Thanks eric, I just got on SW list so I can Have one for my sixtieth bithday in 10 years. In the meantime a friend just started work with Mike Lambros, and he is local, so I think I will go that route for a now.
Have fun, Dave
i do have a 60" SW that I bought new in 86, I will never sell that cue-its family you understand.
I have a couple other 60" cues but nothing really forsale. My advice for you, and I consider this solid advice-if your going to play with it have the cue built for you. Pick a cue maker figure out what you want and build it-thats what I did with that SW. The reason I suggest this because there are not lots of 60" cues for sale. Or perhaps you want 60.5" or 59.5" or 59" when you build a cue to play with you can dial it in to what you want. If your looking for a cue to collect and use now and then; in that case shop around for something thats already to go.
thats how I see it, one disadvantage to that is when you have a cue made it might not play good when you get it, thats happened to me more than once. So if you find a used or new 60" cue you can test drive that's not a bad plan either. but I like the idea of building a cue the best.
there are similar hitting cues to SW's(I cant remember who rite now-i will find out) but still not as good. Save your$$ and buy a SW, I got myu first one in 87 its worth about 8-9times what I paid for it. you cant lose buying a SW right. I have friends who have been using them for 20+ years and never changed cues. They areamonth the best players period
they both twist their wrist in naturally, its just coincidental-I asked JA about that, it works and is real hard to do, JA said it came natural to him(what didnt) sorry to take almost a year to get back to you/
this is your eletronic Christmas card, I'm sending it to all my friends here and other people I dont know(yet), I'm in the Christmas Spreait this year!!! And want to share that gret feeling with my friends and pool player I havent met yet!!! 09 was a brutal year for all of us, so a litle joy now is what the Dr. ordered!!!
