Just In 40's Willie Hoppe Conversion By Pete Tascarella - 02-08-2018, 08:38 PM

Made from a 40's Willie Hoppe cue that was a special 58" cue with longer points
My intent was to have this cue resemble an old Titlist Balabushka, only full splice.
Pete Tascarella did a remarkable job making it come together exactly as I envisioned it to be only better

Bad A$$ cue brother Pete knows his stuff
Only thing I would have done different (if it were mine) is

I bet it plays jam up to
Thanks for sharing

The wrap groove was already there so I didn't change it.
The other Tascarella i got today has the old school green spec linen

"Russian Magic Chalk- good enough to steal".

Russian Magic chalk is the nuts.
Its so good my last and only cube was stolen off the table when I went to the bath room.
They left my $1000 cue but stole my chalk, how strong is that?

We see lots of new designs or twists on designs, but for me the classics are always my favorite. I'm a sucker for a will done Titlist! Beautiful cue.
