    I just received my new cue from Allen, and I am shocked I haven't heard more about him. Now that I have it in hand, I felt that it might be nice to do a review. First of all, execution on the cue is excellent. The quality of construction is...

    New Schön diamond inlay?

    I needed to replace a Schön that I had sold, with a new one. I ordered a CX04, and it came Friday. As I expected, a few things were different than illustrated, and I appreciate that.
