The fact that he had a shaft he wanted to use on the cue is irrelevant.
The cue was listed as a cue with a 3/8x10 joint. That was wrong. I am certain that it was an honest mistake, but it was still wrong. The cue was inaccurately described in the listing.
Not to easy to do I think. 3/8 x 11 on aftermarket shafts is not common. 3/8 x 10 is. No production maker I know uses 3/8 x 11 so the aftermarket shaft makers don't make many. South West and numerous other custom makers who use 11 thread represent a very small % of total cue sales.
It seems nuts to me that, on the facts presented, so many people are on the seller's side.
- If a shaft is advertised as 12.75 mm but it's 13mm, do you just take it down? What if it's the reverse, do you just get used to it?
- If a cue is advertised as 19 oz but it's 19.5 and there are no weight bolts to remove, do you just drill out the but a little?
- If a cue is lighter than advertised, do you just add a weight bolt?
I can't see a lick of difference between any of these issues and the pin diameter issue. It's either what was advertised or it's not. Period.
Save your documentation and dispute the charge.
Because if that is ok by you, what happen's when you purchase and/or sell a cue for big money under an assumption and it turns out to be pos knock off from china?
Wow really. Are you saying i would try to sell a cue thats a knock off and lie? The op said that the seller was told it was a 3/8x10 by whomever he purchased the cue from. He sold it the same way. He did not know it was not a 3/8x10 pin. The op confirmed this. If you or anyone else says that you research every aspect of every cue you have sold, then i challenge you and call you a bold faced liar. But hey what can i tell a bunch of know it alls anyway right? I say post a pic of the pin. That way all the cue experts here can see it. You will know if its a 3/8x10 or 11 by the pics. If you cant tell the difference in picture format, then you all owe the seller an apology. Im not saying the seller is right or the buyer. Im saying theyre both in the wrong. The buyer likes the cue. Hes just unhappy that he bought a shaft before the cue arrived and the shaft doesnt fit. Not the sellers fault. Yes the seller should apologize for the misunderstanding, but why should he have to pay for the op buying a shaft that he had no way of knowing if it would fit or not? Even if the pin size were correct, the shaft still might not fit. Both parties are in the wrong.
Are you kidding me!!!!!!!!
If the cue was a 3/8x10 pin like he was told and the shaft wouldn't fit this thread would have never been started. You should probably stop posting cause your not doing yourself any favors.
Read the original post again because youre all clearly not seeing it. The seller purchased the cue from another person on the false pretense that the pin was 3/8x10. Ok are you with me? Or have i lost you? The seller never used any other shaft than the one that was original to the cue. He posts the cue for sale. He knows nothing other than the info given to him by whoever he bought the cue from. The pin is similar to a 3/8x10 correct? Note i said similar. The original poster of this thread buys the cue from the seller. Ok heres where its getting tricky for you. BOTH the buyer and the seller are under the impression that this cue has a 3/8x10 pin. Notice i said both. Ok so the buyer purchases the cue with said pin. He also purchases an aftermarket jacoby shaft for the cue he has yet to recieve and even inspect. He is upset that the pin is SIMILAR to a 3/8x10 but will not fit his new shaft. So wants his money back. Seller will not refund because his statement was nothing more than what he was LED TO BELIEVE. Yes the pin is 3/8x11 but the seller did not purchase the cue new according to the op.
What the f*$k. You can't be serious.
He was told the cue had a 3/8x10 pin. It does not. Plain and simple. All that other shit you are taking about makes no sense. So if I sell you a radial pin cue but tell you it's a 3/8x10 your not going to mad . I mean they are both similar in the fact that they are big pins.
It does but matter what the seller was led to believe. It is his responsibility tomake sure the info is correct . You have to understand this.
Like I said before, please stop posting before you dig a hole for yourself. Nobody is going to want to buy anything from you if you keep saying goofy stuff like that.
