Tascarella Silver Fullsplice Hoppe A modern twist... Just arrived - 07-07-2015, 07:58 AM

Hey Azer's,
Just arrived!
It's always nice to work with the Pete's again...
I wanted a contemporary twist to one of Pete's Fullsplice Hoppe's and the finish product was perfect.
All Silver Inlays through out the cue.
Note how Pete knotched the smaller silver diamonds into the reverse points.
The floating buttsleve came out perfect IMO..
Enjoy the pictures. Will be 4sale soon
Best,
Ken Kerner

That is a really cool looking cue, love the twist of silver rather than ivory inlays. Congratulations!

Hard to not notice! I think the cue is pretty but part of
me can't help but wonder what is being covered up in the
return points.

A great clean fresh look with tradition. Pete's cues play and feel exceptional.

Josh,
I saw the Fullsplice blank in person before we added inlays.
It was perfect. Was just a cool decision to notch them in, instead of having them come off the bottom point. No coverups here...

I'm with you, razor sharp return points are the hardest thing to achieve in cuemaking.

It's too bad the silver had to get wrapped in black on those inlays. If they were just the silver diamonds, I think it would look pretty crisp.

I love the veneers in this cue, and nice to see silver instead of ivory for a change!


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

While I do believe the blank was perfect, I'm a purist when it comes to full splices.
Speaking hypothetically, if it were my cue, I would have not put the inlays on the points.

It's a stunning cue, but those inlays bug me

Looking at it again, I think the black is what's bugging me. Silver alone would have looked amazing!
