My beloved Joe Gold cue - "THE CLASSIC COGNOSCENTI"

I think most of you will know Joe Gold as one of the innovators in many cue related things.
He was one of the first cuemakers who started using the newest CNC Technologies long ago,
and for sure his idea with the joint screw was amazing - i love the look and the feel of his glass epoxy screw.

The first time I saw a Cognoscenti was over a decade ago, in a billiard hall over here in Vienna (Austria).
A good player of that time was able to get his hands on an awesome Cog with complicated points and inlays.
All the guys over here loved that cue, but the player didnĀ“t like it if I remember correctly.
He traded it away in a straight deal to germany for a production JOSS CUE - wow, crazy things happened in the past over here.
Can you believe that - a Cognoscenti Dream Cue traded for a Joss produciton cue - aaaahhhhhhhhhhhh !!
At that time I decided I will own a Cognoscenti in the future, and I love to make my dreams come true. :mrgreen:

That cue I own now, I got from Bill Grassley of cornerstonecues again, but it was not easy, because it was way out of my reach.
But as Bill and me had a great time at the EXPO 2009, and as we had some deals going too,
he came up with another fantastic offer, and I had to take it.
Thanks to Bill for this great masterpiece from Joe Gold - I will never let it out of my hands. :mrgreen:
