Chap called Tony Clifton. He worked for Bill McDaniel for 20 years then when Bill retired Tony started on his own but going back to a more classic style. Unfortunately, his shop was broken into and my Bushka Masterpiece was stolen (other thread) just before Tony shipped to me along with some other unfinished cues. This hurt Tony so much, he stopped making cues, which is a real shame.

Not many of these out there (10 or so) and all of them are amazing. He was a great guy to be around and his communication was second to none (very important when someone is making you a cue). I picked these two up in person at Valley Forge in 2008. I can only hope he comes back to cue making at sometime in the future, Tony is too good and it would be a wasted talent if he never made a stick again, although I appreciate what he went through after the break in.

I believe Tony was involved for a bit but not anymore. The Cash cues are made by other people that worked in Bill's workshop.....nice cues they are too.
