making my cue smooth

making my cue smooth

I bought a new pool cue a few weeks ago.

When I first slid it over my bridge hand it was really smooth, but now i keep losing games because there is a lot of friction building up with the varnish, or at least I think that is what it is. I have tried wiping it down and stuff but it does not help.

Would it be smoother if i removed the varnish to leave the bare wood? and what could i use to do this?

And also would i need to do anything else to protect it and keep it smooth etc?

    You can go to Ozonebilliards.com ,,Seybertsbilliardsupply.com, billiardwarehouse.com or any other billiard supply. Order a leather burnisher or a Q-wiz if you want. Either one will do. As for cleaning: go to your local super market and buy Mr. Clean magic Eraser. Follow the instructions for cleaning. Go to your auto supply and get a can of carbarnuba wax. After you clean the shaft give it a couple of coats of wax. There after you can keep it smooth using the burnisher you buy. I give my shafts a good cleaning about once a month or depending on how much use it gets.

    In a pinch i will wipe the shaft down with a couple of folded dollar bills. If you play a lot it is a good idea to keep a soft clean cloth with you to wipe it down also. or, you can spend a lot of money on the stuff they sell on the web sites.
