I traded Hercek #2 to vinniebabarooch for this one (plus cash :roll: ). This is one of four cues that Joel made with these inlays. Each one is slightly different; veneers, buttcap, speartips, without engraving. He liked the pattern so much that he made one for his personal cue collection.

When I asked Joel what he would charge to make this cue now (for insurance purposes), he said that he would never do it again. When pressed, he joked "$25,000!" :P He said that the middle ivory inlays on the sleeve were a pain to work with and kept breaking at the thin part. He had to make a bunch of extras due to the breakage.

The cue shows several of Joel's easily-recognizable design elements; intricate ivory inlays, engraving on the ivory ovals, speartips on the points (which he doesn't necessarily like, BTW), ivory index rings and the wonderfull point dimensions of his full-splice construction.

The cocobolo has nice figuring, even in the points. And the veneers are hardwoods. The piloted ivory joints plays great. It has a very balanced overall design to my eye.

I like everything about this cue. Its an awesome example of how to take make a fancy cue while still keeping it simple and classic.

And I LOVE the uniqueness of the inlays in the points (instead of the same old diamonds or peacocks you see in so many) and the little etched design in the buttsleeve!

Awesome cue Scott!
