I have lusted after that cue since first seeing it in a magazine 20 years ago!!!!

I have a Davis blank going together NOW after all these years.

SOOOOOOOOOOO good to finally see her again.

Stunning Bushka - 01-01-2009, 07:10 PM

Paul,
That's a stunning Balabushka cue. The three Szamboti shafts look to be the longer shafts; am I correct? And why didn't you use it more?

Best Regards and have Happy and Healthy New Year,

Hal

P.S. Please keep me in mind if you ever want to sell it.


Name: Hal
Pool cues: Balabushka, G. Szamboti, B. Szamboti, Tascarella
Cue cases: Fellini, Centennial and Justis

Favorite game: Straight pool

Time is too valuable for a cheap watch

Very nice looking cue with some history as well.
You do maintain everything in pristine condition.

Christ!!!, I was mistaken in my last post. This is the absolute pinical of cues. I'd rather have this cue than a loaded 8pt Gus. the only compairable cue in the world would be a 8pt GSB.

Should you ever decide to sell this, i will come bigger than any other offers! thank you. 702-241-8000.

There is no doubt in my mind that someday I will find a cue like this on the market! Man oh Man. That day cant come soon enough,
