      Yep that will need sorting so £20 can be knocked of the asking price if you are considering to make an offer.

        ouch, already short at 56", so any alterations to bring ferrule to snooker standard and clean will take it to 55" ish
        I would knock more than £20 off the asking price
        maybe worth it for the Far East market

          What you on about, far east market?

          It's a pool cue, it doesn't need to be long. And in any case, no-one needs a 58'' cue, even if they're 6ft tall, if they have a correct BtB.

          The gap: fill it with plastic wood. Tape the ferrule and the shaft first. 5min job.

            Far East tend to go for 55" cues, hence my comment.
            I know it is currently a pool spec due to the poor ferrule job, but it is common that a snooker spec cue (not necessarily 58" but longer than 56" ) makes more pennies, hence my comment.
            I did not think this was difficult, I apologies to you if it was.

              You could fit a thicker walled ferrule if it didn't bother you?

                good thought
                not that it would bother me, as I doubt I have every owned a cue a thin walled ferrule :shrug:

                  Don't understand why someone would pay out good money for a Trevor White cue then get a butcher job done on the ferrule. Some good cue makers will taper and fit a ferrule and retip it for £25-£30 it's not much considering the value of the cue.

                      Don't see any problem a simple ferrule replacement to the size of the wood no length lost or taper needed.

                        Won't the tenon be to thin just to fit a bigger ferrule?

                          If you want to replace the ferrule, then buy a bigger one. Put some plastic wood around the existing tenon and fit the new one while the plastic wood is 1/3 set but still pliable. You could also use plumber's epoxy to so the same job, though plastic wood is closer to the density of wood. Adding a thick-walled ferrule will ruin the cue and make the CB throw a lot, not something TW would have wanted I'm guessing.
