Authentic Joss Cues® Shafts
Through the last 40+ years I have changed a great many parts of the Joss Cue and feel that they have all been successful in making a better playing and longer lasting cue.
For the last two years I have been conducting quite a few “on the road” tests with new types of ferrules and different ways of installing them.
When I started Joss Cues (1968) all ferrules were one-half to seven-eighths of an inch long. I have come to the conclusion that the old way may have been a better way.
All new Joss Cues will have the old original three-quarters of an inch capped ferrule. This ferrule will still be threaded on a wood tenon but will be just a bit shorter. This type of ferrule has a better hit and feel.
The shorter tenon has less of a chance to hinge over and inadvertently spin the ball. At the same time, it is very strong and will result in a longer lasting cue.
Delivery will be determined at the time of the order. Nonstandard shafts because they are a special order (size) it will be charged in full to start the order.
Joss Cues High Performance Technology
The high Performance shaft “The Natural” $290.00
A traditional style shaft with the HP package installed.
This component is the all-important ferrule and tip combination.
We have chosen a ½ ferrule to minimize the “hinge over” and a Joss Premium layered tip.
This combination will increase accuracy and virtually eliminate any unintentional ball spin.
The phenolic insert installed into the bottom of the shaft.
This insert is a precision machined component.
The phenolic allows for a tighter fit on the screw of the butt and has a dampening benefit.
There is a 6 inch “light weight” dowel installed in the front of the shaft.
This dowel has been glued in with a variable flex resin to allow a strong bond.
But resilient enough to withstand the constant striking of balls.
