I would like to share a few pictures of the Trident it is built from the same design as Poseidon but with a leather wrap. There is more pictures and information at J&J Cues.

Holy shiit Pete. That is spectacular. I am not typically a fan of "reverse points." That being said, its hard to nit pick such a stunning work.

This is one of the best cues EVER!
The colors are perfect, the design impeccable.
One of the very best cues ever to grace the pages of the AZB Gallery.
Thanks for sharing!

Everything about this cue is perfect imo. There is plenty of inlays tastefully placed and in keeping balance within the cue. One of the top cues of 2019.

Will, thanks so much for such overwhelming compliments. I had to lengthen the butt sleeve a half inch to fit the design. At first was worried it would not look good but after it was assembled I was relieved. I feel the extra length and space under the points helps the butt layout flow with the forearm layout.

The way the inlays refract matches the colors of the bridges and points perfectly. That could not have been easy to accomplish. Incredible.
