Those are pictures of actual Tad cues, and anyone who could clone a Tad wouldn't have to resort to bush leauge bait and switch sales tactics.

It says custom made but you can order the cue as 17,
18, 19, 20, & 21 ozs. I have a hunch that all they do
is make a light cue to start with & then they just stick
a heavier weight bolt in the butt. This is a disaster that
is desperately in search of another victim. Caveat Emptor!

Look at that... someone needs to tell them
this ainít right.. Anito Kid, are you in the
house?
EVEN if youíre just showing the designs
youíre inspired by, using photos of
othersí work is not cool.

I'd like to see what one of these cues actually looks like.

Looks to be the seller is in the Philippines.

He seems to get positive reviews if you read the feedback.

I see it says that the seller does not accept returns.

You're not getting anything close to the original.
weight bolt is SLAG iron jammed into the butt, can't remove it, break the cue open to find it.
Inlays are bits and pieces of seashell.
Wood is usually whatever's laying on the beach.
I wouldn't make a big deal of this, children of Island natives sitting around gluing seashell into place.

I have a cue I bought on here,that came from the Phillipines, and if it had a Tad logo on it , 99% of the people in the world would say it was a Tad, even pool players.
I didn't buy it to fool anyone , I bought it because I refuse to pay 10 or 12 ,000 dollars for a hunk of wood and a substance that makes you a victim, any time some zealot gets a burr up their butt.

99% of people in the world couldn't tell the difference between a roll of Christmas wrapping paper and a Tad. Most pool players can't tell the difference between a Helmstetter and a Tad.

Anyone with the skill to clone a Tad would be able to do ok working under his own name, doesn't matter if he's working from the moon.

The market, greed, and most likely pride or ego wouldn't allow him to be pushing $200 knock-offs on ebay.

By the way, you're not going to find a lot of Tad's with ivory.

Of course 99% of the people in the world have never seen a TAD and if you think all cues are hunks of wood, you probably did well on your purchase.

PS When you sell your "TAD" I hope you inform the buyer they are not buying the real thing.

The auction just popped up while checking eBay.
Here's the photo's from that page.

I asked the seller to send an actual picture of the cue being sold.
let's wait and see what happens.

I doubt I would get what's shown in these photo's.
