How tight? . Proper torque

I just got a new cue. it’s a Viking B2001 with a stainless steel pin 5/16 by 18 quick release joint. The v-pro shaft has a brass threaded insert. I searched but couldn’t find so I’m curious to know how tight (torque) should I screw the two halves together for consistent solid play. I like the cue and would like to get many years out of it while minimizing maintenance and maximizing its
performance. Thank you for sharing your expertise.

Screw it together to what you think is tight. Then one little final twist. That'll do it.
