Ask Ewa: A Warped Cue

Question: How do you get a slight warp out of your cue stick? Thank you –Rick


Hi Rick,

I’m afraid I’m not a cue expert, but I’m fairly sure there is nothing you can do about a warped cue… Chances are though, that it’s the shaft that’s warped. If that’s the case, you should have no problem contacting the the cue maker or company that sold you the cue and order a new shaft without it costing anywhere near what it would cost to replace your cue.

Warping is usually a result of the cue being exposed to moist conditions. Leaving the cue in the car overnight, even if it’s protected by a quality cue case, can cause warping. Another possibility is that the wood was not completely cured when you bought the cue. This is very rare, especially since the quality of even less expensive cues nowadays is so good.

But it can also possibly be that the joint is slightly bent. That could possibly be fixed, but again, I would contact a cue maker to find out if anything can be done to fix what’s ailing your cue.
Good luck!
