Which Kingwood? The hard to find expensive beautiful stuff (Brazilian) or the super hard to find super expensive super beautiful stuff (Mexican aka camatillo)?

Either one will do./
Got some camatillos too.
More red than the Braz kind. Pretty wood.

Turns brown on a cue but bleeds purple freshly cut. Which is a problem if there is any light colored wood near by. And it's unstable as hell. Coring only please.

Not a big fan of this wood. If I want a brown finished wood there are a lot of better choices.

I'm glad you posted the picture of the Kingwood butt. I would've thought that to be Rosewood.

Kingwood is a rosewood (both species).

There's no finish on that kingwood so it looks a bit bland but it is not.

Stupid pin question here,. If you have a forearm wood with great tone, which 3/8-10 pin would you use to maintain that sound? I was told that a stainless pin will mute the sound and a g10 would not. Any truth to that?

Why did the old time master cue makers use straight grain maple almost exclusively?
Were exotic woods too expensive or did they think they were no good?


Playing cue- The Mighty Lucasi Cocobolo
Back up cue - Troy Downey

I woke up.
Triangles tips and Masters chalk are good enough.
