Here are a few thoughts...

  • A soft dry cotton towel is great for your cue.
  • It can be used on the shafts as well as the butt.
  • Avoid sanding your shaft. Sanding your shaft will eventually change its shape & size.
  • Use sandpaper in grits 1000 and higher to avoid removing material from the shaft.
  • Have your tips done professionally.
  • Avoid cleaning your shaft with water or cleaners if possible.
  • The cleaner your hands are the cleaner the cue will be.
  • Never wet your linen wrap with water or cleaners.
