On a cue that is already made use this method on the shaft just above the joint. If you like it then get the cuemaker to get a small steel rod cut to weigh the same as the lead tape and drill into the shaft and epoxy it in. You might also need to reduce the weight bolt size in the rear of the cue.Lead tape at the joint.
Used to use lead tape on golf clubs.
Cheap quick fix.
And if you dont like it, can be reversed.
Use lighter woods and bumper/hardware in the back of the cue. Use diff joint material,pin or type up front, denser wood on forearm. Take care of balancing the butt the shaft doesn’t need extra weight besides denser maple for that one maybe or mods like adding Weight inside above the joint.hi joey, before- I like a forward-balanced cue, just looking to learn more about how you cuemakers do it
