I had the camera out, so I decided to take some pictures of my cases and cues.

Joe Porper, faux white snakeskin tube (my first case), custom Jack Justis, some Peanut-colored Ostrich pattern thing, Dan Whitten, Instroke Cowboy, Guiseppe, older Instroke Cowboy.

a better picture of the Jim Buss cue can be seen at:

I've also got a Murray Tucker on order:

There will be no maple, ebony, cocobolo or purpleheart in this cue.

Hope this helps,

Fred

Hi Fred,

Just a wild guess here, but did you happen to get a new digital camera for xmas? /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Greetings, Fred.

Great looking tools! I've never played with a Schuler, and I'm curious about his shaft tapers. May I ask which of the Schuler tapers you've tried and what you think of them?

By the way, thanks for posting the snow scenes. Makes me wish that more CCBers would post views of their home areas or of places they visit. One always enjoys seeing new places.

I shoot and break with the Professional shaft. I've owned a Schuler Pro, but it never worked out for me, so I traded with someone who didn't like his Professional and really wanted a Schuler Pro. Oh the beauty of the Schuler interchangeable shaft/joint system. I would never have been able to exchange sight unseen with any other cuemaker's cue. I've also tried some of the other stiffer tapers, but again, they just didn't do it for me.

The Professional shaft is based on the old-school masters, and for some reason, it is the taper that works well with me. It has some growth in the first several inches rather than a straight delay.

So that's the one up on ebay... Thought it looked familiar.

Close. There was something else...
