There’s an app for that, Part II

In the “for what it’s worth” category, yesterday someone asked me about the weights of the cues that I used in the break speed study.  I honestly didn’t know, so today I snuck my cues into our laboratory and weighed them.  The results:
(1) Bautista:  19.097 ounces  (15.090 butt, 4.007 shaft)
(2) McDermott:  19.062 ounces (15.704 butt, 3.358 shaft)
Not much difference in weight (the Bautista was slightly heavier), but certainly a difference in breaking performance.  I suspected the Bautista cue would yield higher speeds as the shaft is much stiffer.  Here’s a little picture of the weigh in, if you like pictures…
