Sorry if this is a dumbass question.

Thank you

Possible, yes. I guess you are talking about having a 4 piece cue. Don't know how practical that would be.

Well, I never shot with it, but back a few years or so, there was a guy in Lansing, Mi named Vince, an older guy, I think used to ride to Pockets on a bike. He had a 5 piece Chinese cue he payed 3 cushion with and everyone would snicker at it. Then he’d kick their butt with that ‘stupid cue’. Tough guy to beat.

Might be more the player than than the cue that makes the difference.

I agree that good players can use almost any cue laying around.

Fleabay has those five piece cues for sale.
They are described as “Rare, Hand Carved, Collectable Cues.
They list them for $75 to $200.
Must be patented....I’ve never seen any cue maker make them.
I’m going bid on one right now for $150.

I do not think even those cues are allowed on an airplane because of the on section with the screw protruding out would be considered a weapon by the TSA- better check first before buying for that purpose- also every airport has their own interpretation. Better to get an old 57inch Dufferin or Excalibur from the 80s- a two piece cue, they both had excellent shaft wood, find one that is reasonably straight and you can put it in a larger checked bag with a TSA lock - I just use a cheap case to hold the cue inside my checked bag.

My opinion on travel cues is each piece should be around 20 inches and the cue three pieces. That gives a full stroke shaft with no joint going through your fingers.
