Do you guys have pictures of your personal playing cues on the web? It would be cool to see what everyone shoots with. I will get some of mine up when it gets completed.

My playing cue, which was custom built by Dominiak Cues, can be view at www.dominiak.com (http://www.dominiak.com)
The cue is the DW1009 with Cocabolo and Ebony

Here is my Break Cue (http://www.bunjeejump.com/mall/01_jump_break_product.asp) Mine is similar to the 2nd one down but a little lighter in color.

Here's my Leopard Lady Decue from Viking. I took off the original LePro tip and shoot with a Moori tip and I love it! Sorry, I don't have a picture of my custom made Paul DeLillo Break/Jump cue.
The B014 will be delivered first week of August and will be on display at the 2003 CCB tournament in Virginia, middle of September. I'll put up pics though when I get the cue.
04-14-2003, 02:36 PM
That Meucci is a beautiful cue! Black and white seem so elegant together.
04-14-2003, 02:47 PM
Heres my cheap made in taiwan cue /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif..looks good though and besides..its me doing all the shooting /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif -->Brents Cue<-- (http://www.zone.ee/brent/Piljard/cue.jpg?2)
Nope don't have any. Actually people would laugh at my little arsonal althought it's effective. A cut off McDermott for a jump cue, A Rocky break cue and an old R7 Schön playing cue. The R7 hits em sweet though.
04-14-2003, 02:52 PM
That is a beautiful cue Kato
I am having a cue made by a local maker that will look similar to the cue in Photo 2, #4.
However, instead of plain veneers I am having two extra thin points, dark and light outside of the curly maple to set it off. Both forearm and butt. Some ringwork and silver rings. I am getting it for pretty cheap since he is trying to get his name out there. Plus I have known him for several years. Hits like a southwest.
I liked the way it looked when I saw a pic of it, and I bought it off the internet. Now I am not as excited about it because I hate the finish on the cue. I can feel all the inlays and such. I also bought the cue from a dealer (a friend) that was extending his dealers sale price to me a few summers ago when Meucci was giving like 50% off dealer/wholesale price.
04-14-2003, 03:20 PM
If you want it refinished, Jacoby does a wonderful job! I'd definitely recommend them if you're interested.
Thanks, I will think about it.
04-14-2003, 07:22 PM
Here's my play stick: Predator 3K2 (http://www.predatorcues.com/english/3K2wh.jpg)
Here's the jump/break: Lucasi SS2-JB (http://www.cuebuys.com/images/products/LUCLSS2.gif)
The Predator is sweet, a nice feeling, well-balanced, straight-shooting cue. The Predator's owner is not so well balanced, feels a bit 'off', and shoots straight sometimes. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
The Lucasi is a good beatin' stick.
04-14-2003, 07:32 PM
my cue (http://www.meuccicues.com/hp-2.htm)
it beats the camel cue i started with plus i only paid 200 for it brand new. it does come with a horrible tip though..
04-14-2003, 07:55 PM
Here's mine. Only difference is the wood is dyed royal blue, but light enough that you can still see the grain. The wrap is irish linen, white with blue speckles.
04-14-2003, 10:02 PM
Here's mine. http://www.vikingcue.com/pages/cues/vm24.htm
And here is my jump cue. http://www.geocities.com/stickman32152/stealth.html
04-15-2003, 04:32 AM
I've got a JPG of my cues. How do I get it to show up here?
Since I don't think you can link off your machine, you will need to find someone to host the pics for you. Another option is to get one of the free sites out there. You could use Yahoo and such. Once you have the pics on that site, then you just copy the link to the pic and put it in a url or image tag here.
04-15-2003, 07:06 AM
You do not have to have a "valuable custom cue" to have a good quality cue.
04-15-2003, 07:09 AM
Most free sites don't allow deep linking, so you can't directly pull it into here (not for long, at least).
However, posting the link back to an HTML page will work.

My oldest cue Meucci Original Road Angent circa 1987 (scroll down) (http://www.discountpoolcues.com/billiards_pool_cues_pool_tables_.htm)
I also have a Joss production cue and my newest is a Pete Omen custom cue very similar to this

Up until a few weeks ago, I'd been shooting with the 4th cue down, the plainish birdseye forearm Schuler w/Coco joint and buttsleeve.
04-15-2003, 10:03 AM
Fred, has your cue from Tucker been completed yet?
I've been checking his site from time to time, but there have been no updated pictures.
Is there a chance we will see a picture of the finished product?

ferrule is dirty, might need some work. The wrap looks pretty darn good though. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
04-15-2003, 05:51 PM
Schon ST-7, similiar to the new Schon STL-9.
and a Lucasi L-10 U, similar to the Lucasi L-2002 with a Predator (aarrggg) shaft.
04-16-2003, 06:01 AM

04-16-2003, 11:13 AM
When I designed my custom cue I was also torn about how to do my wrap. I was going to also have a curly maple wrapless cue...but didn't think it would look good with curly maple points as I wanted. Could have went with a different wrap wood I guess.

