I believe it's really beautiful cocobolo wood in this cue and overall great looking cue. The only but...those pictures...it reminds me some pictures of models with so much photoshop work that they look like dolls). Is that black hornbeam shaft?


Playing cue: 62" full spliced player I''ve built for myself
Break cue: made by myself

Yes, the shaft is black hornbeam. The handle is black hornbeam as is the core material.
The cue arrived on March 14 from Ukraine and it plays great.

Thanks Dean,

I still have a black hornbeam black tulip from the Willie Blade shop.
This is much different from what those are.
I prefer the hornbeam shaft to maple and he'll pretty much make the taper you request.

What also looks funny for me that is all this craziness with carbon fiber shafts which seems to become a trend. Just two weeks ago one of my pupils asked me if it's possible to paint the shaft in black so it looks like carbon fiber). My job as a coach is to educate my students and explain what is really important...

You did a great job and I wish you all the best.
