Cue Makers Hall Of Fame-If You Could Vote... - 07-29-2014, 04:50 AM

If you could vote for one cue maker (not already inducted) that should be inducted to the Cuemakers Hall Of Fame, who would you nominate ? There are soooo many great ones and I know selecting one is difficult... List your reason why as well...

Dennis Searing. He is constantly evolving and is continually raising the bar for all existing and future cue makers...

Craig Petersen...finest custom maker from that era who's not in there. Several legendary makers today have told me he's one of the best ever.

That suggestion just reminds me that picking just one is too hard... I think Pete T. is another one that will be in there...

Yep... Great builder, love mine, & who knows Balabushka's better than Pete...IMHO.
Although as you said it's soooo hard. Gives folks and idea how hard it must be for the
actual board and members that vote.

Not too sure of the other contributions to billiards but he and Trudy's detail and craftsmanship all add up to a great looking and play cue. I have owned and still do his JT series cues as well as an ivory/ebony custom he made for me.

Edwin was extremely helpful to other cue builders and one of the few building world class cues without most of the hi-tech equipment in use today. Killed in what was apparently a political assassination in his prime, he still left an impressive body of work behind.

Edwin was a skilled artist who few in cue building could match working with their hands.

My nomination to both halls would be Edwin Reyes.

The omission of Paul Mottey and Paul Dayton in the HOF is.....
....well, appalling.

...and Paul Drexler
