PM.....me, let me know if Strouds personal cue shows up I want to see it one more time. It had 4 diamonds in the butt, set like you would in a ring. That cue was worth $5,000 in the late seventies. It was more of a collectors cue than a players cue, only because the diamonds were not flush with handle by the butt end.

Howdy,
Hope all is well!
I still own your red/white/blue cue case with your name on the top from your year on the American team with Dave Matlock, etc....

I know the fella that owns the JW cue with diamonds. I will see if I can get a picture at some point and post it.

Thx Will.

Yep it was Myself, Matlock (we roomed together), Dallas West, Grady, Wetch, Liscotti (he played the best in Germany) Ditoro, and Liel Gay if my old memory serves me well. And of course John Lewis. I was actually the one, at one of the rules meetings in Konigswinter, that set the max length of a metal ferrule on a cue. I realized from yrs on the road, how metal on a jump cue when increased in length, made pool a bouncing cue ball game. No skill required with a jump metal rod,I found out the hard way in a room in KS in the early 80's. Guy actually had used steel chair leg with a rubber foot, it could jump over anything within 2''. I'm kinda surprised how much I've been thinking about Bill since he passed, would of drove down to see em if I knew ahead of time. I wrote Barb a letter this week, hope she's well. What a wonderful person.

These cues bring back great memories of visiting John Wright just 45 min away from me and seeing all of the cues he had of Bill's. One cue in particular, Study In Red, was my second favorite I'd seen from JW at the time. My favorite was an 8 point with loads of mop owned by a local player from the Chicago Heights Illinois area named Louie Colquit (name might be spelled wrong)... He used to spar with a fairly well known player, Ike Runnels, ALL the time. One pocket, 9 ball, banks, whatever they could agree to... I always wondered what happend to that cue... Maybe Ike knows?!?


Design is a fingerprint of the mind....

Hi Skins,
I owned the Study in Red cue for 8-10 years, traded it as part of a big DPK cue trade. I still have a cue exactly like it,
made with striped ebony instead of Gabon ebony. Bill made this one for me in 1992, before the Study in Red.

No matter if it was a classic design or over the top, Bill sure made some beautiful cues..
