hey guys and gals, there's the nice guy in league we played last week that had this cue (sorry don't know the maker). But hwta was unique about it was that the but actually inscrewed a bit to release and extension to the cue, making it longer. Thought it was kinda cool, but I've never seen that before. Anyone know about the legality of such a thing (I'm not the tallest person in the world, something like that may wind up being handy if I could have it done to my Predator).

I have seen cues similar to the one you described.
I used to have a link to a web site for the maker, but I can't seem to find it.

I believe they are legal. To the best of my knowledge, there is no legal limit on the length of a cue.

Its legal from what I've seen. There were some pros using that same feature on their cues at the superbilliards men's pro tournament this year.

If I remember correctly, Mike Webb puts this type of extension on some of his cues.

Jacoby was installing extensions like that on some of their cues.

I don't believe he makes them any longer because he felt the mechanism needed for the extension made the cue too butt heavy.

I think these are more common in Europe where older buildings have limited space. Here is a link...

I think Nat Green @ Southeast cues near Nashville does cues like this. If I'm not mistaken, he can also fit any cue brand with this attachment.

I would think that the attachment that is added to the end of the cue would be better for playability of the cue, as well as weight and balance issues. jmo though.

I would agree either that extender made by Longoni which many people say is good or a screwin extender like Karen Corr has.

A cue extender is perfectly legal.
