One of the last Viattorre Custom Cues

As VIATTORRE CUSTOM CUES has retired last June `07 from making wonderful handcrafted cues, I would like to share with you the rest of my collection of VCC's set, and one of the last VCC's made, which I've gotten last June 19, `07, from Jackson himself (I got my 1st VCC last Nov `06).

My set of collection is composed of break, jump, play, & reserve play cues wherein my very own concept & designs were skillfully crafted by VIATTORRE CUSTOM CUES. The set comes in pairs, the HEIHO & the DAISHO.

As far as we know, the DAISHO is the FIRST set of cues that has ever used the SAMURAI'S SWORD as its inspiration
... Therefore, if you see this design later on (I hope no one else imitates this), remember that this design came from me & VCC, and YOU'VE SEEN IT FIRST ONLY HERE at AZB...hehehe :grin:

what did you do to get the jump shaft so heavy??

Not sure, but I guess it's because of:
1) the quality of the shaft
2) shaft diameter of 13+ to 22.5mm fr tip to joint w/ conical taper
3) brass female joint
4) or all of the above:)

Interestingly though, it doesn't feel heavy and I can even jump from a ball's distance between the cb & the interfering ball
