I recieved a few requests to post the other RAT cue, so here it is.

The purpleheart isn't the best piece but the handle section is very cool, the ebony has some great grain going nuts and really making the cue.
Ryan builts a very solid cue at a very reasonable price.
If I were to have one complaint about his work it would be the use of this green ring, I am not a fan of green and he uses it a lot.

Green is one of my least favorite colors but I think it goes well with the natural tones of wood. I do have that ringwork in different colors, though.

What color would you have used?

My computer wouldn't let me respond to this thread for some reason.Green is a complementary color to red and purpleheart is probably closer to the red family then the purple family, so green isn't a horrible choice, it's just that I don't like green.I believe that since the rings never touch the PH I would have used something in the red family, close to the color of the PH (if not PH) or something in the blue family, but believe me I know it's not easy to pick colors in these situations.Jim <-----Uses a color wheel at times

My favorite is the dark red, though it's one of my favorite colors so you may want to take that with a grain of salt.

Yep, dark red/purpleheart all the way. The blue isn't terrible either. Purple is right between blue and red, so that makes sense.

I feel red and/or purple are too close to the purpleheart in color. They would blend in. Given the choices mentioned, I'd still stick with green.

I'm with Ryan, green is the choice for me.

Red, blue, or purple although I love PH and think the handle wood is sick not sure how much I like them together. Unique cue from a cool guy though.

Todd <~~loved the green and blue? veneers with the PH in the Tucker cue that Sean had for sale on AZ.
