    One more? Bocote and Curly Kielwood

    This one looks amazing in person. Nice, simple and classy ringwork....for me, it's normally let the wood do the talking so ringwork has to hit me right or else, skip it.

    And one more Schmelke with Kielwood and Curly Maple

    This one turned out great! I like a 29 inch butt and a 30 inch shaft with a long, almost straight taper between 17-19 inches. Another one that the rules were, keep it simple and let the wood do the talking

    Schmelke Kielwood shafts

    Just sharing for those who may want to try a Kielwood shaft without sticker shock. I had David at Schmelke build me two kielwood 30 inch Radial shafts with a long taper like the Jacoby Black has and 3/8 inch ferrules. They did so at a 12.4mm tip diameter. The shafts came out great and i...

    Decola or Dicola or both?

    Forgive my ignorance here, I've seen both Decola and Dicola cues listed for sale. Are we talking two different cue makers or is it simply a spelling issue?

    nsafellow, anyone heard anything from him recently?

    I made a purchase that turned out to have issues that were not mentioned in the sale thread. I contacted him here via pm and offered to send pics. He gave me his phone number to text him pictures. He has not responded to my text, my call or my pm's since I sent him the pics. The man has over 300...

    Super sneaky with OB shaft

    I have a mint condition super sneaky available. It plays as good as anything I've ever owned. It's made from a Schmelke blank, straight grain dark rosewood into straight grain maple. There is no joint collar. When it's screwed together it's very difficult to see the joint at all. The finish is a...

    Need a rules interpratation please

    Team 8 ball tourney this past weekend. VENA rules were used. No coaching is allowed. One of the players has run down to the 8 ball and is about to shoot it in for the win. Another guy on his team approaches the table and stops the shooter mid-stroke. He tells him he still has the 1 ball left...

    In search of a dark blue lizard or leather wrap

    Anyone have one you just couldn't find a use for? Has to be on the darker side. Some black is fine as long as blue is the primary color. Lizard would be my first choice. Thanks!

    In search of a dark blue or a blue and black lizard wrap

    Looking high and low. If need be I can look at a textured leather wrap in a darker shade of blue. I have a new Summit cue set being built and the shooter would look great with a blue wrap to go along with the ring work. I checked with the usual wrap selling suspects and so far the only one I've...
