Jules Patterson is learning the craft of cuemaking with master maker Randy Mobley, this is one of his first dozen cues, his first wrapless, first inlays, and first none maple front cue. Of course those are meaningless but I know some people like those monicures. It's clear to see Randy's influence in the point work and with many cool little touches. I don't believe there is much future in cues or pool, but Jules has a bright future and good start. He also made a few colaberation cues with Randy that are a bit more complex with real inlay work. These cues are fantastic quality for a person's first few attempts, it can only get better, I look forward to seeing what Jules can do, and working with him more in the future.

The handle section is SMOKED curly maple, a complex process that Randy has come up with, the color goes all the way through the wood, can't be sanded out. Gives the cue great depth and is super stable.

Very simple yet complex inlays, there is a dash between the boxes that doesn't show up great.

Very cool. Randy should be a great teacher. Can't wait to get a cue from him some day.

Thanks for posting the pics.

Great looking cue. Has it become your "everyday carry"?

No, for the last 6 months I've been playing with the Barenbrugge (red monkey) and the DCC (Dunkle low deflection)
I did give this cue a run because I always like to play with the new cues and give them a chance just to see if it's something special. The trouble was the tip, I have not asked Jules what tips he uses, but I am not a fan of them, I changed one out with a G2 Soft and am now ready to put some time on this cue, I like it much better with the G2.
I don't like to pre-judge a cue based on any construction, but over the last 20 years I have felt that a big pin W2W joint, this is a metal joint.
Time will tell I will let you know.

Jim <----Going to give it a run

Pressed triangle tips
One my darker shaft is one like a rock, way to hard
The lighter colered shaft the triangle feels like mushi, so I will change over the weekend both.
One will get the Zan Hybrid Max and the other G2, don't know soft or medium yet.
Cue feels nice and one more is coming with an ivory ov steel joint :mrgreen:

I am not familiar with Jules. What is his story? It seems like these EDC cues are blowing up my facebook feed....

WOW I never saw this post, sorry Ryan.

I don't know much about Jules, he's in the military and may retire soon, he's been working with Randy and I guess his plans are to tinker with cues once he's done with uncle SAM. I heard some buzz with the first batch of cues but have not heard much since then and it's been over a year now, so I have no news.

Jim <---Not on FB or AZ much so I might have missed something
