Collectible Cues, Cases & Quality Players


Here's another pretty cue from David Elliott.  It's a very traditional merry widow design - dressed up just a bit -  and will make someone a great everyday playing cue, perfect for any occasion.

The outstanding feature of this cue (aside from its great hit) is the superb quality of the birdseye maple.  Loaded up with lots of distinctive "bird's eyes", it showcases an excellent piece of wood.

You don't see many pieces of birdseye maple with such consistency in the birdseye, and dispersed so equally throughout the whoe length of the stick.   Moreover, it's even less often that you see it in a less expensive stick ... typically the cue maker saves a piece of wood like this for one of his "higher end" cues.

The butt sleeve - also resplendent with birds eyes - is framed with two ebony rings with small white checked rectangle rings.

He uses the same ring pattern at the joint.

   Birdseye everywhere!


Nice bright, crisp color as well.

I really like the leather wrap on these cues.  It has a really soft texture.  It looks and feels like very soft elephant ear, but it's not.

Aside from the simple beauty of this cue, its best feature is still its playability.  David makes excellent playing cues, much in the tradition of his mentor, Chris Nitti, and they always have a soft, firm and solid hit.  Great cues to play with!
This one comes with two of his premium maple 13mm shafts, with melamine ferrules and layered medium Wizard tips, built with a stainless steel radial pin in a flat-faced joint.  It weighs 18.7 ounces (15.0, 3.7, 3.7) and is 58 inches long.
