Hey....i just bought a jackon cue off the internet and wondered if anyone plays with one? or knows much about them. I knew a guy back in my hometown that used to shoot with just a plain one. This one is birdseye with floating cocobolo points w/turquiose inlays and rings. has a 5/16 -14 joint but with a gap of threads on the joint pin. So a normal shaft with that joint (I.E. schon/joss) wont fit on there. I'll throw some pics up.....its supposedly one of a kind? i went on jacksons site www.jacksoncue.com (http://www.jacksoncue.com) and they have a pic of this design, but with different materials. any imput would be awesome. If you would know its approxmiate worth that would be cool too. its prolly 90%...few little blemishes in the butt.

Can't say I've heard of it before. Looks like an Irish linen wrap. Off hand I could see it selling for $225.00.

i have a few friends that play with jackson cues and they play great and they can fetch a pretty good amount if you ask the right folks. they kinda remind me of a mcdaniels.

Yea, it seems to hit really well. I sure wish there was a way to lighten it up though. I looked and there is an aluminum weight bolt in it /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif which seems weird to me that they would do that when it is approx 20oz. I think they have weight bolts that goes up to like 3 oz so i have no clue who would want a 23oz playing cue!....

Fred - Ive tried to download that issue but i have been having a heck of a time. Do you have to register? cause i did that and they said i was supposed to get some password. I couldnt even find the issue to download. am i doing something wrong?

I had a Jackson and I thought it was a great cue. They are in a tough market competing against a company like Schon, which dominates the upscale limited production custom cue market. Look what happened to Nova cues.

Just looking at your cue, I would guess the "retail" would be about $800, with a "street price" of $400 to $500. Like Schon they use real ivory and ebony, and in your case turquoise. I like their joint design, which is pretty beefy and unique.
