Murray hit the Expo floor a little after noon on Friday with two cues in hand. One was a wrapless cue and the other was this one. JA General Jimbo was Murray's designated seller, because he loves selling cues. (inside joke, because I don't think Jim has ever sold a cue)

Several people stopped me on the Expo floor all Friday afternoon asking if I had seen the cues and if they were for sale. When I said "yes, I believe they are for sale", at least 5 people told me they were buyers for the 4-pointer and asked could I find out how much. We all know how elusive Jimbo is, so it took a while for me to track him down and get the price. After I got that info, I couldn't find any of the people who wanted to buy. :roll:

I finally located one of the potential buyers and arranged with Jim and him to meet for the buy. The guy took longer than we expected and Jim needed to run an errrand. So he left the cue with me. I took it out of the bag and started to really look it over. It suddenly dawned on me that it was exactly the cue I had been looking for in all of the booths for the past two days. And, here I was meeting someone else who was going to buy the cue. DOHHHHH!!!!!! I decided then that if he passed on the cue, I was taking it.

Long story longer . . . . . the buyer passed and I immediately claimed squatter's rights on it. I talked to Murray later and we think the cocobolo in this cue came from the same board as the cue Murray made for me last year. They're bro's!!! It's like it was meant to be.

I've only got a few racks on it since, but it is one sweet player. Thanks again Murray and all of the potential buyers who disappeared ahead of me! :mrgreen:

Scott

Some of these pictures show the cue better, hanging out with its bro.

Still can't wrap my head around why my buddy didn't jump all over this cue, Scott. I think he's got mental problems!!! :lol: :lol:

You scored one of the best, IMO, 4-point player's at the show this year. The green veneer trips the hell out of my trigger...and while I normally don't like MOP or Abalone, it SOOOOOOOO works in this cue.

Happy to see your first TCW cue has a playmate, now. They look very, very good together.

Congrats, sir. Glad you snagged it!!!
