My new to me Sugartree

Ok so I've basically been trying to get a Sugartree since the day I joined this site.

I literally joined to make an offer on one when I saw one I REALLY wanted but kept missing out by an hour, a half an hour, 20 minutes... You name it. I kept missing them.

Ended up emailing Eric and he agreed to build me a personal cue, just for me... Unfortunately I'm sure he ended up busy or something but I hadn't heard back from him in quite some time. I understand he's not wanting to build cues full time but REALLY wish I could have/will hopefully one day get a personal made for me Sugartree. Hell, what I want isn't anywhere near as fancy as this one. I want a merry widow with a segmented handle.

But how could I resist this when my friend offered it to me?

I don't think anyone could have said no...

I've never ever hyped up a cue in my head as much as Erics. I knew from the first Sugartree I saw that I had to have one and felt like they would just have to be monster playing cues. After the first few balls I hit with this I couldn't believe it actually exceeded my expectations.


Anyways, I'll get to the pictures now

I want a plain jane and ended up with his fanciest cue to date.. Funny how that one worked out. Still dreaming of my own personal one... One day I hope.

That's just a hair I didn't notice... Not a scratch

If these points aren't even I'd be damn surprised. I can't tell 100% for perfect sure but I'd bet money they were.

Titanium pin so cool...



And YES one of those shafts DOES have a small amount of bluing. I know some of your jaws surely just dropped but this is not and will NOT be a closet queen. I play with this cue every single day for several hours. I am very careful with it, mind you, but Eric builds his cues to be PLAYED. Not kept in a damn case or safe.

I'm going to get a photographer friend of mine to take some way better pictures than I'm capable of doing. I just couldn't resist. I've never been happier with a purchase... I REALLY REALLY love this cue.


And NO, don't PM me asking if this cue is for sale. I'd turn you down even if you offered me DOUBLE what I paid. I would consider trading it for a 10th anniversary Sugartree, *maybe*. But even that's probably a no. I love this cue a little more than I think I should.

Thank you SO much Trav. I've never been happier with a cue purchase or really anything I've bought.

Eric, I really really love your work. If you read this please build me a personal player! I don't think anyone likes your work more than I do! lol...

I know what it's like to finally catch that dream cue. Congrats my friend! Enjoy it!!!!

Oh, I'm not saying I don't love it, I do... But it isn't exactly my dream cue.

My dream cue would be a segmented handle merry widow from Eric made for me. That's what I really really want.

I'm still hoping one day.

Sweet cue. Glad you are happy with it. Nothing like finding a gorgeous cue that plays as good as it looks.
