ARIEL CARMELI
HONDURAN ROSEWOOD BURL HANDLE
AND SIX POINT CUE

Here is one more beautiful Carmeli cue that stands out in the crowd.  This one is all Honduran Rosewood Burl and Ebony, even the handle.  The design is outstanding, but the quality of the wood is what makes this cue very special.  It is simply stunning wood.

He began this cue in a rather simple fashion, with an ebony butt sleeve and nose.  Then he added six points of the rosewood burl, each framed with a single maple veneer.

This cue would have been pretty if he had stopped here and simply added  leather wrap.  But he didn't.  He went on to add a three piece handle of large pieces of rosewood burl with a smaller ebony segment in the middle, all separated by pretty ebony and maple "railroad track" rings.



I love the overall design of this stick.  It is the perfect backdrop to showcase all the beautiful wood.

I am always impressed by the quality of the wood that Ariel finds and uses in his sticks.  This cue shows why.  Not only is the rosewood burl gorgeous, the ebony is beautifully black and resonant.  

He uses the same ring pattern throughout the cue, six times in the butt and again for a seventh time on the ring collar of each shaft.  This stick has a "Southwest" look, although I've never seen a Southwest that I liked as much as I do this cue.

The butt cap itself is black phenolic.  The joint also is a phenolic sleeve over wood, in a flat-faced configuration.  It utilizes his 3/8X10 stainless steel pin.  I have test hit this cue, and it hits great.

This stick comes with two 13mm shafts with a semi-pro taper, LBM melamine ferrules and Tiger tips.  It weighs 18.9 ounces with one shaft and 19.0 with the other.
Considering the amount of expensive wood in this cue, and the quality and amount of work, this cue is very reasonably priced at ...
