Here is another classic McWorter design, this time his well-known "Crown" design in a beautiful curly cocobolo.  Jerry told me this was the best piece of curly cocobolo he'd had in his shop in ten years. 

He's been making this design for a number of years, using different woods from time to time, but it has been a popular cue for him.  In years past, he used ivory rather than elforyn, but the look of the cue remains the same.  It's a simple design, but very striking and elegant.

He uses the same inlay pattern above and below the wrap, and while it is very stunning, it still allows the beautiful woods he selects to be an equal "co-star" in this stick.  

Since this cue relies so heavily on thw beauty of the wood, he saves great pieces for this design.  The curly cocobolo in this cue is so figured and with so much depth that it almost looks like a burl.  The color is outstanding as well.

As always, he uses a lightly textured black leather wrap, applied perfectly as few can do.  He obviously likes this wrap selection - I've never seen a McWorter with anything else. 

Take a look at the figure and color of this cocobolo.  It's terrific.

Talk about clean work - I don't know of anyone whose inlay work is sharper and cleaner than Jerry's.  Every once in awhile, just for kicks, I take a look at his inlay and silver work through a magnifying glass ... and it's still as good as it gets!

As almost always, he caps the butt with a black delrin ring for durability, and then engraves his name with the cue number.

Another look at this beautiful wood ...

While you're looking at the sheer beauty of this stick, don't overlook the fact that Jerry's cues are among the best playing cues in the business.  I like cuemakers who make cues that all play alike, and Jerry is one of those.

Being a very good player, Jerry knows how he likes a cue to hit.  He perfected that feel in a stick years ago and duplicates it perfectly each time.  He doesn't vary his joints or his construction technique, and they all hit well.

He builds all this cues with a 3-8X10 stainless steel pin with a flat-faced, wood to wood configuration.  It's a great joint that works perfectly with his sticks.  On all of his sticks that I've seen, he always uses a delicate double silver ring at the joint and on the shaft ring collars.

As a finishing touch he adds a nice custom joint protector for the butt with matching wood and rings.

It comes with two of Jerry's "medium" deflection shafts of premium maple, both 13mm.  He uses elforyn for his ferrules and  Kamui medium layered tips.

(Optional custom-made 8" extensions, made by Jerry, are available for this cue and are $200.)
