Most expensive and not even some good old ivory? Weighs in @ 9.5 lbs lololol. Guess would be a hell off a break cue! Someone over at McDermott definitely has the good stuff😊. Id swear I've seen a cue for sale for more, like for a quarter million somewhere or something like that. It does say made in 1992 so maybe it was at that point. It's 63" so this would've been just the cue for Earl.

I had one just like that but I had to sell it to pay for a Eliminator Cue I bought on eBay.
I bought it from you "J".
I payed you $29 including shipping.

I've seen that elsewhere. Does it come with a case? I can't imagine what the case looks like.

I remember seeing that cue on a poster (I think) way back in the mid 90's. I remember the thing weighed a ton (maybe like 13 pounds, but I forget). From my memory, I thought they originally had it priced at $250,000. I thought it looked cool. I knew it was purely art (not a playing cue, lol).

I have hit a few balls with that cue.....to say it hits a ton....is right on. The case is a big box thing made by O'Neill or Yanez. The knife maker was very well known and the cue was on the cover of Guns and Knives magazine.

No, Who was on First. Why bought it, poor guy was only 50, his wife was very upset at the funeral.

playing with that cue is not too hard, its playing in that suit of armor that takes some getting used to........

I don't know, we may be looking at the final evolution of Earl there. That poster just predicted the future. I'd worry about the axe end and the table cloth on your follow through

Disclaimer: I like Earl, and he is, like SVB said, a genius when it comes to pool, but how can you not poke a bit of fun at his weights? ;)

The rules specify the cue must weigh under 24 oz.

I think it would make a good skewer for lamb and beef for the popular Greek rotisserie Giro dish. Can't imagine playing pool with it.

All the best,
