I just bought a beautiful wood on wood radial pin joint cue in Angeles City from a locally known builder. Cored cue, four points inlayed, sneaky pete. It's entirely Amboyna Burl except for the requisite maple. It looks like "Candy". Sitting on the shelf in the open environment for over a year. Still dead nut's straight. 18.7 oz's natural weight, no weight bolt. $300.00 US.
Anyway the joint, first time I've had a cue like this, seems like a soft hitter?
