makers( showman,rick howard,nitti,mobley,NOT a searing lol,can,t afford) and joey builds a BETTER hitting cue than all those even though i do like ricks HIT alot. I,m just assuming you might play one of those.
