    They are getting more orders than they can handle I guess.
    Looking for perfection is the only way to motivate yourself.

        My 3/4 JPU cue was changed to 'In Progress' in early Feb and the cue was ready at the end of August, so it took 6 months for mine from 'In Progress' to 'Ready'. Hope to receive my cue in the next 1-2 weeks

          And everyone is happy with their cue? I am thinking about ordering one for my boyfriend, one Ambassador Cue. Will it be a nice gift, or risky?

            That is the one I would avoid - if you must buy one buy a classic.

                    Both come with 18oz option as the lightest on the website. Do you think if someone asked they could be made a bit lighter? Say 17.5 oz.

                      If I am not mistaken, weight below 18 oz for a 3/4 cue would make the shaft hollow.

                        ??? How can the weight of a cue make it whippy?
                        Its the stiffness that determines that

                          Correction. I meant hollow.

                              Shaft won't be hollow, the butt will most likely be drilled out though.
