Today I've got $110 from Malcolm, $25 will go to the one of actual fundrisings from the list of our trusted volunteers. The rest money goes for processing the cues from the queue and shipping.
Malcolm will get his cue in 1.5 month as well as @Jimmorrison who has the highest bid on the auction at the moment.
Thank you Anton for reserving one of the Butterfly Cues for me (Malcolm). I'm looking at some of your other cues and blanks as well. I admire the effort you put forth for your country.

Got word my cue has been shipped and on the way. Looking forward to receiving it.
Good to support one of our AZ members and his country's cause.
Am considering another one of his selections.

Hello Friends,

First of all the Challenge is still actual and it will be actual to the end of the war (or to the end of the world, whatever you like more).

Conditions are simple:

You donate $100 to bzhtry@gmail.com and get a cue with yellow and blue butterfly splices. Shipping is free Worldwide.

With the donation left your contact information and shipping address or email it to shurikencues@gmail.com


All rised funds go to actual fundrisings from the trusted volunteers. Check the link, send a few bucks straight to them, share.

All information from the Challenge is collected in this thread.

The main idea is the donation with getting a playing pool cue as a reward for your solicitude.

Cuemaking line is all set and ready to almost everything. The process is constant, stable and decentralised. My participation is minimal now and I’m working to make it fully automatic. As long as there is Internet, Digital money and Mail you’ll get your cue.
So don’t waste your bucks on something that makes you fat or stupid. Join the Shuriken Army today!

I finally came up with the optimal Butterfly Effect cue.
It is complete pool cue with a white shaft made of Hornbeam black, white, yellow and blue. The model is called Arrow 2p.

Parameters are the followed:

Length: 60 inches (30\30)
Weight: 19oz
Tip: 12mm
Butt: 30mm
All these parameters are custom.

Any other custom request is possible, but will cost some extras. So I’ve created a special section that called a “Butterfly Effect Synergy” on our website.

This pool cue is ought to be $100 shipped and we’ll keep it this way.

Thanks for reading!
Stay strong! Keep up making good deeds!
Donated. Thank you for all you do.

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that ping.
Yes, it is still active. Cues are building and sending gradually.
There are 44 cues to go for now, 46 have been sent and 5 are in the processing.

Also @evergruven has made a good bust. The auction for his cue from the challenge. The winner will get 1 extra cue from me. Also 10 donators who will participate the Challenge from this moment will get their cues in 1 - 1.5 month. Gonna use the money from the auction for materials.
Parameters such as weight, length, tip and butt diameters are custom. Feel free to request a cue blank instead of a cue.

For this challenge I've chosen the simpliest model and obtainable components so $100 may cover selfcost of the cue + delivery and left something for a donation. Now it's about $15 from a cue. And it's quite good help, frontline stands on small donations from huge amount of people.

Besides closing the debt, my goal for now is to add a bit uniqueness to the design. And speed up the processing, so you get a cue shipped straight after donation. I have an ideas, working on them.

All info from the challenge I'm also collecting here

Sneak peek for our new absolutely exclusive splice no one ever made in fullsplice cue business. For now we call it "compressive". Soon will be available for orders. Any wood combination, any splices geometry

Man, I can't get this geometry out of my head! I'm imagining it with your purple color, with the white and black. I'll be keeping my eyes out for when it's available.

Just wanted to let everyone know I got my cue yesterday. It's a good playing cue. The balance is great on it and it feels good in the hands. The tip is a little smaller than I'm used to but it sure shoots well!

Pretend I am a complete newbie -- well, let's not pretend, LOL -- is there a real difference between the radial pin and the 3/8x10? Thanks.

I’m not a newbie and I asked a similar question. Let me find the link so you dont get lectured about using the search feature. either are a fine choice. The radial is $20 less, so I tossed it in to add to the resource fund. It’s not much but goes further there than here. Shooter08
 

Thank you very much! I actually did some searches and that thread didn't come up, at least not early in the searches. Thanks again.
 
Hello Friends!
Finally we have an opportunity to make a finished product. So it is time to process your cues from the challenge!

10 month ago I've promised a cue for every donation from $100. And there was an enormous support from you guys! 72 donations for a short period of time and still coming. All funds were sent to the frontline to help Ukrainian soldiers and volunteers who I know personally. Equipment, medical kits, optics have been bought. Your money has saved health and lives. It is hard to overestimate. I appreciate your support very much.

So it's 72 cues to go. I'll keep my word and every person who participated in the challenge will get a cue in Ukrainian flag colors. Please check your emails and send a response with desired parameters such as weight, length, tip and butt diameters. We'll start the processing, but won't promise any time frame yet. One by one they all will be sent. If you haven't got the email please check "spam" folder or email your parameters to shurikencues@gmail.com

I'd like to make this collection special. A cue with the story, something you could present to your grandchildren in decades. A dense and handy billiards instrument in the first place of course.

Also I'm adding a bit of customization to the challenge. 4 options with an extra cost and benefits.

1) Cue blank. It is free for a person who has participated in the challenge. You pay only $50 for delivery.

2) Cue butt with custom length, weight, balance point, jump/break split, joint type, ringwork, joint and bumper diameters. It costs $150 extra + delivery.

3) Complete cue with a plain black or white shaft. Custom length, weight, balance point, jump/break split, joint type, ringwork, joint and bumper diameters, tip type and diameter, shaft taper. It costs $200 extra + delivery

4) Complete cue with a spliced black or white shaft. Custom length, weight, balance point, jump/break split, joint type, ringwork, joint and bumper diameters, tip type and diameter, shaft taper. It costs $300 extra + delivery

Estimated processing time is 2 month.

Extensions ($50), joint protectors ($20) and extra shafts are available.
Available joints: Radial, 3\8-10, Uniloc QR.
Available Tip options: Carbon, White, Brass, Fiber.
Available collar options: Wood, metal, wood\metal, checkers, plain black.

Send Benjamin Franklin to the battlefield to protect human rights in 2023 and fight in a hybrid war against authoritarian agressor. Today we have a great opportunity to help Ukrainian Armed Forces MAKING RUSSIA GREAT AGAIN. The more terrorists are being killed today in Ukraine the less terrorist will spread worldwide and exist in the same time period with your children and grandchildren in the future.

Furthermore you'll get a custom fullsplice cue in Ukrainian colors instead.

Butterfly Effect Challenge is still actual.
50/50 for now - a half of money go for materials, a half of money go to actual military requests such as drones, night vision and vehicles. Delivery paid separately when the cue is complete.

To participate in the Challenge all you need to do is sent from $100 to bzhtry@gmail.com Paypal or which is much better to our USDT wallet:

Also for $30 you can add a cool t-shirt to your cue, all sizes available

I have to give credit to Lakeman77. His review is what spurred my purchase and he advised me on the additional options he became aware when ordering his first one. You can meet some really great people on AZ, and learn a thing or two, if you listen. Thx, Shooter08

Bear with me on this one. I am throwing this idea out as a possible marketing idea for Anton and an "ordering" idea for the rest of us -- "Shuriken Cues in School Colors". (The idea is not originally mine. One of our members recently wrote that his BC Cue had the bonus benefit to him as it was done in his school colors. West Virginia if I remember right. I searched for the post but could not find it, so someone please "remember" him to me.)

Just think if LSU fans could get a good cue in Purple and Gold, or for Florida fans -- orange and blue. Y'all get the idea. If I owned a pool hall in a college town, I would keep a couple "School Cues" in stock for resale to local fans.
