I got a "full splice" cue from this gypsy and it was a cheap production cue I think he had made in a Chinese factory. It took two weeks to arrive, it was not the right weight I specified, it had a wrap I didn't want, the tip is total junk, the inside of it is completely cored out and hollow, so it clinks like crazy, and the wood is cheap. I noticed the veneers look to be painted, as does the rings near the pin and butt. It cost me only around $125, but it hits like $5. I urge you people to avoid Robert Wayne Cues on eBay. They're crap.

You have to admit his attention to detail is spectacular... He even painted on the glue lines in the veneers!!!!

This looks to be a full splice blank he probably got from Duc as a Predator second....

Just remember one thing: Cue Builder > Cue Assembler!!

Ah, because he forgot which User name he was signed on under in the original post (he posted as a 'buyer' with his real 'seller's' name as the AZB Member user, so he went back and edited it to reflect that he was the Seller ) :)

Send me one of your RW cues to check out on your nickel. I will be completely impartial and cover every aspect of measurement, woods, composition materials, etc. photograph it, and even do a video of it being played with by a local pro or two with their comments on how it hits. Wanna end this argument? geterdone! . When done, If I like it I will buy it. If not, I will ship it back unmolested.

In the auction ad it states to specify the weight, etc, when you pay for it. In the page when the order is being processed by paypal there is an area for "instructions to the seller" and I put those instructions in there specifically and have a copy of that transaction on my paypal account which is proof I can furnish if anyone doesn't believe me. I was very very clear on how I wanted the cue delivered. I had a friend who is like 63 yrs old, and has played pool for over 40 years, and has played with just about everything, and he didn't think the cue was any good either. The tip is like a piece of glass, it makes a ton of noise, it vibrates out of your hand with a loose grip, and with the weight of like 17.5 oz the balance is way out of whack. I am going to change the weight myself, the tip, and have a wrap put on it to see if it makes a difference. If not, it'll just be a house cue. It might sound dumb to put anymore money into the cue, but sometimes a few small changes do make a difference. The cuemaker should have shot with the thing before he shipped it, and he would've known if he is any kind of pool player that it hits strange and really throws the ball. It almost creates a jump shot masse effect when the cueball is near the rail. I've never miscued so many times, or had to use a tip tool so many times. The ferrule doesn't even fit the diameter of the shaft, and the ink from one of the rings looks like it kinda bled off the edges of the ring when the finish was put on. It looks like paint.
