I read that most pros tweak their cues. It was Earl Strickland that made the comment. What is he talking about?

Tweeking can mean a lot of things but; for instance, many people change the balance point by removing/adding weight to the cue, some get their shafts reduced or modify the joints in some manner. Most of us can find a commercially available cue that hits great for us but some people have such a refined feel, they make further adjustments. In reality, if you change your tip to a different type or even radius, you are, in effect, tweeking your cue.</font color>

<font color="blue"> LOL, Rod,

You'll get a kick out of this. My wife's BCA nine ball team captain brought me a cue to repair. The cue was a Walmart type with a slip on tip! Under the tip was a chewed up old ferrle(looked like Fido got hold of it.) I didn't know what to do as she didn't want to spend anything on it. I just went to Walmart and bought a $1.97 pack of slip on tips and put one on. She loved it and said, "It looks like new."

I guess some tweekings are easier than others. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif</font color>
