Is their a member here on the forum that makes a custom extention just like the balance rite? I like the Bala rite but want on that looks better. Thanks
If you have the means, go with someone else.
Here is the thread on the defect.....
The comments on that thread, and on the YouTube video itself price it is not an isolated incident.
The owner of cue and case never did contact me after I called him and discussed the problem. He said they would look into it and get back to me.
Never heard from him again.
I'm glad you told me this I had no idea they were this bad, we checked my friends last nite and it made my cue jump about an inch when rolled on the table.
I couldn't believe how bad it was, I had to double check my cue cause the roll was so bad with the balance rite.
O and my cue was perfectly straight together an a part, so thanks again for showing me this thread.
No problem whatsoever.
I found out the hard way since I play with an extension full time, I thought my eyes were playing tricks when I was sighting in and the cue just didn't look straight. It was extremely noticeable on long straight in shot drills.
After talking to some cue makers, it was determined that if they are mass producing these extensions by cutting up one long piece of wood that has been lathed down to size. Each of those small pieces are not necessarily the same exact size due to the slightest of differences in diameter down the initial piece of wood. So when they each get center tapped for the joints, some just come out not true center. That's where you get the flaw that is shown in the video and thread.
My advice to your friend is just keep returning the balance rite until they send you a good one. I went through 3 to find 1 decent one. And after this thread, I'm considering getting one made as well.
Best of luck.
