Paid a pretty penny for this bad boy and I must say it was worth it. This is the last one of seven made, and they will never make another Love the cue, it truly hits like a dream. Balance is incredible. Like most Schon cues it screws together very tightly, I like that. The black monkey wrap feels great in the hands and seems to feel better the more I use it. The ivory inlays are magnificent and the abalone shell just pops. The BEM forearm looks much better than the pictures suggests. The points could be sharper, but it's really hard to find anything else to complain about here.
