    Got a call, new player

    My daughter said some lady called, something about a pool cue! Now I’m enjoying my new satin South West. Cue plays nicely and I’m a sucker for simplicity!

    Multiple inexpensive cues

    All sold, except the Joey, I couldn’t part wit it! One left, the Meucci is pretty rare, it’s almost straight! Lower prices and all OBO. I’d rather not go to eBay, so send me an offer! Multiple cues for sale. With the exception of the Bollman (can’t get used to the OB ferrule), they play...

    David Brainard cue

    I had wanted to try a 60” cue and after a couple of good reviews of David’s cue I gave him a call. The cue is came out great and David built it exactly as I requested. Painless process and I couldn’t be happier with results. Birdseye and Amazon Rosewood.

    Huebler Custom Shop

    Someone bumped the thread about Mr. Huebler’s passing and it got me thinking about his work. Here is a photo of some of the cues that came out of the Custom Shop. The cues span from 1986-98, and I’ve enjoyed shooting with all of them.

    Step back to 1988

    Here’s a little trip back. A Huebler from 1988. I bought this many years ago on Craigslist. It was in Florida, and after talking to the guy on the phone I decided to take a chance. He said he was a retired NYC police office and I sent him some money, he didn’t do PayPal. Plays great, 4 shafts...

    GTF 2x4 case

    SOLD My loss is your gain, pocket is too short for my freakishly long jump cue handle. Case is as new, never left the house. Pretty firm on the price, I like the case and could always get a new jump cue. Added photos showing small blemishes or scuffs. I had to look to find them.

    Well used Huebler

    Haven’t had many Hueblers posted lately. This one is well used, but is still fun to shoot with. The shafts are pretty thin and it ought to be refinished, but for now it’s all good.