The curly maple on the Blackheart cue is stunning when viewed in person. As you move the cue back and forth the rings kind of pulsate. As you can see all my stuff is wrapless.
Paul Mon~~~~thanks to cycopath for posting my pics
04-16-2003, 03:37 PM
I really like the no wrap look. If I ever have a cue built, I plan on doing this. The wood looks so much better than nylon fishing line. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Fishing line? /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif Hey that's linnen, but I have seen and felt nylon wraps, yuck!
04-16-2003, 05:16 PM
Of course, you're right Rod, but it reminds me of the fishing line my Dad put on our reels when I was a kid. LOL /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

JohnnyP's cue (http://www.jandssafeguard.com/oldcue/)
I was a twenty year old sailor in San Diego, in 1967. A retired gentleman had just set up shop to make cues in the "Arcade", a downtown pool hall . He told me it was his first article for sale. He pointed out a blem in the shaft points, and let me have it for $18.
I recently had the tip and ferrule replaced, and the guys at Triangle perked up when I told them how long I've had it. They don't know who the maker was, but they said don't let go of it.
It's about 17.5 oz, with an 11.5mm ferrule. I know, it's a toothpick, but I like it. I treat her a little better now, too.
04-17-2003, 07:10 AM
That's a very interesting cue. Nice! sid
04-17-2003, 08:57 PM
My playing cue made by Paul Dayton Click Here (http://www.talismanbilliards.com/MyCue.asp)
Also take a look at the high resolution pic to see the detail of the craftmanship - all done by hand with an exacto knife. Hi Res pic click here. (http://www.talismanbilliards.com/MyCueHiRes.asp)
I just picked up the eight point tulipwood and ebony cue at:
It goes well with my other 10 cues...
04-18-2003, 10:29 AM
Thats a nice cue Cassady...I had a chance to shoot with a Hearn once. A guy I played at college regionals shot with one. Looked super nice and the hit was just as good. At the time I was going to look into getting one, but lost the guys number I played. Too late now.
04-18-2003, 11:36 AM
Viking Q33... similar to the VM34 but doesn't have the quick-release joint. Looks exactly like the one in the link except that mine has white pearl, not the smoke pearl shown:
My first and only cue so far.
06-30-2003, 01:11 PM
Just reposting this to see if anyone else has picked up a new cue in the past few months, being a cuemaniac I always love to see what people shoot with. Also for those new people who have joined to post their here as well.
06-30-2003, 01:26 PM
Sucks that half of the links have been severed, or cues have been sold.
07-01-2003, 01:40 PM
I've got a couple of vikings, but I have a predator shaft on my VM 13.http://www.vikingcue.com/pages/cues/vm13.htm and
07-02-2003, 10:59 AM
I just got this cue, Pechauer IV-2, http://www.seyberts.com/pechauer/ivory/2.htm
4 weeks ago. It is the best playing cue I have purchased to date. I made some changes,..ebony handle, black implex joint, and black butt cap with Moori M.
The sound it makes when the CB is hit is music to my ears,...and good vibrations to my hands.
I have gone back to the standard shaft with this cue and away from the 314 and sold my Pred BK. I use the Meucci HOF-1 with the 314 to break with.

Mine. All mine.
My Schon (http://firstname.lastname@example.org/vwp?.dir=/Rackmup!&.dnm=My+Schon+LTD647.jpg&.src=ph&.view=t& .hires=t)
Inlays of ebony, ivory, cocobolo wood. silver rings, and naturally, birds eye maple.
Kato says it's "busy."
I say "So what!"
07-31-2003, 05:40 PM
Well, what does Kato know anyway????? Besides, I've heard that some of his shirts could be considered "busy"! hahahahaha
07-31-2003, 05:43 PM
For my next visit to Katoland, I am bringing a few "busy" shirts myself.
I like to refer to them as my "Cruise Wear". All that's missing is a Pina Colada, a good looking woman in a sarong and a big ship.
Ken (doesn't dress "his age")
A straight piece of wood and a decent tip , is all you need .
If you can play of course . /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

