I've always liked that style of cue, simple design showing off the wood grain but with pretty rings. Dave Barenbrugge does that so well. see Breakandrun's example he posted below:

I no longer know what I like since I've converted to carbon fiber with a custom paint job.
Is that cue for sale? Itís beautiful

Can you send me a quote for that cue?

I'm not at all associated with this cue other than seeing it right before seeing this thread. IMHO, it's a beautiful cue.

This is the type of butt I find aesthetically pleasing: https://www.pooldawg.com/mcdermott-g...20group%20%231
I'd love to own that butt, but I doubt at my age I'll ever add another cue/shaft to my collection.

What are your preferences? (pictures please)

Maniac (hopefully a thread that won't get combative)
I agree, this is my taste as well...as a matter of fact all these cues posted on this thread have been my taste. I love ebony and birdseye maple to. Thanks for posting pics. I may have to try that McDermott.

Good choice.

That is a beautiful combination of woods.

He does fantastic work, too.

Such a man spends all his life playing every day for small stakes. Give him every morning the money that he may gain during the day, on condition that he does not play-you will make him unhappy. It will perhaps be said what he seeks is the amusement of play, not gain. Let him play then for nothing, he will lose interest and be wearied. ***Blaise Pascal***

Yes this wood combination is amazing together. Although JC didnít make mine I do have a break cue he built for me. His cues do play really. A friend of mine traded for one somewhere and I have played some with it.

This hobby is almost as bad as the gun forums

Also ordered from PoolDawg yesterday but for some simple 48" cues due to small room with the new table.

I can appreciate those nice cues, though, I have caviar taste on a beer budget.

Pool is not a fashion show. Cue sticks are instruments.

My idea of a beautiful cue - 05-05-2020, 04:06 PM

This thread reminds of the ball collecting thread. I love looking at these beautiful cues. All the cues are works of beauty and Tateís cue, pictured in post #3, keeps me going back for another look. Iím like many, not enough money to feed my desires, but love seeing them.

With that being said, I recently decided to replace my one-piece Dufferin house cues with some two-piece McDermott Lucky cues. One has a green speckled wrap, with what they call a cherry stain. It seems very light, honey colored to me, but looks great with the green speckles. I never thought I would like the green speckled wrap but this inexpensive cue has me second guessing my likes. I think it is the L9 cue. Again inexpensive and not near the class of the beauties in this thread but it has me seeing the good of green specks with wood.

You really need to make me a cue, we think so much alike I know you would make one I loved with no guidance from me.

I also completely agree with you on this combo. That does look awesome together. It really highlights the natural colors of the Spalted Tamaring. It's almost what I would picture the heartwood of Macassar ebony being if it was highly figured.

No it was posted by BreakandRun, a member here a few years ago on AZ - he got it. It's really difficult to get a Barenbrugge Cue, at least it was. At one time I wanted one then gave up. They were all going to Japan.
