Maintaining the Ferrule and Pool Cue Tip

Maintaining the Ferrule and Pool Cue Tip

Here are a few quick notes on how some folks maintain the pool cue tip and ferrule on their billiard cue.

Maintaining the Ferrule and Pool Cue Tip

Over time, chalk, dirt, and other foreign substances can build up on the ferrule and over time, will embed on your pool cue like a tar substance. Cleaning the ferrule and tip of your pool cue regularly, by simply wiping it down (ensuring that you fully dry it off) can help to prevent this buildup from occurring. This will make for a smoother, cleaner, and better playing shaft, which can only serve to improve your game, and extend the pool cue's life span.

The actual pool cue tip is also very important to keep clean. It's cleanliness will affect backspin, accuracy, touch, smoothness of stroke, and precision of each and every shot that you take. When the pool cue is not in use, it should be maintained by by protecting the cue's tip from any foreign dings, scrapes, gouges, or anything else that may otherwise be of potential danger. This can be achieved by placing it in a cue case, or ensuring it's safe return to the pool cue rack. Finally, you must remember that the tip itself should always be covered when not in play.

    Have you not heard of the Turtle Tapper pool cue tip tool? My brother Robert has invented it and it is invaluable in maintaining pool cue tip quality.
