I-Shaft Maintenance Tips
 
 
Protect Your Investment
 
The Tip
Probably the most important part of the pool cue is the tip. We currently use Moori tips on all Intimidator shafts. A tip should be shaped in a convex manner to help create maximum cue ball response on all shots. The tip should also be kept coarse allowing chalk to adhere to it. When using any tool to shape and scuff your tip, always follow the manufacturer's instructions. Once the side wall of the tip becomes thinner than a dime, the tip should be replaced. We recommend the McDermott Ultimate Tip Tool for tip maintenance.

The Shaft
Through use of the cue, the shaft may become soiled. There are many products available to clean the shaft of the cue. Avoid using products containing waxes or oils, such as silicone and lanolin. Application of these products will break down the structure of the wood causing it to soften and decay. We recommend the use of McDermott Renew and Ultraglide. Regular use of McMagic, our hi-tech abrasive films, will smooth the shaft and make it less likely to absorb dirt.

The Joint
When the cue is not in play, we suggest the use of Joint Protectors. Joint protectors serve 2 purposes. 1. To protect the joint pin and shaft threads from any damage. 2. To seal off the unfinished end of the shaft from moisture.

The Butt
The Irish Linen wrap works to absorb moisture from the player's hands. We recommend your cue be re-wrapped after extended use to keep a clean absorbent surface on the butt of the cue

Proper Storage
The cue should be stored in consistent temperature and moisture conditions. Extreme temperatures or humidity will cause warpage. If the cue is being stored on a wall mounted rack, be sure it is kept perfectly straight. Avoid wall mounted racks that are installed on an outside wall. For extended storage, use a carrying case laid on a flat surface, leaving the case open to allow movement of air.
