    Authorized Tim Scruggs repair

    Authorized meaning Tim Scruggs approved work. Not everyone can use his logo and that is an important factor for the finished cue. As far as history, i haven't seen this particular cue in the Scruggs catalog, so i believe it may be custom. This is the only scruggs i have used, so are all Scruggs...

    Cut the 2 to lower right corner placing the cb above the 3, then go for a 3/9 combo. Game over!! Now I know some might think this is a horrible choice of shots, but I belive it is a very makeable shot.
