as lifted from the Lambros site

http://www.lambroscues.com/

New shafts may be purchased for any Lambros Cue.
There is no need to send in the cue for any flat faced design,
but we recommend that the customer send his/her "ULTRA" cue in,
so that we can ensure your new shaft is ideally matched .

So Jim, are you going to explain to Mike how he is incompetent
as a cuemaker?

thanks for the update - and thanks for highlighting the fact that
Mike wasn't a hack before - and isn't any better a cuemaker now
- he just has better 'tooling'

I'm not sure this is for me, but since I'm JimBo I'll assume. First I don't
know what you are referring to, many cuemakers use the same joint diameter so
that they can fit shafts to the cues without the cue. If they care about how
the cue plays though some will weigh shafts and do other tests to make sure the
2 shafts are close in characteristics so they play the same. Also if a cue is
ordered extra long then IMO it should not be the same size at the joint. A cue
that is 57" should have a different size or it will be a bit whippy, again
that's my opinion. I would also like to add that I like cues that have shafts
that have matching rings to the cue, not just a black ring, not that this
changes anything I am sure with a picture or description the cue maker can
match a shaft. IMO none of this makes a cue maker a hack, some just pay
attention to details more then others, and I think matching shafts is that one
extra step that makes the great ones great.

Jim <----Doesn't remember calling someone a hack because he had a set diameter
size at the joint.

PS I happen to like Mike L and spent some time at his shop a few months ago.
