I have a 4 point Rick Howard that's fantastic though it's not full splice.
Like a fool I sold a full splice sneaky made for me by Keith Josey, (friend begged for it). Selling it was a mistake.
No experience with Dzuricky but all I hear is great. Check out his youtube videos about cue repair/building.
You picked 3 great names here, good luck!
(my R. Howard is NOT for sale)
At this stage of my life if I was going to get a new cue it would be a full splice true sneaky from Schmelke for a little less than $150.

If you're looking for something new built to your specs then I think those are good choices. If I were going to get a full splice shooter I would buy a Motty titlist conversion, I have never had one but everyone says they play great and if you find one for a good price you'll likely have an easy sell in the future if you so desire.

Maybe add Bob Frey to your list. On the other hand Johnny mentioned Schmelke. They not only make cues they sell a boatload of unfinished blanks to "custom" builders. How much is a sanding, finish and name stamp worth?

I bought a basic sneaky, from Keith Josey back in 2011. They were easy to work with, and communication was good. Plus, it was completed a few weeks before the promised delivery time. It's been my primary cue ever since.

Old Wood his very well, think about a Titlist Conversion. Lots of people doing the conversions, and also think someone extra they will part with.

DZ makes good cues, I had one and 2 of my friends ordered from him once they played with mine.

Josey also one of the best, I just got another cue from him.

Make sure you ask for hand selected shaft wood from both so you get the best, its worth extra $$$
Josey Timeless Timber shaft is unbeatable wood!

Jump & Break cue: Poison

I've had a couple of cues from Schmelke, but that was before the Laminated Shafts came out. I'm thinking about getting him to make me a LD shaft with 5/16x14 pin. Have you tried one of his LD shafts, or heard anything about them?

I have been shooting with a Diveney Custom Ebony Hustler since 2013 and I also got one of his cocobolo Bar Hustler cues. Had him make 31" butts and 30" Diveney Lake Salvage shafts with them. Also have one of his LD Kiel Wood shafts.

I doubt I will ever have another playing cue made. His web site says he is not currently taking custom orders as he is a busy guy. But, he usually has an inventory of Custom Ebony and Sneaky Petes.

He has made cues and shafts for at least three of our current Mosconi Cup players. But, they were lured away buy deep pocket sponsors.

I might be interested in the Josey if it's a true sneaky. Of course I'll wait to see if "coltstudd" wants to get it, if not I'd like to see a few pics, price, and then decide. Thanks
