I was checking various jump/break cues over the internet the other day when I saw mentioned that this one j/b cue had a shaft that came coated with french cue wax. What's special about this wax, and is this good or bad? If bad, came the wax be removed and how do you go about it?

I bought 5 cues that had a french wax coating on them. I sold them to various people on my teams and in the room I play out of. I found they had a really smooth texture and weren't at all sticky.

It's been about 5 months since they were purchased and from what I can tell they still are smooth even though they've had plenty of time to accumulate dirt and grime.

Based on this limited experience I have nothin bad to say about the cue wax.

LOL! Mosconi almost had a stroke when we asked him about "waxing" or otherwise sealing shafts.

or....you could upgrade to the more exotic Brazillion wax
Here's a gal that made the switch:

Today I got my 1st bikini french wax.. so I haven’t had a brazilian wax yet. Wanted to try a french wax first before going all the way down there. It wasn’t as bad at all… in fact I didn’t really feel any discomfort! What was most painful was the days leading up to my appointment as I kept on expecting it to hurt a lot and stuff. In any case, in some silly way I’m proud of myself for going through with it and surviving the so-called pain.

"Well, yesterday I upgraded from my past french bikini wax to a full on brazillian wax. I was always a little tentative in the past because I didn’t see what the real difference was, BUT now I’m like “oooohhhhh”! Its so much cleaner and neat and bare. I was reading some of the other comments below and I have to say I’m not with a guy either and I liked doing it for myself, something special. Kind of makes me feel independant. I really like the whole brazillian look and it didn’t hurt much at all. The only problem is if I keep this up every 4-6 weeks its soooooo much $$$$$$! And I don’t feel like going to any other esthisian that might be cheaper. Its really important that you trust and feel comfortable with yours and I do with mind. I just wish they didn’t cost so much"

First I googled French wax, and found that here:

It's near the bottom (no pun intended)
Today i googled Brazilian wax and found this:

By Christina Valhouli

NEW YORK -- I am lying flat on my back, naked, holding my butt and legs up in the air while a middle-aged Brazilian woman peers at my crotch. She leans a little closer and moves her fingers between my flesh. While this is a position normally reserved for bedroom activities, it's business as usual at the J. Sisters International Salon in midtown Manhattan.

The salon is named for seven Brazilian-born sisters: Jocely, Jonice, Joyce, Janea, Jussara, Juracy and Judseia Padilha, whose claim to fame is introducing Americans to their hometown phenomenon of "Brazilian bikini waxing." What it is: a very thorough waxing where every bit of hair -- and I mean every last bit -- is removed except for a thin landing strip. Think porn star. Think pain. But also think fanatic devotion.



Celebrities love this procedure. Kirstie Alley has said, "It feels like a baby's butt, only all over." Paula Yates, the widow of INXS rocker Michael Hutchence, flies over from London to have it done (salons in the U.K. refuse to do it for hygienic reasons). The salon's walls are covered with celebrity photos and their signed testimony to the miracles of waxing. "You've ruined me for anyone else!" scribbled Jennifer Grey (or is she talking about her plastic surgeon?). "You've changed my life!" crowed Gwyneth Paltrow.
