View Full Version : moving weight in cue

It must be getting late. Here's another of my dumb thoughts. It is probably something that was tried and was useless. Putting a moving weight in the cues. Sort of like what they did with baseball bats. I don't know if it ever worked any in baseball bats. A moving weight was put into the bats. And when you would swing the weight would move toward the tip of the bat to supposedly add power at impact. I heard about that from one of my nephews on little league about 10 years ago. I never heard much more about it so I guess it either didn't work or was outlawed.

A moving weight could be placed in the rear of the cue. And at impact it supposedly could add more power to the hit.
I think it's past my bedtime.

Eddie, Id be willing to bet that has been tried. One major problem I see is the cue ball would be gone before the weight had any effect. Not to mention I doubt we need more that 1 moving part or noise from a sliding weight, bam!!
