    Almost funny.... Almost
    but surely it impacts your working day therefore your costs / profits by having to deal with numpties asking for '11 arrows' evenly spaced? Or have a got a medium stiff shaft...

    I'd do what I believe Tyrone Cues does on em and tells em to beat it

      I tell them the same thing but lucky to not have had many yet and yes Martin from Tyrone cues told them no that...

      Most times they are tyre kickers anyway...

        i feel for the regular sellers and makers as i bet they get this nonsense all day every day
        I get more emails about this than anything. I have one customer that I thought I would answer everything they asked and more to see how many emails I could get on one cue order, from memory it was 76 and I am not joking; I can see why some people don't do custom cues any more.

          but don't try to get yourself elected, for if you do you'll have to cut your hair

              I believe you have missed the whole point ! it was 9.5 before he got all gung ho with the sandpaper and wants to get back to that somehow.

                No I haven't, this is his third thread about the same issue and he's yet to take up any of the advice he's been given. It matters not how the cue ended up with the dimensions it now has, he's been told what can be done about it but needs someone else to make up his mind for him or simply wants some forum attention or hasn't really got any money and is wasting everyones time.
