Alpha cues rock!!! - 09-24-2008, 07:04 AM

Like Tim Cole...I, myself, try to use Mike to do all my cue repair...from Szamboti to Vikings...I trust him with them all. All of Mike's Alpha cues are unique to say the least and play fantastic...Mike is a great friend and I always wish him the best. I am very surprised to hear he makes over 10 cues a year..but most guys that buy one never want to sell them...I guess that's why to don't see them available. Mike is currently working on a cue for me...it only been about 5 yrs...but I said I was in no hurry.

Good Luck with the sale...

Jeremy

I'll probably get some heat for this, but that has to be the most HIDEOUS cue I've ever seen.

Seriously, it looks like someone cut up half a dozen house cues while they were smoking crack, and then glued them back together to make one frankenstein cue.

I wouldn't pay $45 for it, much less $450. Doesn't matter who it's made by, but maybe he was drunk the night he made that one.

It's ok hfelsh. Everyone has an opinion. Some like them and some don't. I am Mikes business partner and fellow builder and have been for the last 10 years. Frankenstein sometimes describes them best. We don't necessarily build a cue for works of art, but we specialize in building a cue to a players choice of hit. We cater to players and what they want in a cue. Hopefully this will clarify what we at Alpha cues strive for. Now we are in the works of getting things together to start building some one of a kind custom cues (short spliced points, inlays, etc). So keep in touch.

Matt Bender was with his brother, Mike, building cues at Omega. I believe Matt was a machinist when Mike was there. When Mike left, Matt took over as the primary cue maker at Omega along with dpk....
