7. They can be applied to your existing shaft. How? First, choose a size that is smaller than the OD of your shaft. It is best to have your favorite cue repair person apply your new ferrule. Simply turn down your existing ferrule in a lathe to produce a tenon that is slightly smaller than the ID of your new Snapshot® Ferrule and about 1/16 inch longer. Then thoroughly clean the ID of your New Snapshot® with alcohol or lacquer thinner. Mix epoxy and thoroughly apply to both the inside of your new Snapshot® Ferrule and the outside of the tenon you just cut. Apply the ferrule, allow to set and then work your shaft down with sandpaper to meet the OD of your new Snapshot® Ferrule. IMPORTANT! You will work your shaft down to the Snapshot® Ferrule with sandpaper. Don't sand too much. DO NOT TRY TO TURN OR CUT YOUR SNAPSHOT® FERRULE IN A LATHE (You will break your tool or you will break your new ferrule). Face off the extended tenon to your new ferrule being careful not to make contact with it. Apply the tip of your choice and you are ready to play. For the cue makers out there these same procedures apply to new shafts as well. Again we recommend a reputable cue maker or repair person install your new ferrule. See Install Guide for pictorial and videos.
8. They are extremely lightweight. The Snapshot® Pro Ferrules are composed of a special, secret and proprietary lightweight formula of Tungsten Carbide and made to exact specifications. Snapshot® Pro Ferrules weigh between 2.0 grams(.071 oz.) and 8 grams(.282 oz.) depending on the size.
9. They produce a very solid hit and feel. Snapshot® Pro Ferrules are designed so that the shaft tenon is extended all the way through the ferrule. The unique thin wall design permits a larger tenon area and allows most of the forces to be transferred from the tip, through the tenon and up through the shaft. Some testers preferred a slightly softer tip than what they were used to. Most players who have tested cues with Snapshot® Pro Ferrules had reservations about how they would perform-until they started to play with them.
10. Replacement guaranteed against manufacturing defects. If you see any flaws we will replace it. No quarantee once installed. SnapshotCues.com will not be responsible in any way for any damages to cuesticks or shafts resulting from installation or use.