Where the picture your album is empty ?!?!?!? /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif
08-01-2003, 11:38 AM
Mine is the one on the left, it is a Fury NR-1. I like it so far, have been playing it for just 4 months. The one on the right is my friend's, it's a Lucasi L2003RW.
08-01-2003, 11:40 AM
Great thread guys. Love looking and drooling at all the cues out there. I'll try and get pics of mine up soon. I play w/ limited edition custom George cue. I use a predator 314 shaft w/moori tip (which is in dire need of cleaning). Plays great. My back up is the same predatator Charlie Williams plays with, except mine is the earlier version. My break is a 17 oz Tim Scruggs custom sneaky pete. Have received many offers for it and my playing cue. Wouldn't part w/ them for anything...
08-01-2003, 11:52 AM
Picked up this Predator LE-IX for a song on eBay:
Turned out it wasn't a production LE-IX, but actually a prototype. Selling it as soon as someone says "here's too much money" /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
08-03-2003, 01:31 PM
My Cue (http://www.playgreatpool.com/cue.html)
Here's one of mine. It is a Dale Perry made from a rare Hawaian curly koa. Ebony and micarta, and micarta and malachite inlays.
It's a great cue and I have kept it in pristine condition.
I am playing more and more with a stiffer shaft cue,so this
cue doesnt get much use.
It is an "extra" so if anyone falls in love with it and must take it home, regretably, I am willing to let you adopt it.
08-03-2003, 02:15 PM
Sledg...What's the tips on those shafts? They look like maybe a Hercules and possibly a Moori on the other one. Am I close at all???sid
That is a beautiful cue T. Very sweet indeed.
08-07-2003, 11:07 AM
If I remember correctly one is a Talsiman layered and the other is just a regular LePro. I thought I would try one of the Talsiman layered as I have with all the other layered tips.
Layered tips -There all probably great, but just fall short of justifying the high cost to unmeasurable difference in my game.
Ocassionally, I get the notion to try some new tip,but keep going back to the ole' compressed LePro.
08-07-2003, 05:47 PM
Here's my latest ...
Schon LTD 804, Maple, ebony, cocobolo,
08-07-2003, 06:17 PM
That is a badass Schon! /ccboard/images/graemlins/shocked.gif
08-07-2003, 11:51 PM
Heres mine. I can still miss with the best of them !!

Someone said "here's too much money". Bought it for $450, sold it for $1200. Ok, so eBay can be good sometimes!
Here's my custom DZ:
Goncalo alves forearm, ebony buttsleeve with goncalo alves windows and yellowheart pinstripes. 3/8 x 10 pin, 19.5 oz. Fantastic hit. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

10-31-2003, 01:15 PM
So here is my new cue. Beautifully grained mexican cocobolo. 6 alternating hi/lo points. High are maple/ebony/birdseye maple, low are maple, ebony. Matching points heading downward. Break ringwork...middle checkered followed outward by silver, black, white, black rings on each side. Matching shafts. 59" long, 19.6 oz. Moori tips. 3/8-10 pin to wood joint.
10-31-2003, 02:20 PM
Those are some HUGE pics.. Nice cue though!
10-31-2003, 02:56 PM

10-31-2003, 03:10 PM
If you don't have any graphics programs, and you're not on a Mac, your Windows computer likely came with a program called "Paint". Find it under Start->Programs->Accessories->Paint.
Open your picture in Paint. You may have to adjust the "Files of Type" field to be for JPEG files.
After the picture is opened in Paint, choose the menu Image->Stretch/Skew. This gives you the opportunity to stretch your image, or by choosing smaller numbers, shrink your image.
For horizontal choose 50%; for vertical choose 50%. To keep your picture proportionate, you should choose the same number for horizontal or vertical. Click "OK".
Save your file. You may want to choose a different name.
Now your picture is smaller and those of us on dialup appreciate it. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
10-31-2003, 03:35 PM

I have a few cues in my collection, too many to post here. I have an Espiritu, Prather, Dominiak, Jacoby, Carter, Viking, and a Bludworth, Bob Dzuricky and Pechauer being made as you read this.
Check em' out www.zimsrack.com (http://www.zimsrack.com) and look under "Cue Collection" on the right.
There's a lot of great looking cues posted on this thread, thanks for sharing,
Wow Zim you are just like me you really like curly maple. I really like those cues. Im hoping to purchase a Dominiak soon. I think that it will be my next cue
11-01-2003, 04:11 AM
Jay- Send me a personal email at email@example.com and I'll send you some info on Dominiak cues. My collection is based on Curly Maple, Ebony and if any stones, I prefer Turquoise. Wait until you see my Dzuricky cue that is getting the finish put on right now and will be in my posession in about 3 weeks.
11-01-2003, 04:36 AM
Besides resizing, you can also find free on line optimizers. These programs will cause the images to load even faster. I had a couple of these sites bookmarked on my old computer, before I got divorced. I had one for jpeg format, and another site for another popular format that I can't recall right now. A quick search revealed one jpeg program that was free to use, but it looked difficult. The one I had was very easy, and showed a preview so that you could see the results of the different optimization levels. Heater 451 is very knowledgable in this area, and was the one who suggested to me that my web pictures needed to be optimized, and may have even been the one who gave me the name of the sites. After resizing and optimizing, the file size was significantly smaller, and the images loaded much faster, with no apparent loss of image quality. Jim
