Agreed, the 06' Coker I own never going anywhere. Have checked out and played with Treadways a few friends own and they are very nice. Anybody have one they would let go?

Have a good safe Holiday Weekend

i cant say enough about davids work as well as what a swell guy he is to know
2nd the notion and up the ante a few spots. Dave Brainard is the bomb. My Titlist conversion is all I use now, for the most part.

It's AZ's monthly thread to plug your favorite cuemaker, this time underrated even if one of his cues is for sale every week here!

Folks...you gotta try Rick Schickenjanskilonis cues, if you can even find one. They hit out of this world good! Get on his order list before it's multiple years!

JoeyinCali and Mike Johnson (Jensen cues) would be good choices of guys who make outstanding playing cues that you don't hear much about.

Joey's cues are hard to come by on the secondary market, think I've seen 3 for sale in the last year which is more than normal.

IMO too many dont understand what "underrated" in this situation means...

IMO it means a maker who is VERY WELL known AND is/was VERY active building cues that does not receive the amount of recognition they should.

Using that criteria as a guide, the "most" underrated IMHO are Pete Tascarella, Joe Gold, and Bill Stroud.

Pete's "build" including fit and finish are at least on par with George and Gus and his knowledge is extensive yet his "due", though I think in the future is inevitable, is underated.

Joe's inovation, design, and as well precision he brought to cue making, has made an enormous impact on the industry and on makers that followed but is muted by many who just dont realize his contributions.

Bill, being an early quality custom pioneer, revolutionized cue building with his design as well the use of technology, which so many now use today, to produce his amazing work.


Design is a fingerprint of the mind....

To me, "under rated" means someone who makes a cue that is just as "good" as a "top rated" maker, but hasn't been around long enough to establish their name or they don't make enough cues to be very well known.

To me, names mean nothing...other than I know who they are that they normally do quality work.

I'd be just as happy buying a "no name" maker's cue if I knew they were capable of producing the same quality of a cue. Especially, if they were charging way, way less.

I have a Titlist that was converted by Mike Pancerny in Detroit and I don't think anyone could have done any better. I'd never heard of him until I bought the Titlist off someone in Detroit and they mentioned that Mike could convert it for me.

I've heard Mike's cues are very good quality and that they play well, but I've never seen one in person.

tikkler, on here, raved about the one he bought off Mike.

Before you can be underrated you have to be around long enough and have an extensive body if work to consider to not be thought of to be so...Meaning you have to be known by many but not recognised. Those not around long enough to establish their work have not been around long enough to be underrated IMHO.

I don't think Tesla has been around as long as Ford or Chevy or produced anywhere near as many cars.

Which makers are better known?

Is Tesla under rated or over rated?
