Help With Wrap Color Please - 09-13-2019, 10:05 AM

Well, I am far from being color coordinated so I'd love to hear some suggestions.

I'm going to have a cue rewrapped, and have no clue as to what will look good. I'm not really sure what the wood is, but I think it's Macassar Ebony? If anyone is sure of the wood, I'd love to know.

Thanks in advance.

I'd suggest keeping it black. Less cleaning necessary.

White/green linen or a textured leather very close in color to the short maple section.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

I appreciate all the recommendations thus far. I also thought it was Bacote at first, but seems too dark brown/black. Whatever it is, it hits a ton and plays very much like my beloved Southwest that I had to part with. This one is not going anywhere!

Looks like Kingwood.
White with brown specs get my vote as well.
Cork wrap would be killer too.
