Has a 1/2 by 8 wood pin. 1 shaft 13.25 mm talisman tip, carbon fiber pad and no ferrule, second shaft 12.75 mm divinci tip, carbon fiber pad and no ferrule. Both shafts are recycled Brunswick bowling alley wood. elk antler at joint and butt cap (ring).

snakewood is very dense like ebony or pink ivory and has a very very solid hit. This cue plays like a one piece cue.

Solid Snakewood is notoriously hard to work with. I think he did an incredible job on it.

Long pieces of Snakewood are gonna' crack ... fact of life.
However, when stabilized, the hit and playability are
not affected. You may still see the crack ?
I have owned several that have cracked, then stabilized,
and not one single issue thereafter.

All of that said, this one would be mine in a heart-beat were it 60".

Chuck Starkey builds (Crafts) Great Cues ... Period !!!

Wow I know a lot of makers who would never even think of attempting something like that. Amazing!

Chuck crafts cues that hit beautifully. That's all the matters.


"The average man seeks certainty in the eye of the onlooker and calls that self-confidence.
The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eye and calls that humbleness."
Carlos Castenada
