The long and short of it is I have a muecci with a busted shaft.I've been thinking about replacing it with either a break shaft or maybe just another regukar one with a leather tip.

The thing is the butt is warped.Its not real bad but light can be seen under it if you watch really closly at the table level as it rolls.This means when a straight shaft (no warp) is screwed on the whole cue takes on quite a wiggle when rolled.

So a buddy and I were discussing the situation and we arrived at the conclusion that a little warp in the butt should not matter at all since tha cue really needs to be straight from the bridge hand to the ball.

Or in other words,the cue behind the bridge hand can be shaped like an "S" for all it worth,it won't effect the shot like a warped shaft would.

Or am I missing something in this logic?

If this were your cue,would you buy another shaft,or just forget it?

I reckon that the bad news is that the warped butt wont make any difference.

The good news is that it will help most players and probably yourself i reckon. But it might hurt say 1 in 20 players. madMac.
