Several of you probably saw when Scott posted this cue on AZ. He was tweaking his full-splice jig and process and this was a practice cue. He stated up front that the points were not quite right and discounted it accordingly, so I jumped on it. He thought, and I completely agree, that the cue would be a great player and he couldn't trash it.

It is bloodwood into curly maple, with a lightly textured leather wrap and seven veneers (counting paper). The fit and finish are superb. Scott's UV finish is really sweet. Miters on the veneers are super tight.

The cue plays super solid, is balanced the way I like (slightly forward) and is easy to move the cue ball with. I don't know squat about deflection, but it has a shorter ferrule and I don't notice a big difference. All-in-all, I stole this cue and am very happy with it. Scott was also super easy to work with.

One interesting thing is that it has the longest 5/16-14 screw that I've ever seen on a cue.

Scott

For a "practice cue" that looks great and it's probably better than some put out by other cue makers. Good buy Scott.

Nothing wrong with having an extra player around the house.

Agree, that is one long azz pin.
And pretty she is. Nice snag.
Prolly would have dug for funds myself. Even with that long threaded pin. How long it take to put it together?
Bet it plays jam up.

Very nice.

The bloodwood is a very nice color.

Scott, there's nothing wrong with an extra-long screw.
