Snooker Cue repairs

I have been playing 9 ball with my Snooker Cue. The obvious has happened, the 6mm tip and ferrule broke off, just below the ferrule. It looks nasty. Does anyone know any Cue repairers in Switzerland ? I guess I can put an 8mm ferrule and tip back on, after losing some length down to where the cue is 8mm etc.

It's a Tamar 2 piece quick release cue. I have had it for over 9 years and it has served me well, apart from costing a bloody fortune, I would not like to have to replace it.

I have tried the Shop link and number from Pot Bellys , but as usual, I never get an answer nor do I expect one.

If you can take it down to 11mm, I have a replacement brass Ferrule set with 3 screw on 11mm tips. I've also got some plastic push on 10mm tips from Riley which may help in the interim whilst you seek a pro repair job.

Billiardino, who house the cue, sent it away for repairs. It has come back as good as new. CHf84.

Chuffed to bits.
