I had one that was better, also from a competent maker.

I was a little surprised to see that it's one of Paul's cues. Everything he makes is top notch but you're right... it is a little "unusual"

Looks like something I coughed up after 3 packs of cig's and a case of beer.

One persons rose is another persons weed. While it's not something I would be caught carrying around I'm sure there's someone out there that would love to own this little gem.

I kinda like it, it is different but maybe thats why I like it. It can't be the ugliest cue, JMO

Man, I would love to start an ugliest cue thread gallery, but I think it might offend too many people involved.

It'd still be cool, though. Maybe I could blur out the signatures...hmm..

(OH, btw, I actually kinda like that cue. Would I spend a grand on it, uhhh, no.)

it's that damn green stain! But it sure did make that handle look cool. Maybe if all the other woods were ebony.

That combo is rough on the eyes. I am generally a fan of being different, but that is a bit much.

Well, the page states that there will never be another one made...

Thankfully! :p

Here's the quote from the listing:

"IT'S THE ONLY ONE IN THE WORLD LIKE IT AND THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER ONE!"

I agree with you and i'd hate to think a cue maker would waste their time making 2 of those! I'm sure there's someone out there in the pool world who would like it, but it's sure not me.

To each their own, I guess. I think it's beautiful. Beautiful woods. Beautiful workmanship.

I dated a ugly woman one time that reminded me of that cue.In fact
if everyone finds out how good that cue hits .....they will all want one.:eek:

In all seriousness though its really unique .If it was a red wood instead of
green it would be gone .

Years ago I had a body shop. When things were very slow I picked up an old pick-up truck that should have been melted down for scrap just to keep my crew busy. With a few gallons of bondo, some screen wire, galvanized sheet metal, and a little wood topped off with a couple gallons of premium paint I turned the truck into a thing of beauty. When finished it sat there and glowed.

My foreman asked what were we going to do with it? A good question, I didn't want it associated with my name or shop. There was a used car auction down in Thibodaux where the dealers all got drunk and crazy while bidding on stuff. I told Danny, "We'll haul if down to Thibodaux and let the drunks bid on it!"

Maybe E-Bay is Dayton's Thibodaux Auto Auction.

Chances are if you forgot and left it behind at the poolhall, it will still be there when you return.

I dub thee "The Ugly Stick"

Last month on eBay there was an Alex Brick Cue made of Bacote and Pink Ivory with Green Veneers ... Now THAT cue would definitely still be there when you came back ...

Well, all you dillweeds don't know a great looking cue when you see it. I absolutely love it. I wish I had a grand. How'd you like to get beat by a guy sportin' that baby? Throw in my flourescent pink case and a Hawaiian shirt, and my Florida retiree sunglasses and throw me to the wolves. If I could grow my hair like David Trest and Voila!

I have to agree with Roger...to each their own.
I think the green marbled look is cool. I like the colors.:thumbup:

I have ever seen.

Just don't tell anyone that Ernie at Ginacue used that same impregnated material. He has all kinds of different colors in a drawer!!

Well I like it but not $1000 like it. Maybe if I hit the jackpot :)

I like that cue, not for the price they want, but it isnt the worst cue IMO. I'd name it "The Green Monster".

Priced at a grand, that is an ugly cue.


It would look a lot better to me if it was on sale for $400.

Reminds me of the old Meucci joke. Wrap a $20 around the handle and leave it outside the pool hall. Check on it later, the $20 will be gone and the cue will still be there.
On the upside, it would make a great camo cue if you were playing in the rain forest.

What was that cue maker thinking??? I'll be surprised if that sells at any price.

That actually looks to be a well made cue and may be far more attractive when looking at it instead of pictures. Asking a starting bid of $1000 seems a bit steep for what is pictured and is no doubt leading to a lot of the humor.
