Ugly sneaky starter cue for someone - 01-08-2016, 09:33 AM

The first fullsplice I ever made. I'm continuing my ruthless purge of all extra items and found this.

Needs a tip.

Pay shipping and give it to a player who needs a cue. Plays solid, micarta ferrule, 12.6mm

Best story REGARDING A PLAYER IN NEED before Monday morning gets it.

Just a hideous test piece that I fiddled with. Red oak and sapele. Nice sound and feel.

It might be just me, but I don't think that cue looks ugly at all. I have all the cues I need and live abroad, plus I've given every deserving player I know of one of my unwanted cues allready, so I won't be applying. I think it's a great thing you are doing!

Someone will get a really nice cue. Hope they can put it to good use.

How much is the shipping? My friend Monty wants to have his own cue? Might be a nice pay it forward...

I'm with you, I don't think it looks bad at all. I have plenty of cues to shoot with so I'm not going to put my name in the hat but I really hope someone really appreciates this cue and treats it right.

That cue should belong to me....
Sapele weighs 640 kilograms per cubic meter....not that far from ebony.

Soooo....Sapele is a lot denser than it looks...
....so am I....

story - 01-08-2016, 01:49 PM

I will go by the rules.

I was in a bar one night when 2 guys were arguing. All of a sudden - one of them picks up the cue ball and throws it as hard as he can! It hit the other guy in the forehead. The noise it made was sickening! The dude that got hit went down exactly like one of those buildings that you see them do controlled demolitions to from the bottom. He just dropped straight down as if someone had made his legs vanish. I chugged the last of my bottle of beer and grabbed my buddy off the barstool beside me. I'm dragging him to the door - he says, "What are you doing? " I said "Getting out of here - I I think he just killed that guy!" As we were driving off - there were sirens and lights everywhere...

That's a pretty gripping story, but I meant about a player in need.

Though I guess that guy could use some help.

I've owned way uglier cues than this one.
Your cue wouldn't even place in the top 10 in some of the ugliest cue contests that I've won

Last year I sold a custom cue that was so ugly...the buyer shattered it a week after he bought it.
The cue played real good, and the guy still shattered it.

Nothing wrong with that Splice job at all. Looks very nicely done.

I got a young guy that I play with. He was using an old cheapo cue that has been around for way too long. Eventually the pin was getting real loose and he had me take a look at it. It had some big cracks around the joint and the thing is just unrepairable. He has been looking for something to get started playing again. I offer him the use of mine, but he always refuses since he doesnt want anything to happen to mine if he dropped it or something. He loves to play any chance he gets even if he is using bar cues lately.

I use a Canadian made product for Old School finishes. Jump cues and Snooker.

Dr. Wood Well's Elixir. Should the lucky recipient want to buy a small bottle, I can tell you that a light sand on this one and a few wipes of Wood Well will make you most happy. Even can skip the sand paper and give it a clean with alcohol.

All it needs would be a couple of coats of this magic. It dries quick and then you can use ordinary shaft wax on the butt to give it a much nicer sheen.

BTW, Danny was most pleased, well pleased as Punch with his new cue. I didn't have my phone but will take a couple of pics next time that we are playing in the same bar. I play in a different League this year so our paths don't cross as much, but he plays Tues Vegas VNEA and I play Wed Molson, which is CPA Sanctioned.

The extra shaft is a smaller diameter than the butt. But, I wrote down the dimension of the collar. I have a Schon to refinish and a bit more work that needs to be done first.

I am going to put on a small joint collar, smaller in width and see if I can't bring the taper down so as not to make it look too noticeable.

I made sure that Danny knew this was one of the Pay It Forward Cues that we do on occasion.

"This is mine, mine to keep, really"? Yes Danny, it's all yours, just don't put it in a Pawn Shop ok. I was teasin him. I doubt that he would.

He says Thank You for the Cue also. I would say that if anyone were to ever receive a Most Improved Player Award, it might go to him. He was almost a Hack a few years ago. Now, he can keep a person on their toes.

I was lucky on the first cue so best of luck to the person who gets this one.

I've been getting a friend of mine into pool, he barely has any practice but he has a natural talent for shots. I took him to a weekly tournament, there was 26 in the tournament and he took 3rd. He's interested in getting his own stick and this would be perfect for him to start. Having his own stick is what he needs to take his game to the next level.
