Is this cue for real? Good thing I got an American Express with no credit limit. haha Imagine trying to fine a case for this thing or pulling it out at the local pool hall! Do you think I can use it in APA events?

a. You don't really have to worry about anyone walking behind you when you shoot.
b. At 9.5 pounds, you will get a great workout
c. If you are playing bar rules, you pretty much get to set the rules. Didn't call it off the rail, no problem!

<ul type="square">
a. It discourages a good follow through.
b. At 9.5 pounds you are going to be awful tired after a long match.
c. As already mentioned, finding a case is going to be a pain.

Before I shell out 150 G for a pool stick, I will want Johan to have a look at the tip. Even with his blessing, I still might not. Got to think about this, before I blow a whole month's allowance of pocket money.

I believe I first saw this cue at the 2001 Billiard Expo and at $150K no wonder it's taking a while to sell. /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif

This was at Allen Hopkins show several years ago. It is quite large and impressive. I think it was about 6-7 feet in length. No problems reaching the long shots. This is also good for those bar room fights.

Dee...IIRC, this cue was made almost 20 yrs ago. McDermott used to display it in their booth at the BCA trade show every year. It was not for sale then...but I guess everybody has their price! LOL /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Scott: Yes, well I never actually considered buying it. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif Although it would come in handy in the Florida tournaments. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

How you doing? Still spending to much time on the road?
