My Gracio cue - 05-06-2009, 09:46 PM

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:

Two almost ready

Specs are:
Butt:
*Length: 29"
*Weight: 15.3
*Butt Diameter: 1.244
*Joint Diameter: .0854
*Joint type: Flat faced 3/8x10 brass pin
Note: pin length is 1 1/4" long
*Wrap: Amboyna burl

Shaft:
*Length: 29"
*Weight: 3.6
*Tip Diameter: 12.80mm
*Ringwork: Thick Amboyna ring between brass rings

I lucked out that he had the woods I wanted in stock so my wait time wasn't bad at all. Shipping was fast and the cue was very well packed.

Pulling it out of the BLANKET... the cue is absolutely perfect. The finish is flawless and the shaft is super bright and clean. Fantastic grain in the shaft and a very nice taper also. The woods he used are highly figured and just awesome pieces. The overall design is simple and very well balanced. The brass rings really match up nicely to give the cue an overall warmth to it.

OK.... now the best part of the cue.. the hit. I could easily just say it hits good. But that would be an understatement. The cue hits GREAT! Like a very solid 1 piece cue. And not overly stiff. If the cue looked like crap I would still recommend it based on the hit alone. Really.

Thank you Scott for all your hard work and effort to satisfy a customer. I can say without hesitation that if you stick to what you're doing.. you will no doubt go on to be one of the greats.

I'll post up some updated pics soon.

Bring both cue by the house. I want to test hit few balls with. I have never got a chance to hit with Mr. Gracio cue before.

Zach.. awesome cue! My buddy Pat has a Gracio Titlist conversion that is similiar in design. I really like his new stuff and his traditional work as well. Thanks for sharing your pics.

Oh, and great looking website by the way!
