Most Unique Cue - 05-05-2009, 04:03 PM

Who would you say has the most unique playable cue. Not like the Ivory PFD Tutankamun but cues that people actually play with.

I mean exact cue. Not maker or the way it hits. I was thinking along the lines of the POW-MIA inlay in Joey A's cue. That is an extremely unique design.

I would have to say the Corsair Black Beauty, the cue had a Black Phenolic Forearm and Butt, I am uncertain what the handle area was made from. But, I knew some one who owned and used for many years, I even tried myself and it hit pretty Good.

Thomas Wayne's St. Patrick's Nightmare... last I heard Jim Buss owned it. Pretty sweet looking cue.

If you are going for most unique....I got a nice close up look at Ralph Souquet's cue at Derby this year and it is pretty damn remarkable. You can get a pretty good look at it in his "whats in the case" segment" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42yd7...eature=related

Think he says it is a one of a kind Joss.

most unique - 05-06-2009, 06:31 AM

i playing at a tournament in buffalo, missouri. a carpenter shows up with a homemade one piece cue that looks like its made of oak. the cue is one piece and almost square. it had a round ferrule, but the rest of the cue was square. it was tapered like a round cue, and about the same size. looked a bit unique to me.

I'd have to offer-up Ralf Souquet's custom Joss playing cue. See photo #13 (and others) here:

http://azbilliards.com/gallery/showp...?playernum=682

Definitely a very flashy design!

EDIT: Only noticed now that IntoTheRail already offered-up Ralf Souquet's cue, with a better link that offers a close-up view.

Unique Cue - 05-06-2009, 09:00 AM

I built a cue about a year ago. I had a previous life as a sailor, and always appreciated the 'arts of the sailor', decorative knots and the like.

So last year I built a cue, one piece handle of birdseye maple, but cut the wrap slot deeper than usual and wraped it with 1/8" waxed hemp like was used in many decorative sailors knots. I tied a Turks Head knot at each end of the wrap and other just above the butt cap.

Because the hemp is so rough, I covered all three turks heads and the wrap with finish.

The cue has a very unique look, but also .... Plays Very Well !!!

Of course I made my 'Wine Cork Joint Protectors' for this very special cue.

I will try to attach photos.
