◊◊ Mike Durbin Cue & Shop Visit ◊◊ - 03-20-2016, 05:14 PM

Here is a new Mike Durbin cue, and I was fortunate enough to be able to visit his shop to pick it up. Mike is truly one of the goods guys, and a fine ambassador of our sport. Proud to add this one to the stable.







Mike has a great shop and a fantastic home room attached with 2 Gold Crown V's and a heated billiard table. Mike is a farmer as well as a cuemaker. I believe his family farms over 2,000 acres. Below is a tribute cue to his farming life that was scrimmed by Crystal Herbert.

Nice cue - 03-21-2016, 04:32 AM

I like yours but I have to admit I like the John Deere cue more. I guess its my redneck past showing up. You do take some great pictures, thanks for showing them off.


10 years ago we had Steve Jobs, Bob Hope and Johnny Cash. Now we have no Jobs, no Hope and no Cash.

I was arrested and the judge said life in prison, or you can join an APA league. I wish now that I had taken the prison term.

It's always cool to go to the Durbin shop. Great people tend to hang out there. And the cues are really nice too.

Gorgeous cue

I've always found troops to a cue shop to be extremely interesting. I've always liked machines and figuring out how to make them work.


Yes my custom cue also doubles as a light saber. You might say that it shoots lights out. You are now activated Agent 92395. Obtain the funds from Goldman Sachs and deposit into my Swiss account. This message will make you shit your pants in 5 seconds. Sev found it first.

Does Mike regularly use this person for scrimmed cues? Fantastic work.

I have an idea I need to find a builder for that will require some scrimshaw. Hard to find these days it seems.

Every Durbin I've seen had really really nice points. They were all VERY even. Pet peeve of mine on expensive cues. Hate seeing uneven points.





Looking for this CA$H cue. PM me with any information!
