Ok so this came up in chat today.

What would you rather have?

1) an original shaft that has been cut an inch shorter for extra diameter and do to a crack. (27.5 12.5mm)

2) Afternarket shaft 13mm made by unknown maker

3) original shaft 11 mm slight warp

Jim <——-for this question let’s assume we are talking a GB or Szam

2 because 1 and 3 are unplayable.

Just hope the unknown cue maker is not a hack.

Like Joey, Im gonna wanna play with it, but I also want it to retain value...

Id go with number 1 initially and then have my cuemaker make a matching new shaft. Id play with the new shaft and leave the shorter original shaft at home.
