How it plays:
~ Joss cues hit stiff due to the stainless steel joint, shorter taper and thicker shaft diameter
~ Joss has been preserving the traditional look and values of old-time cue making for over 32 years.
~ Each cue is marked with a unique serial number on the joint to increase value and create distinctive character.
~ A real family effort since 1968. Joss takes the profession of cue making very seriously.
~ They are produced in smaller quantities, therefore concentrating on quality.
~ Joss cues have a changeable weight system. You can change the weight by using a 1/4" allen tool.
~ 2 to 3 oz. is the maximum change.
