I don't know how long he has been making them but I have been making these for over 8 years. I was also making dymondwood playing cues back in the 90's when it was know as pakawood. When I moved to Nashville in 2001 I went to work for my Father-in-law and only made a few cues on the side. I then took over for Joe Blackburn at JOB Billiard Club and started repairing cues and making a few cues in my spare time. It was at this time I started making jump/breaks and jump cues out of dymondwood.

On the early cues I used a Unilock quick release alum jump pin with the Uniloc quick release insert. I quit that when I found that the insert pulled out because of the fine thread and would not hold in dymondwood very well. I also used aluminum radial pin for the joint.

When I found the 3/8 x 10 308 pin a few years ago I changed to these as now you could screw the shaft onto the butt to get an extention.

I only sold in the Nashville area until a few years ago when people from out of town would come to tournaments and buy one and take it back to their area. I have even had people come back and buy several and then take back to their area to sell. I never even thought about going on line to sell until recently as word of mouth has done quite well I also got most of the problems worked out of the cues.

Several years ago a couple of Artistic pool playes came to JOB's and I showed them my jump cue and how it worked. They were amazed at how easy it jumped and they could put a cue in both hands and jump one handed with ease. I sold a couple of cues that night. I remember them asking if I had a patent on the dymondwood jump cue. I told them I was not doing anything special other than making a jump cue with dymondwood and could not see a reason or a way to patent this product. I also made one of the gentlemen a masse cue out of dymondwood to his specifications. I also remember them stating that they were going to have a line of cues made by another cue maker with their name on the cues out of dymondwood.

Now I am not the first person to ever use dymondwood in a cue as I got my first piece of Pakawood from a cue maker in Memphis that had already make one from it. Am I the first person to make jump cues from Dymondwood? Honestly I do not know but I believe that I am. Am I the first person to make jump/breaks out of dymondwood? I do not know that either but I believe this is true also. I never saw one or heard of one before I did it. There might be someone out there that was doing it before me but I never saw or knew about them.

Now for the real question, do I care? The answer to that is not really. I am a cue maker and I like other cue makers see it as flattery when someone uses your design or your ideas. I have gotten ideas on inlays for cues from all the great cue makers. Sure I refine it alittle and make a few changes here and there but it was still started as someone else's idea.

Here is my jumper. The grain in the shaft lines up with the grain in the butt. Jumps better than anything i've owned which have included Predator, Poison, Lomax and Pierce. Can't say enough about it!!

You may want to retract your statement, as it is a blatant violation
of posting rules to bash a listing in this section. You probably weren't aware.

You can always contact Alex Brick directly.

Thanks Str8, these were sold awhile back when demand was higher I paid more than the other dealer is asking and should have ended the listing as they have all sold at this time. To the lister providing another sellers lower pricing in a sale thread just imagine if I were to step in as you sold your used car, boat cue, etc. and told your potential buyer of a cheaper price elsewhere, I would probably be met with a response something like "mind you own business" but here on AZ the proper forum for fyi ' s such as yours would be a pm to the seller. But to any and all reading, I have no more Brick cues, but they are available and for a great price here on AZ.
