This Kikel Cue was fun to design. I did all the design work except the rings, Dave came up with those. I worked on this design for quite a while before I settled on the final version. I love traditional elements, and I try to arrange and use combinations that will make them look fresh and make people say..."why didn't I think of that".

The great thing about this cue is, it is the first cue I had every detail of the specs I like best from the cues I own, or have owned, combined into one cue. Shaft sizes, shaft taper, butt size, butt taper, weight, balance point, joint configuration, tips (including height of the tip), ferrules, the whole enchilada. Sometimes you order a cue that you think is perfect for you (and I have many times) only to find out when you get it and play with it it doesn't fit your taste. Well, this one WAS perfect. It is the best playing cue (for me) I have ever owned. So what do you do with the best playing cue you have ever owned...get a matching case, of course.

Here is the original design drawing I sent to Dave.
