I guess your $75 Smellke is now worth $500.

best,

I have had a couple of dealing with Deanoc, he was always wonderful to deal with. Man who's word was like a verbal handshake.

Like in the good old days when a handshake was better then a contract drawn up by a Harvard Lawyer.

Why would anybody sell a cue that plays this good?

I didn't suggest anyone should sell anything. I have some cheapncues I think are pretty special too.

I am simply really uncomfortable with the tactics going on here. I think they violate the tone of an enthusiast forum for sale section...but they weren't in that section really so I don't know what to think. Its hardly high crimes and misdemeanors but it just offends my sense of community.

Personal protection Mask are selling for crazy prices, people can not even find Elestic to make em.

Don't worry, we're not talking about masks and toilet papers.

You are supposed to sell the "lookers" and keep the "players", don't you know?

The cue business will NEVER be bad enough that these cues hold their "value" unless Dean, Jack, and Schmelke find a cure for cancer, rob banks together, or commit a Manson style Murder. Anybody see that happening?

I like Dean and his posts I just dont agree with this event.

Cant win em all i guess

Boy, this Forum is turning into a bucket of blood joint.

Dean has been promoting pool, the game we all love
or supposedly so, with passion, sincerity and at times,
even a sense of flair. I participated in 2 Schon Tribute
cue projects, the Bushka I and Bushka II projects with
Jerry R. and Bob Owen, and the Design Your Own Cue
project also with Bob. Speaking personally, each project
was entirely fun, exciting and all of the pool cues turned
out wonderful. Iíd do it again in a heartbeat but for the
ivory ban but thatís a horse of an entirely different color.

Dean has also ingenuously come up with the Mystery Cue
offerings and to the best of my recollection, the buyers seem
to be pleased. I donít see complaints about the cues that the
buyers received. Additionally, there werenít issues with the many
tribute cue projects either and the buyers were all pleased. I know
that I am thrilled, even actually proud of the pool cues I still have.

Dean came forth & offered an explanation furnishing the background
behind these Jackpot SP cues and for the price, no one is making a
bundle nor getting screwed. Furthermore, the sale proceeds were for
a significantly important, urgent need. So now people with lots of time
on their hands and little better to do want to criticize a really decent
guy all the while Deanís many former customers remain silent and
unsupportive. Well, not this one & I enjoy reading his threads & posts.

As far as Iím concerned, the Az community is better off because of people
like Dean Campbell and his long history & vast experience with pool, cues,
cue-makers, leather craftsmen, pool table restoration.....the list seems endless.

You're brutal. :D
People who got those TS for $250 or less new and could not resist the temptation of a few dollar profit are kicking themselves now.

Then again I sold my Judd ebony cue and sneaky pete too when I went back to school. :eek:

I don't know. Tell us. I've seen a couple of them go around and around over here, changing hands and I've tried them and could have picked them up relatively cheap.

They didn't play as good as this cue or I would have picked one of them up, when they were for sale.
