View Full Version : Predator ferrule experiment aborted!!!!!!!!!

Well, my new steel jointed Predator arrived yesterday (I was playing with the wood to wood) which I was going to have Dennis Searing change the ferulle as an experiment. Well, Dennis suggested I take it home and play with it and bring it back if I want a change. He explained tennons and threading and hollowness and the like. So he slapped a Triangle/medium hard on there (no charge, thanks Dennis) and sent me on my way.

Got to the pool room around 8 o'clock, messed around for a while and got down to business. From the second the cue touched my hand it was an extension of myself. Nope, the ferulle will not change, I believe the steel joint is the difference. The cue hits like a monster, just unbelievable. I find it hard to believe that the steel joint/wood to wood makes that big a difference but alas I think it does. So we shall keep the little Predator ferrule.
