    Manzino

    It was a pleasure dealing with Bob. I asked him to make me a player with Brazilian Rosewood and he delivered. By far not his fanciest cue, but it still speaks volumes of his attention to detail and execution. A great twist on a hoppe cue.

    Meucci promoting top players

    Rambling thoughts I just watched the Kevin Chen interview and I wanted to commend Meucci for helping out some current players as Kevin is considering (not sure if it happened already) playing with a Meucci. I am pretty sure these guys can adjusted to any cue because they have raw talent and...

    Good Cause Raffle - Ron Gravel

    I didn't personally know Ron Gravel and I have only been to Diamond Billiard room once but the tragic and senseless passing of Ron bothered me. I figured it would be worth a try to raise some money here for his family and reached out to Alton (CueCaps) and asked if he would work with me in a...

    My First Tad

    I have been interested in TAD cues since the late John Wright sent me photographs when I first got into cues. I knew I had to own one day and the timing was right when I located a late 70s early 80s cue that caught my attention. At first I was hesitant to buy it since the Tad logo was not on...

    Why are some cuemakers ( * )'s

    I have purchased many cues throughout the years. Not the most and I know I have not spent the most. But some of the rants on these threads makes sure that I will never order a cue or buy one second hand from some cue makers. This includes some dealers who have a personal agenda to promote...

    Brazilian Beauty -R-

    I always loved Hoppe cues and fell in love with Brazilian Rosewood after my first taste of Rosewood on Rosewood. Since that day, I have decided all cues I commission will have a Rosewood on Rosewood theme. After seeing some of the work posted on Jerry Rauenzahn cues I decided to reach out to...
