I just bought a Powerball ticket, and I'm trying to decide what I'll do with my winnings. It's important to be prepared to deal with life's challenges.

One thing I'll want to get myself is a really fine cue.

My cue's butt, handle, and forearm will consist of a single sleeve of quilted maple on a warp-resistant laminated core. The sleeve will have a golden-amber stain--not too dark--and a glass-clear finish. No points, and no wrap! There will be a black half-inch butt cap, a half-inch maple-and-ebony Southwest-style ring assembly above the butt cap, and another of these half-inch ring assemblies at the joint. There will be no additional joint collar. The joint screw will be a stainless Radial. The cue will have two stiff shafts with moderately hard white ferrules and 12.8mm Sumo tips. The shafts will be plain--no rings. The fit of the shafts to the collar will be perfect--no radiusing, no cokebottle effect. Total weight of the cue will be 18.5 oz. I'll keep this cue in the pool room at my comfortable but modest house overlooking the fjord at Trondheim.

What will your Powerball cue look like?

I hope you do not forget about me after you win. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I think i would like a Mike Bender cue, something a little simple by his standards, but solid hitting maybe Snake wood with curly maple points, six up six down, a few checkered ivory rings. And a fat pin , small ferrule with a sniper tip. I'm not sure about the shaft i would probably opt for a Pred. oh oh and i want a matching break jump/cue(no points) short ferrule and a WB tip. oh and a 2x2 NYCASE leather with many pockets and handles /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Sounds fine, Naz. Hmm, a jump cue and a case--more decisions...

Strong b'eye maple.
Cored with old growth rock maple.
Olivewood handle.
Burl windows on the sleeve.
No points. B'eyes are nature's inlays.

Definitely 4 points of Snakewood with 3 or 4 veneers and diamond enlays. Probably 4 diamond enlays in the butt sleeve with the same veneers. Maybe even a Hoppe style butt.

Does it have to be just one cue? /ccboard/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Naz, Bender only makes cues with points in multiples of 5. I dont think he makes cues with 6 points. Heres a link to my dream cue from Bender:

The C-Man loves the black-and-white look! Can't say I blame you, Chris. I kinda like Nitti's black-and-white work--simple and elegant.

Regards,
Alan

I love this design. http://www.seyberts.com/pechauer/jpseries/jp13.htm
I think it would look great in this design with silver in the large diamonds, and the small diamonds in the ovals. The points and ovals would be turquoise. Smooth black leather grip. Most of all, it would have to feel like it was part of me.

You're buying ONE cue if you win the powerball?

That's insane.

But if I won the pick 4, here are some "dream" cues I would get:

Not yet. My lathe is only good for repairs. /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif I'll have the one I need eventually though. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif Then, learning how to use it to do this type if work is yet another thing. /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

You haven't seen my friend's ebony Tad with ivory inlays and snakewood points and borders.

Yeah, kind of a western look. /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif

I must be easy to please. I'd just want my Schon refinished. However that Hercek cue someone listed is pretty sweet.

I don't run fast enough to catch this dream. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif It is pretty.

Have you ever seen "Dem Bones" By Thomas Wayne or "Torture" made by Edwin Reyes??? My power ball cue would have to make them seem warm and fuzzy.

SW's would be great but 8 years?
My olivewood would only take 3 years. /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
It's still at 18% MC. /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif
