Uni-loc, Accu-Loc, Quick release, etc. etc. For the most part I understand what these joints are and feel like. However, recently at my local pool hall, a guy I was playing was talking to me about how he had to send out the cue and the predator blank to a cue maker to get the shaft drilled for the radial pin, and The radial pin in the joint. What is a Radial joint/pin? What are the benefits/drawbacks of such a joint? Is it a stiff hit with good transfer of feel? Or a softer hit, with dampened vibration? Please help me sort out the confusion!!!
