  • 9mm Or 10mm Ferrule?

    I'm thinking about having the width of my ferrule increased from 9mm to 10mm maybe. Is this a good idea and what pros and cons might it have? Any advice would be great.

    It's preference. I don't think there's any benefits to one or the other.

      Shaun Murphy recently went from 8.7mm that he has been playing with forever to 9.5mm (?) and says it suits him better now.
      The consideration you have to look into is how much length of shaft will you lose to increase the ferrule diameter.

        Shaun Murphy had 1/2" off cue so ferrule could be 9mm.

          thanks TD for the correct diameter
          To gain a 1mm increase in ferrule diameter (depending on the shaft taper) it could be quite a lot of shaft removed.

            You will notice a big difference in the cue over your bridge, I know one mill sounds like nothing but it's quite a big change to a cue, it may look like a brush handle as you feather.

              You need a lot off your cue to do that - it will totally destroy the cue don't do it sell it get another or try a few - 10 mil is a huge jump for you if you play with 9 mil go up a bit at a time if anything 9.2 9.3 go somewhere like green baize try a few cues out see what feels right is my advice.

                Unless I'm missing something, with around a 20mm difference between butt and tip to take add a mm you would have to take off around 2 3/4 inches on a 58 inch cue or change the ferrule wall thickness to reduce reduction e.g. thicker ferrule.

                  After reading these replies to my question I think I might just leave my cue as it is because I really like the cue and don't want to ruin it! I just thought that maybe having a wider ferrule/wider tip might improve my game a bit on long shots and would improve my centre ball striking (not putting any unintentional side on the cue ball) on certain shots due to having a wider tip. But if that means destroying my cue I think I'll leave it the way it is at 9mm!

                    You could always try putting on a 10 mm tip onto your 9 mm ferrule like this

                      For experience, try a mushroom tip with 10mm. If you like it, them go for a new cue!

                        That's a really good point. There are a few shapes you can have doing it this way. The last one I did a few weeks ago the guy just wanted a 10mm stuck straight on the 9mm ferrule with no reshaping. He loves it!
