Whole cues or just blanks? Some FS makers only make blanks like Andrew Rounceville for ex. Schmelke does blanks and cues, Prather does both, MVP does both as does S. Williams and Vigus. There's a couple Russian guys that make FS cues, Willee Blade and Shuriken. Sure there's others but i can't name them now.

Prather custom cues. I just had one of his blanks done by Dzuricky. Prather also does his own finishing if you so desire.

Iíve tried dealing with a lot of custom cue makers in an attempt to have a full splice butterfly custom cue made. Cost was not an issue. The problem is that a lot of the cue makers are small time working out of their garage and are slow to respond or donít respond at all. Iím not going to mention any names. Itís very frustrating trying to do business with them. I finally gave up. I wonder if cue making is a vocation or avocation to many of them.

Prather.
Schmelke....I have a simple Bocote 4 pointer that I am getting ready to sell. Never been chalked.

Hard to go wrong with any of these gents. Some of them may not be taking orders at this time, but it never hurts to contact them.
Best regards.

Can't speak for all but making FS stuff is very time consuming. I recently contacted A. Rounceville about a basic ebony sneaky blank and was told its about a 2yr wait on one. I know L. Vigus makes what you describe but have no idea as to his delivery timeline.

I really like and support Schmelke,
but they're not going to deliver the quality of
point work offered by the other named makers.
While both may be similar in construction
techniques, my Shelby Williams is light years
beyond my Schmelke's in terms of how the hit feels and general appearance.
It feels like it costs more. Weird statement, but true.

With Schmelke's exotic wood choices
and good quality standards, they're filling a very realistic gap in the custom cue market.

I also agree it's pretty hard to beat a Players
or J&J sneaky for under $100 for a good daily sparring cue.
They're perfect for leaving in the car as a back up.
The wood is treated and stabilized so they don't warp even for being cheap.
