I wanted to take a minute and write a review on my new Scott Gracio cue I recently received. Since he is still a 'new' cue maker on the scene I figured there would be people out there curious to know how his cues are.
Let me start by saying he is a really nice guy to deal with. He was good with communication and something I thought was very cool was that he actually wanted to know how I play. Not just what I want in a custom cue.. but how I play. What games.. what style.. how do I USE my cue. Rep point for that!
I won't say what I paid for my cue but I will say his prices are very fair. However, I know his prices are going up soon. And rightly so.. supply and demand!
OK.. the cue Scott made for me is a wrapless cue. Maple forearm and buttsleeve with an Amboyna burl handle. Here is a link to some pics of the cue in progress:
