why not just order one.
Because Pete wants me to send the cue, he doesn't want to make a shaft without the butt, and fully insured shipping both ways (Nevada to New York) would cost $300 in addition to the price of the new shaft-

One of the issues with owning an expensive cue, been playing with it for almost 6 years now-

Bobby Chamberlin (WrldPro here) was selling a number of Tascarella shafts a few weeks ago. I bought one from him that fit my Tasc just fine. All had the silver ring w/ black phenolic. Might be worth reaching out to him to see if he has anything left, or that he'd be willing to part with.

I ship thousand-dollar cues and the insurance has like six bucks for full amount. How much is this damn thing worth?

Thanks I’ll check it out. So, if I use Ups second day air to send a $1k cue I can insure it for around $6?
It depends. UPS has different rates depending on your account. I may have been exaggerating a bit but to pay $300?

I just checked and if I send a $1000 cue sized box to Colorado it's $51 second day air and if I change the value to $10 it goes down to $41. So it's ten bucks for the thousand dollar insurance 2nd day air. If I send the same package ground it's $13 for the $10 box and $25 for the $1000 claimed value. So the insurance is $12. They know that they treat ground packages like jack stands and there's a higher likelihood of a claim I guess.

In order to get the cost of insurance up to $300 the cue would have to be worth about $25k. Is that how much these Tascs are going for?

Not saying they aren't just wondering if that's true or not.

i have 3 verified Tascarella shafts, each weighing in at 3.8 ounce exactly
I need more than weight, please read my original post and send me detailed specs and pictures of the shaft. Thank you.

I only ship Fedex overnight on expensive items. UPS has broken things and USPS tracking is useless.
Declared value of my cue is $3500
Shipping is $150 each way with insurance. $300 total, not one way.

Well then if that's who you trust then just pay it. And have Pete make you a shaft or two that fits exactly and matches exactly. Good stuff is expensive to own and maintain.

I get folks in my shop all the time who could afford to buy aging luxury cars but can't afford to own them. Don't be like them. Good luck
