I was under the impression that they only make pointed cues now. They don't accept any orders for Merry Widows. If I am wrong please do say so, as I am a bigger fan of widow cues than pointed cues.Well I am on list for Southwest, might sell my Spot/cue for Right profit, if someone is interested. Other wise it will be Merrow Widow SouthWest BEM, with Cocobolo ring.
I have never owned one, but have hit with several.I had a Jerry made cue,goncola alves and pau farro with fancy rings.I got it used when prices were not so crazy for such a plain cue. Try as I might I never really cared for feel of the legendary SW hit.Just my 2 cents.
