View Full Version : Capone Cue Arrives!

Well, it took four months instead of two, but it is well worth the wait. He finished the cue for me at the Derby City Classic where he is now. 20 oz, ebony forearm, black leather wrap, four purple heart points with white veneers( and the coolest star-trek com badge shaped ivory inlays in each point. The points and veneers are razor sharp and the veneers are set like a point inside a point, really delicate work. The butt is also ebony with a beautiful and tasteful ivory design using 12 inlays. Flat-Faced Stainless steel joint with Titanium pin, balance point 19" from butt cap. The cue is solid as a rock and hits extremely well, smooth, strong and silent. He also remembered to sign it in one of the points. This was worth the cash and the wait. I would recommend his work to anyone wanting a great custom-

Congrats on your Capone! You'll have many a good year with your cue, as I have had with mine. Mike's a great guy and builds one heck of a good cue. Enjoy! Pictures? (probably saw this cue in some state of assembly, but can't say for 100% sure).

Thanks a lot. I don't have a website, but PM me with your email and I will snap a couple of pictures and send them to you. I grew up in NJ so this cue really means a lot to me-

Mike owes me a cue. His GF said I'd get one in exchange for that "extra" bag of pecans she got at last year's Expo.
Haven't seen the cue yet....

Go to Yahoo and get into Geocities and create yourself a website and you can load pictures up to it. That is where my favorite links page is and it is free.

Two months late - twice the original lead time - and a happy customer offering a recommendation. No thanks! Is it any wonder that cuemakers are notorious for late deliveries?

Your a mean one MR GRINCH!
Some guys and their dirty laundry.
Hey man enjoy it.
