    Mountain Man Has Passed Away...

    I just got word that Mountain Man passed away on Thursday. I don't know any details, other than the fact that he had Pancreatic Cancer. I guess it got the best of him. He lasted a lot longer than the Dr.'s gave him. This is a sad time :( Jon

    What do you think?

    Hello, I'm just wondering what you guys think of this combo. Bocote Front/sleeve (most likely will have some VEE-Points of some configuration.) With a nice Straight-Grained Kingwood handle. I love the looks of both woods, and i know bocote hits great, and am told that kingwood is the same...

    Cleaning and Refinishing...

    I have a cue here (it's mine...) that is really dirty (butt and shaft). It's a Les Blevins Sneaky, with natural phenolic collars (.250") at the joint, and a .625" natural phenolic butt cap. I'll need to replace all of the phenolic, the ferrule (probably will go with Ivor-x), clean the pin up...

    I just want some opinions here, What is the overall opinion off Micarta Ferrules??? How do they hit/feel compared to the thermoset ferrules (aegis II, Ivorine-3, LBM) or ivory, and are they best attached sleeved, threaded, threaded/capped??? Thanks Jon

    Meucci ferrule repair...

    Just a quick question/thought... A friend of mine plays with a Meucci (I know, sad) and the rubber tree now has a vibration when hitting off center and we switched the shaft and butt with another Meucci (that place was crawling with 'em) and was sure it wasn't in the butt, and I told him I...
