You knocked it out of the park with the buttsleeve and forearm. IMO the handle is way to busy and detracts from the flow of the cue.

Tommy, I fully respect your opinion that is why I build cues in lots of different designs and at different levels as everyone has there own tastes. This particular design I build at different levels and wrapped or wrapless also in different colors and materials. Building one for a local customer that is exactly the same as this cue except it gets a lizard wrap.

Thanks, have done this design in blue flame before but in my opinion the red flame looks a little nicer

I am Dizzy, could be Vertigo, put a black leather wrap ASAP, or sooner.


I almost made that shot.

I love the handle Tom. My only preference is that the sleeve should stand out more than the forearm. Similar to how Tad built cues. When it comes to traditional pointed cues I've always been about a design starting from the back and moving forward diminishing as it gets to the point tips....Since the forearm has so much white going on, I would have liked to have seen that magnified in the sleeve so it stands out more.... But thats my personal taste..

Regardless, it's a great design and a super cue Pete.


Design is a fingerprint of the mind....
