Does anyone here ever played with one? What do you think of the feel and quality/workmanship of his cues?

I've never played with Nitti Cues but he is a member of American Cuemakers Ass. His quality must be good to obtain membership as a cuemaker. If you get the chance, go to Valley Forge in March. He usually has a stand set up with all his cues, and he's always there. They are nice looking cues. Think about it.

I owned a Nitti cue a few years back. I know very little about workmanship issues, but the cue was beautiful, and felt great (much better than my current moochie /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif ). I had it all through college but sold it when I got out to help cover some moving expenses.

Hey Dooz,

I like your collection. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif rukiddingme has a Chris Nitti SP and I seen one just purchased off the net buy a guy at the hall. Chris does some nice work and his cues are pricey. Definitely a cue for your collection. IMHO

I got to play with a friend's Nitti, it hits great and the workmanship is top-notch. Checked out your collection also, very nice....I couldn't help but notice the Kersenbrock theme (with the exception of the Scruggs) being a Kersenbrock owner myself. Are you waiting for a cue from Ed Young? I haven't gotten to play with one of his cues yet, but I hear they hit fantastic.

Mike,
Thanks for the complements on my small collection. You are the first person that mentioned the theme I was going for. Im still hunting for more Omegas, DPKs (I wish) &amp; Ed Young. As for the Ed Young, Im 100% sure that I got scammed out of my money. See thread:

Im trying to recover the money by going to the authorities. Anyways, I saw this Nitti cue that looks awesome and thought about adding it to the collection. The Scruggs, well that was an impluse buy. I can always move that coz for some reason lots of players love Scruggs sneaky. Im also trying to get another Omega/DPK sneaky since they are pretty rare. Only 10 were made according to Mike Bender.

I know for a fact Fed X charges $36.00 overnight for one cue so the weight doubled would be the $72.00 that would make sence to me. Then again destination might effect the charges.

Chris,
I found out after I mailed the mo's that he lives only 60miles away. Ive priced out the shipping using UPS, FedEx and USPS and they all come in under $50 fully insured for overnite shipping.
