Recollection Cues

Collectible Cues, Cases & Quality Players


Here is a loaded-up cue from Ariel that's a real eye-catcher.  It's an ebony four-point with bright, "flame" red, orange and natural colored veneers, and lots and lots of silver work.  He has made this general design before, but never with all fine Argentium silver, which makes the entire cue "pop", especially under the lights of a pool table.

Almost all of the inlay work is silver, and it is polished to a tee.  All the notched diamonds and dots are in silver, with the exception of the white elforyn diamonds in the rings.

He really didn't pull any punches with the inlay in this stick - lots and lots of big and small silver diamonds with a ton of silver dots, in both the forearm and the butt sleeve.

The veneer work is excellent, with long, sharp points.

This is a classy, traditional cue, but fully dressed out.

He uses his most popular ring pattern throughout - above the butt cap, below and above the handle, at the joint and on the ring collars of the shafts.

I like the way he puts such a fine polish on his silver.  It as much an art as it is a science, but either way it takes a lot of extra time to get it looking like this.

Another good look at the veneers in this stick.

Pretty ringwork, and nice sharp points.

As his practice has been the last few years, he engraves his logo in the juma butt cap.

He builds it with a 3/8X10 steel pin in a flat faced elforyn over wood joint.  It's the pin and joint combination he nearly always uses, and part of what makes his cues hit so well.  They have a nice solid hit that makes them fun to play with.

It comes with two premium 13mm maple shafts with melamine ferrules and Triangle tips.  It is 58 inches long and weighs 18.8 ounces (butt 15.2, shafts both 3.6).

He also adds a screw-through rubber bumper that accommodates many generic extensions, like Predator and others.
This is not one of Ariel's usual designs.  It was special made for Recollection cues and is not something you're likely to see repeated.
