I love my Carolina Custom, but I've got to say the best hitting cues I've ever swung were all Schons! There's just something about their balance and "substantial" feel...for (admittedly high end) production cues, they are the most well built and consistent I've ever seen--and I've seen a lot.

Only about 15 top cuemakers have seen my work.

Ask about the cuemaker, whos been in the hospital for almost 6 months, last name 'kennedy'----

how does his work stack up???

I have been in the carpentry and upholstering and antique restoration business, since i was put to work on a tape-edge machine at the ripe old age of 4 years old. I have been classically trained by a family that has been located in oregon for the last 125 years, in the same location, same building. How many people can claim this!!!

Anyway, only a few know who i am and what i have made, there are a couple of my cues in the smithsonian magazine, along with a select group including a special tutankhmen (sorry for the spelling) special ivory-scrimshawed weston cue!!!

Enough said, i going back to my iv line!!!!

Ps. I am going to get out of here, finally on oct. 17th.

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!
