And due to the way water is transported around the globe::It hits 3 quadrillion-- gallons.
There is enough water in Lake Superior (3,000,000,000,000,000--or 3 quadrillion-- gallons) to flood all of North and South America to a depth of one foot.
Yes, I’ve tried ash at pool and snooker….I played pretty good with it…but I find it inferior to maple.Have you ever tried an ash shaft on a pool cue?
The cue was ever so slightly forward balanced and it played great. I did end up trading it to Cue Addicts at The Derby for a Nitti that I still have to this day. There were a couple of factors besides great wood that might have made those shafts so heavy. First, Paul's taper was super gradual. I think he referred to it as an "elliptical" taper. So the shaft had a little more mass to it than ones that have the really long pro tapers. Plus (and I'm not 100% sure this even is a factor) it was a 5/16-14 pin so it had a metal insert. In all honesty, the only reason I traded it was that I was going through a cue obsession phase and wanted something new.WOW !!!
How did the balance feel? Does it feel that there is a lot of weight on the bridge which slows down your stroke?
Iirc, the superior shafts are on the light side?Years ago I had the late Paul Dayton make a cue for me and he offered these Lake Superior salvage wood shafts. I ended up going with standard maple because I didn't really see the need for the added expense. But he did say something to the effect of those shafts were the most stable shaft wood he'd ever used and seemed to lack the ability to warp.
For what it's worth, the standard maple shafts for the cue he made me were beasts. Full 13 mm, natural ferrules, and both weighed just over 5 oz.
