Guess who? - 07-09-2009, 04:35 PM

Hi all!

How are you guys and gals doing? Hoping all is good and healthy.
Let's play a little game today....

Guess who did the customization on this Tulipwood Sneakiest Pete...

I was using a black collar OB2 shaft on the sneakiest butt, and I was getting annoyed by it, so I had this done.

The butt cap and joint collars are new. The joint collars are black phenolic, Grey mother of pearl and tulipwood, as for the butt cap, I am unsure. It has a new finish on the cue as well. I must say, it is really beautiful and I love it. Also, I had the OB logo removed as well.

It was cored out and has balance point redone and the bumper is changed out. It is now 60 inches long and 17.5oz

The hit was very firm and there is a lot of feel. Fantastic! It hits completely different than when I first got it. When I got it, it hits well, but now, it hits "phenomenal"!

Overall, I cannot ask for more!

here are the pictures:










Have fun guys!

Take care and happy shooting!

Thank you for all the nice compliments. I really love it. For those who guess Manwon (Craig) has hit the nail right on the head.

As for the cost, please contact Craig for the job, he asked me not to discuss the price with anyone but contact him directly for the price of the customization.

Like I have said above, I couldn't ask for more, it is awesome and the hit was awesome.

Thanks Craig for the great work!!!!

Happy shooting!

Nicely done. That was a lot of work for a sneaky





This is my poolcue. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My poolcue is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My poolcue, without me, is useless. Without my poolcue, I am useless...

It ain't real sneaky but it sure is pretty. Some cue people do a lot of talking and are short on performance. Craig is very modest when talking about his abilities and lets his work do the talking.

Looking at the cue gives a strong indication that it would hit great without you typing a word. Very nice cue!

Well Chino, it is obvious that these folks can't be fooled!!! Thanks to everyone who posted, I certainly appreciated the kind words, and it means a great deal to me personally that so many recognized my work.

Here are some additional photo's of the cue during the conversion.

Last let me say thanks to Chino for allowing me to have a free hand in the modification of this cue, he was certainly a pleasure to deal with in all aspects of this small project.

Have a great night

Thanks Hu, I was amazed at the hit of the cue. I haven't hit with anything this nice before. Compared to my dad's older Schon, I like this much better!
