I am going to look at a Bill Hoyt custom cue friday that has 4 points,pig skin wrap,linen fiber joints, and mild ring work and 3 shafts with matching ring work. Also comes with a case don't know anything about the case, the guy said it had the pockets full of tools and stuff.

I do know the history behind the cue it was made for a local guy that is kinda famous around here for his playing back in the day. but i still would not bet against him playing anyone on a bar table. I will post his name friday after i go look at the cue. I was told the cue is in great condition because it was his playing cue and he took care of it.

How much should I pay for this package deal?

Also does anyone play with a hoyt cue?

Thats most definitely Calvins old stick!, I'd know that stick anywhere.
Calvin had Bill Hoyt make it for him back in the early to mid-90's, it was priced around $850.00 back then, the pig skin wrap was put on because Calvin has the sweatiest hands of anyone and the pig skin absorb the moisture best, the shafts were originally 13 mm, but Calvin always liked to give-um a work out with the sand paper...lol

The best thing is the story behind the cue & case. We have a cue & case that was Scotty Townsends and if that sucker could talk think about the stories it could tell. I think it is a great buy for $250 you can always get a new shaft to play with. Good luck with it regards

Thats a bunch of crap to fit in one case. I will buy everything from you for $100 if you want to sell it. Lucky A$$ - what a steal!!!
