I am looking at getting a new cue. One that will have Cocobola points. I was wondering if anyone has or has seen a cue with Cocobola points with an attractive stain. I don't know if I like the look of the Cocobola against the natural stain and haven't really seen any pics of Cocobola against a stain. The cue maker said that grey looked good. Any opinions would be appreciated.

I have a Pechauer IV-2 from Seybert's with Cobobolo points and ivory diamonds. The butt is Cocobolo and also ivory diamonds. I had the ebony handle no wrap added. Take a look at it on Seyberts. It looks and shoots great!!

Ebony looks nice with Coco as well. Check out this gorgeous omen: http://omencues.com/153-cue.jpg

Auerbach Custom Cues (John Parker) makes a beautiful Cue. You can have just about anything you want. If you will send me an email, I'll send you several pictures of beautiful Cues that are available. Several Cues are Cocobolo with Milled Points (not veneers) of Exotic Burl &amp; other exotic woods. Give John a try... you'll be glad you did.

I have contracted with John Parker, of Auerbach Custom Cues, to make me a new line of BreakRAK Break Cues. That's how much I like John Parker's work. You can see the new BreakRAK BreakCue in a couple weeks on www.breakrak.com (http://www.breakrak.com)

Your answer depends entirely on the pieces of wood you are using. Cocobolo varies in color and grain patterns from dark brown to red and even yellow. It can be very even grain or wild curly grain.

I assume you want or will have a maple forearm. You could use different woods instead to create the effect you want.

A Scruggs I bought recently has gray stain with ebony points and natural veneers. It looks terrific - more so in person than in the pictures - here's the link:

Scruggs (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&amp;item=3633298634&amp;category=21 212&amp;rd=1)

You can see, it looks great on this cue.

However, I had a Huebler with marginal birdseye and gray stain - it looked terrible. It had cocobolo points but the maple looked bad stained because there was not enough figure. Should have saved that piece for a 2 X 4. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

I think stain brings out the beauty in highly figured woods - but it's the wood itself that matters.
