Here is a little weekend Tascarella eye-candy that I wish I hadn't sold. Enjoy this Tascarella Ebony beauty.

your new cue should look terrific and of course play great

i always wondered why the dashes at the joint. i would have prefered just the wood wrap and joint

I got it from Dean on a trade deal. Played good, but I ended up trading for a steel jointed Tascarella.

I know that this design is really popular but I just don't get the fascination with black cues and ebony in general. In my view it is the least interesting of all cue woods and many cuemakers including the Tascarellas hate making them.
Interesting, do they not like them because they consider them boring, or why do they feel that way?

Yes they find them mundane and very boring and like I said my opinion is very much a minority opinion and in fact almost all the cues they make are ebony based, many just plain janes like the one I commented on. I am working on a design with Pete Jr. and he said he is super excited to just have an opportunity to use something other than ebony. Paul Drexler has told me the same exact thing.

Thanks for the explanation. That's good to know going forward.

i am not a cue maker but i believe ebony is valued for its playability and tonal qualities

Here is a build they made for me. Just a simple "Old Schooler".
Pete and Pete Jr. are real Pro's. Very easy to work with.
East Indian Rosewood into BEM, Brown trim rings with my favorite veneers.

Bob,

Beautiful cue, I especially like the use of rosewood and brown phenolic when not including any inlays. Just a pure, classic ball pocketing machine.

Thanks for sharing and play with it in the greatest of health.

Take Care

Just love how this came out, Bob. Pure beauty & a pure playing killer. The veneers are great, and the Rosewood goes great with them & the brown collars. Enjoy it bunches😎 So very nice.

New Arrival from the Tascarella's. They hit the nail right on the head and built the cue exactly as I requested.

Please enjoy the pics.

Yes! That is a classic, excited for you and hope you enjoy it. How cool would it be to throw that baby into a classic, black 1x2 GTF style case, tuck it under the arm, and stroll into the pool hall, looking like Michael Madsen's character in the Reservoir Dogs?

Thanks for the kind comments, I hit a few balls with it last night and was not disappointed.
