I have the identical cue, or else I would be breaking the doors down trying to get to you to buy this cue.
I love mine and know how great you have it priced for the next owner.
Special. Beautiful. A playing Monster. Heirloom Keeper.

This is my dream cue, look at my Runde playing cue, notice anything! I cannot believe this is still here. I honestly think it is the classiest cue I have seen on this site in the years I've been coming here. The price is to low IMHO, somebody is going to get a steal. Bank robbery here.

It's still not sold because all the young players are pairing up carbon shafts with any old butt,I see this more and more.
A lot of the younger players have never heard of the now famous cue makers.
The old timers that would love a Szam are too old to play or have died.
And some that would like this cue can't afford the very reasonable price of $7800.
It's going to get harder and harder to sell cues in this price range I think.

another problem is the strength of the US dollar. for someone in Canada like me, it's almost at a 1.4 exchange rate. I would've bought this by now if the exchange rate wasn't so bad.

Wtf, this being given away. I’m gonna start donating plasma. This is what the kids call “Him”, you can’t go wrong. “Bushka Ain’t got nothing on me!” This is the crown Jewel of any collection!
