    Will be great to see photos once you get the cue also so we can see the shaft

          Looks like someone hit him with a ban.

            Well... No photos yet but a little update on this: I received the cue this week and have had two chances of playing / practising with it. It quite simply is the best cue I've ever held in my hand. From the first shot it felt perfect. There's nothing in the cue that distracts me from making the shot I want to play. It's exactly the way I imagined it. A little heavier cue seems to fit my style bang on...

            However I am sending it back as they did not include the butt end joint for screw on extensions. Turns out they don't do this automatically if you're not ordering an extension with the cue. I already have a Peradon mini butt and a telescopic extensions for my old cue. Should have told them about this when I made the order. Anyway after a few emails with their helpful customer services they offered to add the joint for me free of charge. I'll post some photos of it after I get it back!

                  Very nice cue and looks like nice shaft grains as well. Well done on the purchase.

                      Looks like a very nice cue. I'm glad you are happy with it.

                        Will a half jointed cue be stiffer than a three quarter, as a general rule?

                          I'd say so as the joint itself won't flex and shorter shaft in front of the joint is naturally stiffer than a longer one. Don't think the cue bends behind the joint much. This cue has 0.5mm wider tip than my old cue so I'm guessing it's contributing to the overall stiffness too.

                          Anyway... Last Tuesday I was practising straight shots with my old cue with a rather tricky routine I learned in a coaching session I had with John Woods (thanks John if you're reading!). I put a red on the blue spot and the cue ball on the brown spot. The idea is to hit the red in dead center let it bounce back from the black cushion and hit the cue ball again. I got 0 out of 10 with my old cue. With the new cue today I managed to get 4 out 10 which I'm pretty happy with. I only tried once in each session...
