    Cue maker signatures

    One of the main reasons I just sold my Jensen cue. Mike's signature was a turn-off from the day I received it. And, why add quotes around a date? ("2019")

    Questions about stroke...

    First, a little about me. So, I'm not a complete slouch on the table. I bounce between an 8 & 7 APA 9ball, and I'm a 7 APA 8ball. I'd say a C+ player; I'm a threat to run out, have had several in-match. Now to my question: how does one develop the type of stroke wherein it never appears as...

    WH Micarta rounds/ferrules

    FS: Vintage Westinghouse paper micarta rounds/ferrules. I've sold a good bit of this stuff here and on FB, mainly in blocks.

    Who's building prongs?

    Anyone besides Prather building prongs, nowadays? Anyone in here interested? My father is building some nice cues, lately; but, he is not equipped for points just yet. I'd like to find a 4pt prong with veneers in my favorite colors from which he could build me a cue. He's built a few Prather...

    Jackpot Cues

    Just received this rep message: Because a new builder either wouldn't know or wouldn't care about the movement of wood. Have you watched the videos of KCC hogging off inches of wood per pass on his mill? Secondly, everyone who HONESTLY purchased a jackpot cue was scammed. I rest well, thank...
