***pancerny titlist conversion***

Just got my Titlist back from Mike Pancerny and figured I'd show some before and after pictures.

The cue is full-splice from joint to bumper...butt has been slimmed down and is just shy of 16 oz and both of the shafts are roughly 4 oz each. One shaft is a 13mm by Mike and the other is made from a Predator FAT blank I sent him. It came with a black bumper, but I have changed it out for a brown one.

The full-splice butt and Predator shaft make this cue play like a Titlist on steroids. I've never played with a Predator shaft before, so sometimes when you step on the gas, you never know just how much action you are going to get. This baby will spin the tires if you don't watch out.

Beautiful.

I am very happy you included the before pics. We don't see that often enough with these.

Also, I dig that you changed the bumper. The brown suits it better.

Thanks for showing off! :grin:

Glad you got it and like it. I have to admit that I was regretting my decision to sell the one piece when I saw it progressing. Next time I might have to have Mike do a conversion for me.

Oh, and I must say "thank you" for providing me the blank. Good blanks that are suitable for conversion are becoming harder and harder to find.

And I am glad Mike used the .835 joint for this cue. The shafts fit my Adam "Hall Of Fame" Balabushka replica perfectly.

Nothing more classic looking than that. I love the green-n-white linen. Beautiful cue , I'm jealous for sure..

I had it made to look like one of the old Balabushka Titlist conversions.

In the picture below, my cue is on top and the bottom cue is an original Balabushka. The original had plain black collars, but I added silver rings to the conversion.

Very nice

I prefer the cue with the brown bumper.

Very nice, the best compliment I give is that I would like to hit a few with it.
