Every Layani cue is warranted against any manufacturing problems that do not result from warping or abuse. This warranty only covers the original purchaser of the cue.
The conical joint a precise system that gives a very solid feel. Its unique feedback tells you when you hit the ball correctly. With the Layani conical joint technology, all shafts are interchangeable. This means you can use a pool shaft on a carom butt and a carom shaft on a pool butt.
The conical joint is designed to have a perfect fit and the cone area is where the surface contact is made between the shaft and the butt. The small gap or ridge that is between the shaft and the aluminum joint when the cue is assembled is normal as there should be no contact in this area for the conical joint to work properly. This is because the contact needs to happen on the conic surface, and not on the edges.
To clean your Layani shaft, use a towel slightly dampened with rubbing alcohol and remove the oils and chalk that are on your shaft. Once your shaft is clean, use a leather burnisher or a shaft-sealing product such as wood wax to seal the shaft wood and protect it from moisture. Avoid using abrasive materials that will sand the shaft down over time and alter its taper.
Do not expose your cue to excessive moisture and temperature changes as wood can shrink and expand and these changes can potentially damage your cue. To prevent finish or warpage problems, store your cue upright or in a protection case, in an environment that has stable humidity and temperature levels.
The conical joint uses precise tolerances for a perfect fit and the cone surface needs to stay clean to benefit fully from its solid feel and great sound. To take care of it in a proper way, periodically clean the two parts of the joint with a soft cloth and rubbing alcohol in order to remove the dust and dirt that could accumulate on the inside surface and on the male cone. This way, you will always get a perfect fit and a perfect hit every time and your cue will always be easy to take apart.
Please take a look at our Cue Specifications section to see the Layani shaft options available. It is also possible to have a Predator shaft fit with a conical joint, if you prefer ultra-low deflection shafts.
Our carom cues and pool cues are built exactly with the same Cored construction and conical joint technologies. What distinguishes a carom cue from a pool cue is mainly the configuration of the shaft (see the Cue Specifications section) and the balance of the butt. Carom shafts are shorter than pool shafts, and a carom butt is slightly thinner and also lighter (13-14 oz or 370-400 gr) than a pool butt that is thicker towards the butt cap. This means that if you wish to play both games it is possible to use the same butt with a pool shaft and a carom shaft.
Any model can be made for carom or pool on request.
