Another Southwest, but an original, "Jerry Franklin"

When you read my other post - the one from my Southwest cue - then there is nothing more to say. :mrgreen:
I am collecting what ? My collection is named how ? - "Typical Collection".
So no question, I had to have a Southwest, but I thought it should be a Franklin, what do you think :?:

After Sean Brown helped me to get my first Southwest cue, I liked it that much that I had to get another one.
But of course it should be different. That was the reason why my decision was to get a Jerry Franklin.
I mean, I still wanted the classic "6 Pointer", nothing more and nothing less, but a Pau Ferro one would be nice.
I often heared that Pau Ferro was Jerry´s favorite wood and that means something to me, too. 8)

And as so often before, I got lucky one more time.
A great AZ member sold this awesome masterpiece from Jerry Franklin, and I got it.
Jerry´s most classic "6 Pointer" as we all know, but this time no rings at the wrap positions - the more classic one :mrgreen:

The cue is from 1991 and weighs in at 19,5 oz. It has a South American Pau ferro nosepiece and six central american cocobolo
points with red and white veneers. Original Irish Linen wrap and a base buttpiece of pau ferro. Finished with a little butt
cap out of cocobolo and the signature 7-3 slot design in white.

That is a part of the description from "Laura Franklins" letter of authentification I got with the cue.

And to tell you the truth, I think Jerry was right - Pau ferro hits and feels awesome. :mrgreen:

I only made a couple of balls with it, because I want to let it as unplayed as possible,
but the ten or fifteen minutes I tryed where not bad at all. I even tought it felt better
then my newer southwest, but maybe thats only in my mind, you know. :mrgreen:
