Recollection Cues

Collectible Cues, Cases & Quality Players


Andy seldom makes merry-widow style cues, but on this one he felt the wood was too pretty to put much more into it.  I think he was right - this piece of impregnated buckeye burl is gorgeous, and by letting it take center stage, he made the right decision.  

Buckeye burl is one of my favorite woods, and you can tell why by looking at the wood in this cue.  It's a light, almost maple color, with all kinds of grain, burls and knots.  It almost looks marbled.  Using it in a merry widow style cue and letting it express its own personality was a good decision.

Just to give this cue an extra touch of class, he adds a small inlay pattern above and below the wrap, three times each as you rotate the cue.  Its made up of Paui shell - two small arrowheads and a long oval.  In each configuration the arrows are very colorful, and the ovals more white, showing color only when moving the cue in the light.

The wood in the butt sleeve is just as beautiful as the wood in the nose of the cue.  It is spectacular.

At the butt, he finishes it with a Hoppe-style cap, consisting of a black cap, white ring, and another black ring, with a small brass ring on each side of the white ring.

He adds another black ring below and above the wrap - a nice touch that makes the cue look even more polished.

He builds it with a joint that matches the butt cap in color and design, and it's a solid elforyn flat-faced joint with his traditional 3/8X10 stainless steel pin.  This cue plays great.

It comes with two 13mm shafts with a professional taper, LBM ferrules and LePro tips.  It weighs 18.8 ounces.
Andy, a good player himself, knows how a cue should hit and he builds cues accordingly.  The is a classy eye-catching stick that will make someone a great playing cue.

As with all his cues, it is signed and dated under the finish.  This cue is new and straight from Andy's new shop in Florida.
