    Default bringing down butt diameter

    Dear KJ,

    I have a predator p2 cue. I want to have the butt diameter turned down to match the ikon series cues.
    Is that doable? If yes, will you need to change the steel butt cap or can you adjust the butt cap as well?

    One last thing, if you turn it down, will you need to repaint the butt (it's charcoal color right now)

    Thank you very much..

    Hello and Thanx for your inquiry,

    Actually, you've touched on all of the reasons why this would not be a good idea to do, IMO. Anything is doable but in the end, would it be worth it?

    The stainless steel butt-cap may be lost in the modification. I haven't had one of these butt-caps off so I don't know what the wall thickness is of the metal.

    The matching of the stain would be tricky at best. You've only got one chance to get it right the first time.

    Then there is the cost. The cue would require a complete re-finish after cutting and staining. If there is a wrap involved, that also would be an additional cost.

    What I'm leading up to is that it may just be more cost effective to buy a cue that already has the dimensions you're seeking and sell the P2. The stock P2 is a cue that is still in great demand. Modified as you suggest, maybe not so much.

    At least this will give you something to think about.
    At Your Service,
    KJ

    Thanks for your quick response KJ.

    I know that selling the P2 and getting a new ikon seems at least much more practical but the thing is I just love the p2 for several reasons.
    first of all i think it has a unique solid hit. the wrap is much closer to the buttcap which i like coz i tend to grab the cue almost from the end. I also dont like fancy inlays on a cue.

    But what I like about the new ikon or blak series is that the butt is thinner and feels better.

    The buttcap and the stain color is a risk I would take. In fact I wouldn't mind having to replace the buttcap either.

    The only question is the cost and I have already asked Cary from seyberts to get me a quotation. If I can afford it I'll definitely have this done now that you say it is doable

    Thanks again
