Recollection Cues

Collectible Cues, Cases & Quality Players


I don't know where Doug gets his wood, but he'd better hold onto his source.  I've never seen anyone who consistently puts marvelous woods into his cues the way he does.  This cue is a good example - birdseye bocote - and the pictures will tell its story much better than words could ever do.

This is a basic design, a merry widow cue, but there's nothing basic about this cue.  It has a nearly unbelievable piece of wood, and is dressed up with fancy abalone dot rings that make it something really special.

He builds it with a black phenolic butt cap and a matching black phenolic joint.  Then he adds a black Bison leather wrap that finishes off the great overall look.  It is a classy cue.

He uses a series of abalone dots, alternating big ones with smaller ones, to construct a ring pattern that he uses at all locations.  These include just above the butt cap, below and above the wrap, at the joint, and on the ring collars of the two shafts.

This is a clean-cut, classy design.  A very slick cue that also plays exceptionally well.  A nice sharp, sensitive hit with excellent feedback. 

As usual, he inlays his classy DB logo in the butt cap.

I love this Bison wrap he's using on his cues.  It has a great feel to it, and it looks great.

He builds it with a flat-faced joint with a 3/8X10 steel pin.  It comes with two 13mm premium maple shafts with Juma ferrules and Moori Brown layered tips.  It weighs 18.7 ounces (14.8, 4.0, 4.0) and is 59 inches long.
If you're looking for an affordable everyday player that will impress everyone who sees it, this cue is for you.
