will a cue's balance point move forward just by being shorter in overall length?

I have 44" and 48" as well as a 57" or two. I just hold them longer. Front end stays down.

You could have a cue maker swap in a heavier insert or if you have wood threads, just drill past and add weight to your liking.

Depends what's removed. The balance point is the place where there's equal weight on both sides of it, so...

Remove material in front of current balance point - balance point moves back.

Remove material behind current balance point - balance point moves forward.

The usual specification of balance point is how far it is from the bumper. The actual important distance is how far it is from the tip.

I've often wondered why folks measure from the bumper up..
I guess most cues are around the same length
but if you're gonna measure bp
may as well take the whole cue into account
