I believe that he took a lot of deposits on cues and never delivered on them. I think that was the last I heard of Zinzola.

When you're late, or do very egregious things to your customers, like take their money and not deliver, you need to expect some blowback. For some it becomes dog pile on the rabbit, you're a scumbag, you can't deliver, you're a thief, for others its, he is a genius and needs time, he is a family man and cues are secondary, he has health problems, he is a great cuemaker but can't read a clock or calendar. He was not in the latter in the eyes of the cue buying universe...

Yeah you are right, he WAS an genius.
His cues plays damn sporty but he can't read a clock or calendar and no money to pay back.

I haven't been here in quite a while, and I'm simply shocked to read what has happened to Tony. I still don't know the full story, but I've gotten the gist of it. In any case, here's a big HELLO to those of you that still remember me.

I use one of his cues as my player and it's amazing. I've hit with a pretty wide variety of cues and it's the best I've ever hit with. It also made me switch to regular maple after being a diehard low deflection shaft guy for years (granted the shaft on my player is over 150 years old).

Perfect job for scam artists. Real estate agents are about the "last two" better than lawyers.

For awhile, I even debated about having him build me a cue since his workmanship looked pretty good.
Then that rotten SOB screwed a bunch of customers and ran away. There's posts on Az about this thief.
