He is a player too.

I was told that he is a perfectionist also, about the work that he does on his cues.

That doesn't look good for me, I'm going to be gone way before you sir.

I have the cues I want and have "thinned the herd" down to my keepers.

The only cue I would pick up would be a Kersenbrock. Seldom see them for sale.

If I had to sell all my cues, the last cue I would sell would be my Schick, of all my cues it is my favorite by far.

Currently play with a base Pechauer but really like the looks of the JP17-Q.

I think the price point matches my skill level but who knows. Does it really matter?

No, it doesn't matter. All it takes to own a fine cue is the ability to write a check. I mean, do you think all Ferrari owners are skilled drivers?

By the way, your Pechauer is a darned good cue to play with...built very well.

(edit) I'm not saving for a cue. Once I got a Josey, I quit thinking about buying another cue. But then, I'm not an addicted to collecting guy.
Not that there is anything wrong with collecting as long as it remains harmless...doesn't take food from the table. If you want to do it, and can afford it, go for it if that's your thing.

Maybe the best playing cue I ever had was one made for me by Richard Black back in 1978.

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 am not in the market, so I don’t have a wish list. But if I had a list, Mike Durbin would probably be in my top 10. I have had the opportunity to hit a few balls with two of his cues and I wanted to own both of them. Great playing cues and quality workmanship.

There's one DPK up for grabs: https://forums.azbilliards.com/showthread.php?t=512758

I'm saving for a Jerry Franklin Southwest, have hit with one and the best hitting cue I've ever tried. And I've tried a few other SW's as well. The problem is that I need a 60" cue, and not many of them available. Had one offered to me some time ago but didn't have the funds at that time unfortunately.

Also I'm currently on the waiting list for a Bluegrass cue but wouldn't expect any progress soon.

The only cue I want is a 4 point ebony into ebony Tascarella. I’d sell every other cue I own to have one.

Sticking with my Schön R10 as my player for now.
