Personally, I think TW's Purple Reign was a no-brainer. That cue is AWESOME.

Thanks again Jaime. Always fun to see these threads each year.

Congratulations to Thomas Wayne. IMO, Purple Reign is one of his finest to date. Iíve seen this cue in person and it truly is stunning. It was hard to set that cue down since there is so much to admire. I found the veneer points inside the ivory to almost give the illusion of never really ending, they are that sharp. His work continues to push the envelope and that is refreshing. Iím anxious to see what he'll give us next.

Thanks for another great year Jamie. The entries were all fine examples of both traditional and modern design. All should be proud.

As a last note, Iím happy to see Ned Morrisí cue make the list. This is another cue Iíve seen up close and can attest to the beauty and workmanship. Itís good to see him back. A great guy and cue maker as well.

With all the talent, The COTY is getting harder and harder to choose.
So many catagories that each cue has it's strong points.
Unbelievable splicing, Intricate /detailed CNC Inlay works,
new initiative designs/looks..

Congrats to Thomas, Kenny and Pete .
In actuality, they are all winners, it their own ways..
Thanks Jamie... As always, thanks for all you do...

Congratulations to Thomas on the win. Both cues are technically and artistically great .

I still like the crazy handle Tokin the best.

I also think its great that Darrin Hill showed real strong with two cues. A testament to how good his work can be and how much talent he has.

Amazing cues this year..........congrats to TW (so much talent).

I want to also say that Pete Tonkin has come so far over the last 5 years. The cues he's done for Tikkler are amazing. I'm working with him right now on a cue for me I think is goona be pretty sweet.

Thanks to Jamie for doing this,
JimmyK
