I guess I don't know how things work around here in all circumstances, but allowing a thread with an inflammatory first post and then "I'll get back to everyone with the facts" seems pretty unreasonable, and reflects even more poorly on the person starting the thread. Not real impressed at this point, and will now be taking in any of the "details" with more than a few grains of salt.

Make sure you check your references before you buy on this site. Even a mod here engages in bad business!

Gentlemen........please refrain from the ineptful humor since this is a genuinely important and serious issue.
Brent Summers is entitled to be judged fairly but if he decides to not participate, he deserves all the crap.
Accepting a cue order is a contract. This isn't a walk in the store, browse the display case & take a cue home.
And $2800 for a custom cue is serious money and the customer is entitled to the cue he ordered and still awaits.

All too often a cue-maker and his customer reside in different states that can also be very far apart. But when
different states are involved, any criminal prosecution of the cue-maker becomes much more complicated.
But what about the customer that waits and waits to get his cue and finally years later ,this cue finally shows up.
And much to the customer's dismay, the cue has flaws and is basically a botched job but the cue-maker is
basically unresponsive and refuses to refund the money. Shouldn't future customers via the Forum be alerted?

The Forum is the only location where problem cue-makers are identified and sometimes the issue gets resolved.
Brethen Azers offer suggestions....and sarcasm......but people soon find out if the issue is legitimate and that's good.
Being forewarned is almost as good as being forearmed. It's usually better to avoid a problem than confronting one.

Thank you for bringing this matter to the Forum and I do hope that this gets resolved to your ultimate satisfaction.
The cue-makers I have dealt with have been wonderful people & Bob Owen has truly been just the best of the best.
If you can get your money back, head straight to Bob and you will never be disappointed with the cue that he builds.

I guess it's a bit disturbing, to me, that someone would post a link to a reputable site that sells cues and (I'm assuming) has no direct affiliation with Brent Summers?

Yep, but the link provided did not point that/this:

The smokinjoe user was the one who added proficient billiards who do top notch refinishes.

He should remove that, heck the whole thread should be removed until A, B, C, are all outlined.

Get your information together FIRST, then post what you want, not ruin a mans reputation (possibly someone who might have just been wanting to buy a stick) and then say you'll get back to us on that.

7 hours later, still no reply from the OP. I know people have jobs, weddings, bar mitzvas, car breakdowns, dinners at Hooters... but he spent all that time photoshopping the red T-shirt when he could have been writing up a synopsis of the facts.

"I'll get back to you" doesn't mean next week, does it?

Boo on this! Proficient is one of the best repair and restoration companies in the pool business. I've had several cues worked on by them, all for reasonable prices and they did excellent and timely work. Their name should not be on this thread!

It appears that SmokinJoe46 was attempting to lead the OP to Proficient billiards as a reputable source for a cue by the same maker he originally ordered from.......not to drag PB into the sh!tshow that's sure to ensue.
