Tex cue out of PA.
Why these are special is that the ivory diamond at the top of the points is not an inlay.
It's spliced into the wood before he does the points somehow.
Please don't ask how, I have no idea.

Ebony/burl.
All white is Ivory.

Enjoy.

Very cool. It looks like maybe it was glued up along with the points (like when it's all wrapped up in surgical tubing). Seems like that would waste a good amount of ivory though, so it's probably wrong ;).

Very cool. I need to inspect that up close with Mr. Showman's x-ray specs.

I heard they hit like they have a metal rod in them.

Tex has his own ways, that's for sure.
Fanelli started to figure out how Tex did it, and took it to the next level in some of the last crazy blanks he made.
Check out the blank on the right. ---------> http://forums.azbilliards.com/showthrea ... ht=fanelli


chris G<--------thinks the cue hits great


PS- Here is the only 8 point blank Tex ever made. He did 16 of these diamond shaped splices in the forearm.
