hi chuck. my name is anthony gailes. i've watched and seen your cues on az and love the feedback on them and love the way the look. and i like your idae of using no ferrulle. i have a cue that was made ine the phillipines that i custom designed and that took a year to make and cost me 600 dollars. its a very nice cue and full of ivory. was wondering if you would be willing to trade a a starkey for what i have?
