The cue arrived last Friday, and I have to say it is like no other. The full-splice blank is eight ebony points in Birdseye maple. It is 19.6 ounces, balance is 19" from the butt. Joint is ivory over stainless steel, butt cap is ivory over phenolic with a beautiful design. The black leather wrap has absolutely no detectable seam. This is some of the best workmanship I have ever seen. Tony added the silver inlays in the joint collars to make the cue "special". The most important thing is that is the most solid hitting cue I have ever played with, and it is so precise. I try to use side English only when necessary and this cue makes it easy. Just hitting slightly off center is enough to get the required cueball action. I will play with it for the next few months and maybe forever.

You may want to edit those pictures so they fit on the screen. YMMV

Frank-

Yeah, that was weird, sorry about that. The pictures were much smaller and had better resolution before I uploaded them to Comcast. I could not figure a way to change them after the upload, and no matter what I did before, they got munged in translation. Any ideas?

They are 2452X727 pixels or some such. Reduce the size and reload them to your Comcast page. 1000 pixels wide and keep the aspect the same and they should fit and still be big enough. The bottom pix on this page ( http://www.frankglenn.com./page3.html ) are 500 pixels wide and give plenty of detail. I use Photoshop, but you can do this in most any photo managment software. Photoshop also lets you "save for web" and turns them into rather small gifs (small as in size of the file) that do not look bad. It's a very good program.

I have deleted the images and will reload them properly sized at a later time. Sorry for the inconvenience-
