About the Book

To my knowledge, there has never been a book that brings together in one location all the information on billiard maintenance tools, ferrules and tips and provides six simplistic techniques for replacing a cue tip and making it stay on the cue.

This book reviews many of the popular maintenance tools on the market today.  It discusses the various types of ferrules most commonly found on cues.  It provides an extensive review of over thirty types of tips that are available on the market today and will discuss the types, densities and sizes.

If you own a cue, you will need to know how to maintain your tip and how to replace it when the time comes.  The “How To” and “When To” will be discussed in detail.  If you are one of the many who knows little about the tools and methodology to do this, then this book is for you.

About the Author

Through high school and college he spent time in the pool halls exposed to the game of pocket billiards.  Later in his retail career, he delivered and set up pool tables.

As General Manager for a billiard retail store, he learned about cues and servicing them.  He read everything he could regarding the product lines and would attend billiard shows to assist the buyer in cue selections.  He became familiar with cue manufacturers and was asked to evaluate cues by an importer.

After tipping thousands of cues manually, he was often asked how he was able to make the tips stay on.  His knowledge and exposure to the business, manufacturers and people who knew, was the key to his success.
