Who needs a Searing, when you can get a Jackpot?
Dennis makes the best playing pool cues on the planet.... Barr none..... Unfortunately I feel he has stolen my property and is making no effort to rectify the situation. I’ve known Dennis a long time, I’ve been to his shop a couple times. I’ve played rounds of golf with the man. No matter what “issues” he has , it is no reason not to keep some type of communication up on a ridiculously long repair problem.... I mean we are pushing 12 fuc*%#* years here. He may be hoping for my death??? Lol

I could make a cue if you give me 15 years to get it to you.
It would probably be on par with a jackpot, too. The firm who made those has been around way longer than 15 years
I agree that Dennis has a pretty comical output volume. What he does put out is perfect in every way, though
This is the best post I've read in this thread.I don’t know Dennis Searing nor have I ever seen one of his cues in person. However from what I’ve read on here about him I have no desire to own one of his cues either. He’s not the only cuemaker that I won’t own one of their cues either.
Lets stay civil fellas
How many of you have ordered a cue from Searing,when ?
,did he keep in touch or did you ever get your cue?
I was told mine was #1 on his list about 12 years ago
He called to ask me a favor about 6 years ago.
I read him my list of grievances,I feltlike he lied to me.
He apologized profusely,talked for over an hour,promised to get me a new cue in a very few months.
I said fine,we will see
He took about 15 minutes to tell me how to get used to it when I got it
Tips like shoot about 30 easy shots about a foot from the hole before I tried a longer shot
Not to spin my ball, a series of such stuff so I would not expect too much
,how to build my
confidence as I got familiar. In other wordshe acted like he was on the job
He asked what i wanted, I said based on my experience with himI would take a plain Willie Hoppe style
He asked if I would prefer a box cue,he knew I liked box cues
I said yeah I would but I would rather get a basic cue than nothing
He said "oh you are really going to get itthis time
You see I was not some poor schmuck who got put on a list,I was promised I was next
Naturally I never heard from him,but I never thought I would
I hear stories like this all the time from well known collectors
Do you even know anyone who plays one of these cues?
Have you ever played one?
did you play better with it?
What was better?
I have heard great cue makers who hold him in awe,
to me I just don't see it myself
For as much of a recluse that he seems to be about his cue making, I had no trouble contacting him about his layered tips (which are excellent, BTW). Last year, I emailed him once about availability and again a month later to place an order. Both times, I got a response from him the next day.
Kinda feel like I should print and frame the emails.
