Collectible Cues, Cases & Quality Players


Bobby Hunter, a top player, has been making great playing cues for a long time. In recent years he entered the "high end" market as well, and has been making cues that not only hit great but look exceptional.  I call this one the "Burl Bookend" cue because of the way he book-ends the pieces of wood in the points so that the grain in each point matches the one next to it as they wind around the cue in a continuous way.  Not many people take the time to do this, and with the highly figured wood in these points, it creates a nice effect.

This is an absolutely stunning cue of ebony and amboyna burl.  The gorgeous burl shows beautifully against the pure black ebony nose and butt sleeve.  

As the pictures show, this amboyna burl is about as highly figured as you can find anywhere.  And the way he showcases it by bookending the pieces in the point makes it very special.

Inside each burl block in the butt sleeve, and in each point, he inlays a nice ivory diamond for extra detail.  At the butt cap he adds his stylized "H" logo.  He then goes on to add his traditional rings of small silver squares at the butt cap, below and above the wrap, at the joint and on the ring collars of each shaft. These are spectacular rings.  As the cue goes into motion under light it comes alive.

He builds this cue in a flat-faced configuration with an ivory sleeve over wood joint, with a 3/8X10 modified stainless steel pin.   I like the way this configurtion hits.  It has a nice feel to it, and for those are aren't usually keen on the hit of an ivory joint, this has an entirely different feel.

He finishes it with a very nice black elephant wrap that looks perfect and feels great.  It's my favorite wrap - smooth and soft, and wears well.

This is a very classy cue.  It comes with two 13mm shafts with ivory ferrules and LePro tips.  It weighs 19.7 ounces.  There's nothing else like the hit of a solid ebony cue.
