This cue is very special. The way this cue plays just suits my game. As one would expect, the execution is flawless and that goes for every part of the cue. The elephant wrap looks seamless. If you haven't tried a half joint Searing, do so (try to find one first, lol). Its an enlightening experience.

For those of use who don't know crap about cue construction, or anything else, please explain what you mean by "Half Joint"?

If you look at the stainless steel joint you'll notice that it appears half the size of a normal steel joint. Tillis was one of the first to make these shortened steel joints but Dennis has tweaked the method to make a hit that's "softer" than a full steel joint.

Thanks for the info.

Rich, you also see 1/2 size SS joints on other cues. However, the internal construction on them is different. Dennis experimented with all facets of the joint construction to get the hit/feel combination that he wanted. The result turned out to be this design.

I agree with Si, hit with one and you'll notice a difference. I want this cue! 8)

Scott <<== thanks Ross for letting me try his Searing 1/2 joint

Thanks Scott. I find this interesting.
Obviously, I have hit with and own a few different joint types, including stainless steel. Since I am not a student of the construction, I can't say if I have ever hit with a 1/2 size SS joint. I don't think so.

Now, if someone will send me thier 1/2 size SS jointed Searing, so I can try it out, I would appreciate it. :mrgreen:
