Wow that sucks. Why not just buy one on the secondary market. There’s always SW cues listed for sale?

You gave a cuemaker your social security number? Or does SS# stand for something else?

if laurie told you that you have a spot then you have a spot,plain and simple.i find it hard to believe that she would not accept early payment since I've been doing that since my first order with them in 1986,Jerry even finished a cue for me early in 1993 because I had prepayed and he wanted to get my cue to me!


I'll take Efren driving a bus full of fillipinos at Daytona over Jimmy Johnson.

She used the excuse of not excepting my money for being as different woods not being available in the future

Sounds like a policy change.

We know woods are getting problematic.

I re-read your post several times.

Where is she lying?

She said "soon"? Did you ask her what soon meant?

In SW time I would guess soon would mean a year or two.

I signed up back around 2002 I think and I guess sort of walked away from my spot. My contact info has changed numerous times since then and I have never contacted them since then.

When SW started taking orders ( notice was posted here on azbilliards) I waited a little bit thinking it would be too long for a cue but after a month I signed up and my wait was still a long ways off 7 years about that said my contact info never changed

I offered to pay upfront the whole price not a partial payment when I talked to her


My thoughts at the time she wouldn’t take my money in advance is that maybe she had customers that payed upfront and ask for their money back.

I don’t think she ever intended to build me a cue because she’s making more money overseas

I have never heard of anyone that can't get along with Laurie Franklin.
Not to mention all the money people have made off of her cues over the years.
If she's doing something to make an extra buck more power to her.

Considering all of the lies that have been told by cuemakers over the years, there is nothing Laurie could do to come close.
I can't even get a straight answer on the ship date after the cue has been ready for weeks.

This thread is going to kill the South West market, new and secondary.
How do you expect Laurie Franklin to sell a pool cue with everyone calling her a liar?
This could create real problems for those poor people in Las Vegas

Scratches head...

It sounds like you think she allowed hundreds of other people in front of you to push your expected start date from 7 years to 12 years (and more)?

Could it be the orders in front of yours took longer than expected?

Iíve seen a few threads on here on the past 2-3 years where the OP got the call his cue is ready to begin construction. If I recall correctly, these people had all been waiting over 10 years.
