What can I say about these TWO CUES !?
You are right, only the things all of you know right now.

Who would love to play and hit with "THE CUE" :?:
Who would like to play and hit with "THE FULL SPLICE CUE" :?:
And who would like to play with a cue where a "BURTON SPAIN" blank if in it :?:

I think everybody - or not.

And as I never got the chance to hit with an old Szamboti or Balabushka or a Spain by itself,
I thought to get a beautiful cue form Burtons protégé or student would be it, and he is not only that.

"JOEL HERCEK" is a name of his own in the modern billiard industry, at least when you look at the waiting time.
I heared that it went to app. 15 years, before he decided to quit taking orders.
I wanted to own one of Joels cues when I read first about them in the Blue Book - a long time ago.

So as I got the chance to get "TWO" of his signature cues together, I had to take them
Two cues that look perfect side by, but two cues that are a statement of its own, too.

I hope all of you can feel what I feel when I take them out :shock: :shock:

You have the sibling to my coco Hercek cue and TommyT is selling the another one. The fourth is in Joel's personal collection.

You have two great examples of Joel's work. Enjoy those bad-boys!

Scott <<== needs to get with Alton for a set of those joint caps!!!! :shock: 8)

Right...as soon as you take the cues out of the case and you see them, that's when the Cialis moment takes place. My Herceks do the same thing to me everytime. SPROINNNNNGGGGGG! :mrgreen:

The Fanelli??? Hmmmmmmmmmm I didn't even think of which cue it should be, but if that's the one you want to get rid of I guess I'll try to help you out, all that's left now is a price. Want me to make an offer or would you like to set the price?

Jim <----Doesn't want to buy any cues, but will help a friend out if he has to.

Eric(h), I know you thought long and hard about buying these two cues. Are you happy with them? How do you like their play compared to some of your other cues?

Scott <<== full of questions

Scott, sorry that I didn´t answer that long but I had to play with them more then two minutes.
Know I played at least 15 minutes with one of them, and I would say the feeling in my stroke hand is awesome.
I thought my Ginas, my Cog and my Chudy would be the top, but these two are at least even if not better.

I think the "FEEDBACK" in my stroke hand is the best I ever felt, but I don´t know if all people out there would like that.
I love it, but as I am one of these "LOW DEF" idiots since some years I will not have it as my playing cue, and of course,
they are both to pricey and valuable to me, to use them as my every day player :mrgreen:

I know what you mean about the feel of Joel's cues. I also love them.
