Is this the craziest thing you've ever seen or what?

Sheesh! Can you imagine this in the hands of a pre-shot "stick twirler"? Not on my table!

What great mind or lack of it thought this one up? I can't imagine it would ever be sold. But then you know what P.T. Barnum said----

Playing with it:

"That's a FOUL! Ball in hand and OFF WITH YOUR HEAD!"

Traveling with it:

"Excuse me sir...what's in the case?"
"Just a pool cue."
"Remove it from the case please."
"Sure."
"SECURITY!!!"

Cleaning it:

"I need to have my shaft cleaned."
"Sure...what is that? Red chalk?"
"Nope...my last opponent."

They must be getting bored over at McDermott.

This cue was featured in the 1995 Hands of the Masters calendar. If anyone is interested, I could scan it and send it for you all to see.

Definitely a collectible, not for play...but you all know that!

"Although the INTIMIDATOR can be used conventionally, it does weigh 9.25 pounds with bladed wings that can rip a table or the shooter to shreds. McDermott Cue believes that as long as fantasy cue can propel a cue ball in some playable manner, it IS a cue. 48 inches of exposed blade on large wing and 13 inches on smaller wing"! This is McDermott's sales pitch on their site. I can see the guys sitting around a conference table trying to come up with a name. LOL
