Even the masters need a touch up sometimes.

Sorry to hear of his passing.
The pool world has lost an asset and a fantastic cue maker.

Thank you for these pictures of Master Reyes.
I think of my first encounter with him whenever I take a look at my ER cue.

Sad to see that there will be no more great work coming from Master Reyes. :frown:

Wow, Don. Thanks for sharing those pictures.

I am still in shock over what happened to Edwin Reyes, but I will never forget, and the world is now watching.

RIP, Edwin. You are sorely missed.

I miss my friend really bad.
I still struggle over over the fact he was taken away.
Last time I spent time with him, he, me and Linds were having dinner over Jack's Ridge ( a nice restaurant overlooking the Davao City Gulf ).
Two Sundays ago, Efren won a tournament on the same mall I saw Edwin directing a tournament qualifier for last year's event there.
I did not go to the tournament b/c I would have really struggled in keeping my mouth shut and not asking the people there what they are doing for Edwin's justice.

I still have Edwin's name on Yahoo messenger. I still send him text messages.
Edwin was working on this cue to be his most elaborate cue before he was taken away.

Last ER Cue

I am auctioning off my ER cue for the education of his kids. It is the last cue that Edwin made. It's an unfinished project, no signature, no wrap, and no varnish (the white marks on the butt cap is soy wax, which I use to preserve the unfinished wood...

7 Ebony Full spliced points on curly mapleforearm.
3/8" G10 Pin (which has the same material as the airplane's propeller).
ER Low Deflection Shaft (with 4 through slots).

I was teasing Edwin a few days before he passed that I was going to bring it to Linds for finishing. I ordered and paid for this cue about two years before he died. It is also the last cue stick he played with.

Make your proposal. I will maintain confidentiality. The offer that would be best for his kids will make it. I have not sold anything here but I am sure Blowfish or John (JBcues) or Joey (in Cali) can help in processing this.

Joey, there is not a day that passes that I do not remember our friend Edwin.

Edwin was a master who passed before his time.I am a little bit surprised that he was using a filler but he was great neverless.He stood up for what he believed in, and got murdered in exchange.Here in the states they would have caught the animals who did it.
R.I. P. G-d bless his family.

It ain't over till it's over my friend. Revenge is mine says the Lord. We do not have to do a thing but love one another. The other Master will handle it. The universe is as it should be. Edwin's spirit lives on.

I see the date of the pic. Absolutely the week of Kadayawan in Davao.
Oddly enough, the last time I had lunch with Ed was when we went to Jack's Ridge.
I hope you still have the pics.
When I open my pool place down there, I will have a tourney in honor of Ed.
Joey~Misses Ed badly, realllllly badly~
