Thanks again.

Have an aluminum joint pin put in, and if needed take out some of the weight in the back! There is a 3/8 x 10 aluminum pin available or a pin can be made.

The rule of thumb is my own and derived from my Herman Rambo cue that is 57-1/2" w/balance point set at 17-1/2". This I think is a good standard to go by since he made many of the cues for the great bygone players.

But some say a little forward balance point is good when a guy gets older, I really do not know about this theory. Best to go with what feels good to you!

A lot of cues these days are 58" w/19" balance point, I like the feel of an 18" balance in this length cue. Whitey

Whitey, Howdy;

The "Baby Huey" cue would need to be torn apart and rebuilt. The threads for
any weight bolt are almost 3-1/2" down inside the butt. The whole butt end
is fatter then most built now days and the naked butt, no bumper or weight
bolt, tipped the scale at a hefty 16.83 oz. also, the weight bolt is what the
bumper screws into. Someone would have to figure out how to remove another
whole ounce and a half from the butt to bring this down to something more
playable for me. Shafts were 3.7 & 3.9 oz. each before being turned from
a chunky 14 mm (each), to a trim 12.75 mm each. Forgot to have them weight
checked but they most likely still tip a scale at or very close to 3 oz. each.

We've hijacked my thread about Learning Banks but it's a good detour.

Always enjoy the input from others.
