or you might just not have to save up lol .

i need to stop looking at cues , one i liked i had to back out because my chihuahua
needs surgery to remove some bad teeth . and that is 1,500 dollars . but she is more important then a pool cue / furbabies are family she is 14 ,

and i know some hurt and she cant tell they hurt but she wont let me touch her mouth and you can smell a little rotten smell . this popped up this week . im thinking on abcesed and broke open . she is on pain meds til i can get her in .


im gonna try to save up for a bushka or gus . i know , but if dream dream big .

i will get there and if other med problems arise family first .

I’m not saving for any right now, I just got the cue that I’ll probably be buried with.

But I wanted to applaud you for taking care of your poor pooch. I lost my little black schnauzer a couple of years ago and I’m still not over it. :(

Good on ya...!

I wouldn't say I'm saving for any cue. I do have money set aside if the gentleman that owns my old Finelli decides to let me purchase it back from him.

I've purchased quite a few cues since the pandemic, and have only been able to hit four of them.
I'm sure there is a Holy Grail in there somewhere, I have one on the way that's a
candidate for Holy Grail, so I'm not looking or saving up for cues.

X2 on both fronts. I like to look but am more into de-clutter mode than buy more mode.

Cues have popped up lately I had to have, and I have no idea why..
A rare hard to find sought after cue becomes available by someone I know,, good price, I gotta have it.
One day I will get bored and list it for sale, then buy something else.
Round & round, and everyone wants to trade.

Hope your puppy gets better. As for the cues, I dream from time to time about a few. I would love to own one of the original Runde Schons. Aside from that, in an alternate reality I'd love to own a Hercek cue, but saving enough to own one will probably never happen in my tax bracket.

The last cue I had to save money to buy was almost 50 years ago in college. I have had several very nice cues since then, but none of them involved making a choice between daily needs and owning the cue. There are too many good, low priced, possibly used cues out there.

Watch the obituaries. After I board the bus, you can contact my next of kin. Your cue is in the lead box with the label "The most special I cue I owned." :)

I have a closet full of cues if anybody is looking, I am getting completely out of the pool business and taking up knitting. Wish I had done it 50 years ago, think of how many sweaters I could have .

Not assembling funds for any cues in particular but I do have several customs and a few blanks in the works.

There are one or two cues in the secondary market I would move on if they were for sale from dealers with better reputations. I leave gambling to the casinos.

You could put together a Triple A knitting team, and trade your cues for vintage knitting
needles & yarn.

Mr. Joel Hercek

The Golden Fleece I never have located.......,Joel Hercek, 4 ebony points, veneers, classy design and
has to have a flat faced ivory joint with shafts 12.75 -13 mm (4.0 oz min), butt weight 14.5 - 14.75 ozs.

I posted WTB threads for 3 years, even offered a reward or finders fee, was willing to offer my Prewitt or
even my Scruggs radial joint plus cash to get what I want but the opportunity never came up. Several cues
were offered but the specs never matched up to what I want. And when you pay this much for a pool cue,
you should never settle, always get what you want or else just pass on a cue that I’ve done 6-7 times.
