Cuemakers-Changing The Balance Point
As stated in another thread,Keith McCready wanted more forward balance
on his cue. Guido took the cue and placed it on a scale and somehow
found out where the balance point was. He then performed surgery and
took the cue stick apart and replaced a black-looking thick screw
inside the butt of the cue and even pushed this weight up further
inside the butt, a little over one inch from where it was previously,
shifting the balance point. The previously weighted 19-1/4 ounce cue
stick now weighs a little over 21.
That may be exactly what Keith wanted, but what I'd like to know is,
what all the other procedures could have been to achieve the same
results from least invasive, to what was done, as well as more
invasive without changing the total weight of the cue so drastically.
Wouldn't least invasive have been to make a new shaft that was
somewhat heavier than the original before pulling out the scalpel?
Even though it would have increased the total weight, it wouldn't have
been anywhere close to 21 oz.
No peeking at the other guys answer sheet across from you before
