Enjoy

First thanks to Jim who helped me ;-)

It was a funny project in the beginning, I asked Jerry Rauenzahn for an fullsplice blank with 6 veneers and this was the first ones from him.
The Problem was Jerry can't to so many inlays I wanted without an CNC perfect ( it was planned much much more inlays ) so I asked Kenneth Murrell which is also my fav Cuemaker to finish the blank with perfect inlays and his playability.
Both Maker's spoke together and now you see the results.
Kenny get some blanks from Jerry and said to me the BEST fullsplice work he have seen yet.
Kenny not do fullsplice.
I love wrapless but when I found this nice piece of ring tail Lizzard last year in Bangkok and it have to be on, the hole piece was big enough to make the Jps from the feet s.
The Design is my own drawing, everything I designed and it will be only in my Cues, Kenny have to made 3 more of them.
Thanks to Jerry and Kenneth.

I know it's not everyone's color but I love it.


Cheers,
Ralf

Thanks Scott
It's sad we not see often this wood, one Gina Rasputin, one Barry S and the glory Hole I never found is the Peacock lazy s Cue from Bill McDaniel.
This wood works only in Gabon Ebony and ivory ;-)
@Thomas, not understand your comment ( I'm not a Gay), maybe my English is too bad for that Humor
Ralf, still happy what is done :mrgreen:

Now I'm back from Thailand and play with Pinky, all I can say, plays like a Dream, hard but not dead.
First Day shot 45 Ball's in straight pool which I think is not bad with a new Cue ;-)
Everybody said it's not his color's BUT it looks nice and plays very well.

People are scared to be different that's why we see so many crappy copies, there are millions of combos with the amount of different veneer combos these days.
As far as running 45, well I'd venture that not to many people looking at the cue and commenting can run 45 on a good day with their personal playing cue.

That being said I never believe someone who tells me how good a cue plays until they tell me how crappy other cues have played.

Jim <---wants to know what cues played really bad in the past?
