G-10 vs Brass - 07-12-2018, 10:16 AM

I typically use brass on "players" and G-10 on break cues. I THINK that the brass has a slight edge on feedback/playability and the G-10 allows for a tighter shaft to butt connection.
With that said I have had some feedback on players using the Merlin(G-10)
breaker as a player and are amazed at the playability especially when the PH shaft (Euro taper, G-10 ferrule & Samsara tip) is replaced with a maple shaft (pro taper). Whether it is the G-10 pin or the Merlin construction I have no idea. FWIW
.

So I have 2 cues both BEM, both 12.75 shafts, both 18.5 oz, and both using the same tips with 4 of the same Ld shafts. One cue has a modified 3/8 10 pin and one is regular 3/810 and the modified plays much stiffer to me. Thats why I was curious about radial.

I invented both the 3/8-10 and the Radial pin.

I have used both in my personal cues and can tell no difference.

Intersting, I respect who you are and what you have done in your career. If you think there is not a noticeable difference I will take your word for it. How much of a upgrade do you consider the new modified/radial to be? Is the 3/810 obsolete? Thanks

You invented the 3/8-10? The same pin used by McDermott, Viking, Mali, etc.?

Far from it. The standard 3/8x10 is still, and will continue to be, one of my favorite joint screws. The only screw I have not used in my cues is the newer 3/8x10 flat bottom. I have the correct tap for the standard, which means my hole for the threads matches the screws .281 minor and don't see a need for the flat bottom in my cues. If it's not broke. Don't fix it.

My favorite pin as well although I use both. From an ease of installation, play and cost perspective it's simply the nuts.

Yes I did.

In my beginning days at Joss Cues I measured a 3/8-12 pin on a Ginacue (a standard wood thread) and mistook it for a 3/8-10. Dan and I had the 3/8-10 pins made to order and McDermott and Viking copied them.

That is a fact.

Not the first time I've heard this. Mr. Janes told me years ago. He didn't mention the 12 thread. I think he might still have some of the originals. He doesn't throw much away. Lol
Thank you to both of you.
