I upgraded my playing cue to a 60" almost 3 years ago. Ever since I convinced myself this is what my long reach needed to jump that hurdle in my game. So then I decided along with this I wanted a less expensive 60" cue as my "safe to bring to a bar" playing cue. also my J/B cue is a 57" Varney. To go back and forth between this and a 60" playing cue(s) is difficult.

Don't get me wrong I love both my Josey Ebony Sneaky Pete and my Varney Sneaky. Both cues have more then one shaft. The Josey has 3, OB-1 w/ Sniper tip. Varney modified 314 w/ Sniper tip, and the stock also with a Sniper tip (notice trend?). All have no damage and are nick free, and as far as I know roll straight. The Varney stock shaft does have a bit of wobble, but I also bought it that way (used).

The Varney only has the stock shaft but both cues have a 3/8-10 pin. All the shafts have matching black collars and are interchangeable. Now you Josey fans may be thinking; Joseys don't have 3/8-10 pins. Well this one has a Black epoxy G-10. the cue took a fall on my floor (carpet) and the radial pin came loose. So I then sent it for work and had the G-10 fitted and it really livened up the hit and evened out the balance.

<span style="color: #FF6666">What I am looking for is a standard 58" cue idealy w/ a 314-2</span>

I have lots of $$$$ invested in both these cues and am will to lose my ass to go back to what I shot with for over 20 years. Oh and the wife won't let me spend money we no longer have with the purchase of our new house.

Here are all the cues. The bottom shaft is the stock Varney with what ever tip it came with (KV chime in if you'd like). Remember it does have a wobble and the collar is not black. And in case anyone noticed the blue chalk ring on the ferrule it is because I used this as my Bar cue. Remember all the cues are 60" 30/30 split

This is to show they are OB-1 and 314 (Modified Varney ferrule on the 314 that really spins the CB)

You should post the Varney cue on AZbilliards. There are some people there who like the Varney cues. I don't know anyone else who thinks they are worth anything.
