Some cues just so rarely come available for sale on the used market though, like Mike Durbin cues for example. There is a cue maker that may not be as well known as the top 10 cues makers, or whatever, but his cues hit amazing, and are super nice, in my opinion.

Probably a long waiting list for a custom build, directly from Durbin too.

I would love to have a Jackpot cue someday. I have heard that they are the best hitting cues ever made.

Book collecting seems very interesting. Just watched the Ninth Gate the other day. Great Roman Polanski film.

Sorry for the NPR post.

Book collecting seems very interesting. Just watched the Ninth Gate again (for the umteenth time) the other day. Great Roman Polanski film.

I always wanted a Southwest. I like the prestige, it's probably not going to be worth it by any stretch of the imagination. I always thought the day I consider myself a real player, I'd buy one as a reward for myself for reaching my goals. The day I finally run 200 in straight pool, or the day my Fargorate reaches 700. Neither seem very likely at the moment. Just as well, I'd suppose, as I don't have the 5k needed, much less 20 years to wait.

I'm a fan of that movie as well. Everyone always rags on it, but I like it.

Mike is a soybean farmer half the year so his wait times can be long. Super nice guy who makes REALLY nice stuff.

not saving currently but would love to own a Black Boar someday

My new cue is a Scotty Cameron putter. Since i got my Mezz w/HP1 shaft and R. Roper extension i'm done lookin at cues. Only cue i'd even consider would be a Garten Bierbower. A friend just got one and its as nice a steel-joint cue as i've ever seen and i've owned a bunch.

Nice! Fortunately, you can get those for about the price of a mid-range McDermott. :smile:

If my golf buddies, who think golf clubs are expensive, ever knew what we pay for a freaking pool cue, they’d throw up! :D

Mine came out of his Design Studio. Just a TAD more $$$ than a Titleist Scotty. Not braggin', just fact.

https://www.scottycameron.com/putter...ct/flowback-5/ About $500. Had a few tweaks done.

I have used the custom shop a number of times. Here are some (not all) of the scottys I use the most. Would be great if cues were in putter price range. Would need a really rare Circle T to touch most cue prices

Currently saving up for a Josh Treadway and a Paul Drexler cue that are being made.
