Titanium Billiard Ferrules
Our titanium billiard ferrules are for Snooker, English Pool and Chinese Pool Cues. We thread the ferrules unlike our competitors and this is because of a few reasons.
Our competitors make their ferrules from a harder grade titanium that’s also hard to machine even with the aid of a lathe. We found that many ferrules had marks in the ferrule almost impossible to remove.
With nonthreaded ferrules, the tenon or section of the ferrule is fitting to need to be a tight fit and then pushed on and glued. This method doesn’t allow for timber movement and in all climates the shaft wood will have movement and then make a noise.
The Titanium Billiard Ferrules have a thread which helps not only have a tighter fit but something for the glue to adhere to and prevent the movement seen in a nonthreaded ferrule.
We’ve found that the playability of the cue also increases with some tapers as well and as they are 50% the weight of brass, which helps in less deflection. The other major advantage is that the diameter doesn’t change like brass when changing tips over time, which I feel is the largest bonus.
For Sizing we have had made the following sizes:
- 8.00mm Titanium
- 8.5mm Titanium
- 9.25mm Titanium
- 9.5mm Titanium
- 9.75mm Titanium
- 10.5mm Titanium
- 11 mm Titanium
Please not that the sizing can be either way by /- .1-.2
1/2 the weight of brass , obviously harder and also workable.
Easy to machine on a lathe
8mm in height can also easily be machined on lathe
