    Traditional style builder

    Thanks. I checked out gartens page and he looks like a good choice and the styles I am looking for. I messaged him. I've worked w a few cuemakers that can/will turn cues around in 3-4 months. This includes tascarella.

    Traditional style builder

    Thanks or the responses. I have a few Tascarellas and more on order with them. Top of the heap in my book. Looking for additional cuemakers, Reasonable turnaround and old school design. No strict price requirements. Ian

    Traditional style builder

    Many of the traditional builders seem to have retired. I am looking to have an old school, steel joint with delrin cue built. Any builders on here like to build in that style? Looking for a few month turn around. Thanks, Ian

    60's maple TAD

    I've been searching for a maple TAD with fancy butt. Just got one in the mail. It was built in the 60's with 2 new shafts in 2012 by TAD. Very nice cue.

    Gus Szamboti 70's

    Thanks for sharing numbers. In my area, these 2 would probably be 10x today or more.

    Gus Szamboti 70's

    agree, but that doesn't align with todays prices of a similar cue. @2000$. And to be clear, I feel 2000 is very cheap for such a cue. I am just curious what was different in the 70s that justified such a low price of $135/$600 for a cue? In summary, why were these cues so cheap back then...

    Gus Szamboti 70's

    Hi Hank, both of your example are 5x. That is similar to the math of $135 vs $600. It would be tough to make money today at 600$ for a cue as described. How were cuemakers in the 70s able to make money at the 135$ price? Again, I am sure I am missing an element beyond this calculation...

    Gus Szamboti 70's

    Hi Will, thanks for sharing the info about cue and case prices from the 70s. It seems that cue prices overall have outpaced inflation. If a 4 pointer with veneers was @135$ in the mid 1970s, accounting for rough inflation, that price would only be around 600 today. Richards site shows similar...

    Full Splice Blank collection

    Its great to see the number of cuemakers doing FS w veneers. They have always been my favorite. I got my first blank from prather in 2005/2006 shortly after they started building them w veneers. At that time I was not aware of anyone else building them w sharp return points. Today there are...
