Recollection Cues

Collectible Cues, Cases & Quality Players


Here is another great cue by Eddie Cohen of California.  He is making some of the best cues on the market these days, and smart buyers are getting them while they still can.  His waiting list is already many, many months.  
Here are two views of the forearm.

One of the hallmarks of his cues is the use of fancy ring patterns.  As you can see, even on a relatively simple cue like this one, he uses fancy rings to upgrade its appearance.

Here are two views of the butt sleeve.

He engraves his logo on the black LBM butt cap.

What is really special on this stick, however, is the wood selection.  I don't know where the California cuemakers are getting their wood, but their selection of cocobolo and ebony is simply outstanding.  This piece is a good example, showing gorgeous grain, figure and color.

Take a good look at the wood in this cue.  Unfortunately, pictures don't really do it much justice, but I hope you can tell that this is outstanding cocobolo, and a beautiful cue.

He puts these rings in all positions - above the butt cap, below and above the wrap, at the joint and on the ring collars of the shafts.
For the handle he chose a black, textured leather wrap that looks good and feels great in the hand.

He builds it with a flat faced joint with a 3/8X10 steel pin.  It will play like all his cues ... great.  It comes with two 13 mm shafts of high quality maple with Tomahawk ferrules and Triangle tips.  It weighs 19.0 ounces.  

I am discounting this cue because I "test hit" it a few times while my own personal cue was being refinished.  It still looks "like new."  One shaft has never been played, and the other is almost perfect, but under close examination you can tell the one has been used.  The butt is 98%.
