As VIATTORRE CUSTOM CUES will be retiring this June from making wonderful handcrafted cues, I would like to share with you the rest of my collection of VCC's set, and one of the last VCC's made, which I've gotten yesterday, 061907, from Jackson himself (i got my 1st VCC last Nov `06).

My set of CUSTOM CUE COLLECTION is composed of break, jump, play, & reserve play cues wherein my very own concept & designs are skillfully crafted by VIATTORRE CUSTOM CUES. The set comes in pairs, the HEIHO & the DAISHO. The HEIHO consists of solid plain janes: a solid rare Kiiroi as break cue and solid Purple Heart as play cue. While the DAISHO set has a jump cue with Purple Heart handle & rare Kiiroi wood diamond inlays & butt sleeve, and a reserve play cue with Kiiroi forearm & butt sleeve, Gaboon Ebony handle with diamond Ivory inlays (2 sides), and rings of Mother of Pearl dots in Gaboon Ebony at ABE. The designs of the rings of the HEIHO are similar, while the rings of the DAISHO are the same.

As far as we know, the DAISHO is the FIRST set of cues that has ever used the SAMURAI'S SWORD as its inspiration... Therefore, if you see this design later on (I hope no one else imitates this), remember that this design came from me & VCC, and YOU'VE SEEN IT FIRST ONLY HERE at billiardsdigest.com...hehehe /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Most of these pics are shot by Jackson himself using my new digicam so we're not yet familiar with settings of the cam. Anyway, enjoy the pics (I hope they are not too dark `coz there's something wrong with the brightness of my monitor):

And to Jackson & his team, good luck on your very much anticipated vacation! You guys deserve a very relaxing break after years of climbing & finally reaching the top of the tower (Via-Torre)!

I didn't know Jackson was retiring. They have built up a good name over the years. Hate to see them go.
