I ordered the first generation SS360 a year or so ago. It did take a bit longer than promised to complete, but it was completed as discussed to my specs. I liked the shaft, it hit well, just had a bit more deflection than I was used to or planning for, but that didn't have anything to do with Bob's work.

The only thing I've had that's been close is the Mezz shafts (currently playing with now), they are 1 piece and also have more of that standard shaft hit and feel. I also like the OB Classic series (with ferrule), they place nicely as well.

Would you mind elaborating on which Mezz shaft(s) you use? How it hits? And how it compares against the SS360?

Leland, the last email I received from you was on 4/21/15 where you said "Cool, thanks Bob!" in response to my email about shipping your shaft out. Have no problem sending you the $20.00 but have not received anything from you stating there was a problem. So perhaps you can resend the email as I never received them. Please include your paypal address. I stand behind everything I make and yes, I am and have been behind for some time but have no problem guaranteeing my products and have never refused to talk to someone that had a problem or to figure out how to rectify the situation whether it be a repair or replacement or in a case like yours to pay to have a local repairman do something.

Bob got ahold of me and made it right. I rescind my comments about his customer service. While it's still regretful that my shaft got through his quality control with the damage it had, I also understand that due to circumstances outside his control he was backed up and most likely in a rush to get products out. Mine must have slipped through the cracks. Shit happens, as they say.

I prefer to handle all of my business in writing, where there is a record of what is said.

I got my SS360 shaft last Friday, and so far so good. The wait was a lot longer than initially quoted, but Bob did come through in the end. The quality of the shaft is great, it has a very nice hit like my solid maple Joss shafts, and its easy to get english with it. The shaft matches up perfectly with my Joss cue, the joint diameter is perfect. I got a 12.5mm original SS360, everything else standard except the tip. If I had one complaint, it was that the tip wasn't cut down quite flush with the ferrule for some reason. I was able to fix that myself and all is well.

My, my, isn't social media a great thing.
Karp, I did answer you many times you just did not like my answer. What made you think I would even read your post here? It was not posted to ask a question, it was posted to make me look bad. Thanks, as those unaware of what has transpired probably think I am avoiding you.

I keep email files from all my customers. Your currently contains 99 of them from you. Did I answer them all? No, but a large portion of them including about when your cue would be completed and why I could not give you a firm date. Interestingly over a month before you posted this I sent you an email stating that I would be willing to give your deposit of $200.00 back to you and continue to build your cue. When it was completed I would email you again, along with pics, to see if you still wanted the cue and at that point you could make complete payment. You main response was you did not understand English, what did I mean?

Then about the time you posted this I did exactly that... returned your deposit and told you again I would continue to build your cue. Did you bother to post that? No. So a week later, yesterday, I happen to see your post. Here is some new info for you - I will not be building you a cue, now or any time in the future. Using social media to pressure me into something is totally unacceptable and our relationship is over.

And yes, I am behind. This year has been both a tough one from a personal level as my g/f went through two surgeries and, like everyone else, life happens. Being a one person shop that means that I am pulled away from my work, this last year quite often. Also, this year I was accepted by Seybert's Billiard Supply and now have off the shelf shafts in their online catalog. This order really put other jobs out of wack. Most all of those awaiting items have been very understanding, although I know that each of them eagerly awaits their new cue or shaft. To them a heart felt "Thanks".


The founding fathers set in place a system where every man was King and every President, including George Washington, has worked to take your rights away, to tax you into slavery, to divide you on political/social and economic lines and to make sure you never find out that your ancestors were King for a day.

Bob has been a very bizzy it's sad that people need to blast him and he is a one man show. The bad part we as cue buyers is that cue makers have life outside of cue building. What is it you really want someone that will make a cue in a week ? Or take there time and give you great craftmenship? This post is silly if Bob was a super world famous cue maker, this post would not be here. And to get a cue is made in short time. I say call some other cue maker and see how long it would take?
So Bob makes cues from his one man shop and does a hellva job..

Bob is a hell of the guy.Very kind,responsible and always willing to help.
He builds his cues in one man shop,always responds on emails and does what he says he would.Of course that problems can show up and that delays are possible from time to time but at the end you will always get what you ordered and he will care for you.
