Recollection Cues

Collectible Cues, Cases & Quality Players


Here is Jerry McWorter's newest design, the "Royal."  It is in ebony, elforyn,silver, and stunning Paui shell.  As with a lot of Jerry's designs, it is simplicity and sheer beauty - and ultimate playability - all in one package.

Jerry is one of the few cue makers who only makes cue that please him.  He doesn't typically do special orders, other than choices of material, and makes a limited number of designs ... probably no more than about thirty.  Like Ernie Gutierrez at Ginacue, he doesn't compromise on his designs. So when he comes out with a new one, it always demands attention.

Personally, I love this new look - elegant and classy.  And the outstanding quality of the Paui shell adds just the right amount of bling.

I'm not going to spend a lot of time describing the actual layout of this design.  I think the pictures tell the story.  However, I will say it is very typical "McWorter."  You can see features in this cue that are also used in some of his other popular designs, and as always, it is classy and flowing.

This is the kind of design I really like in a high-end playing cue.  Even with its simplicity of design it jumps out at you from across the room.  It's the kind of stick that when you're done with a match and putting it away, people always walk up and want to know what you're playing with.

The long black ebony points are veneered with silver, and emerge into a blossoming pattern as the points end.

I'm a big fan of Jerry's cues, and a lot of the appeal to me has to do with their outstanding hit and playability.  By not compromising on his basic design and structure, he has perfected the hit he wants to convey with each of his cues.  He knows how he thinks a cue should play, and he is a very good player who gives his cues a workout almost every day.

This is a very clean, classy design.  Its simplicity adds to its elegance.

Two features of cue making that Jerry is well-known for are doing perfect, almost invisible, seamless leather wraps, and his outstanding silver work.  His silver veneers are always remarkable and precise, and always polished to a tee.

Here are several good looks at the dazzling color in this Paui shell. 

And as always, a flawless wrap in the same leather he uses on all his sticks.  It's black, lightly embossed, and has an outstanding feel to it.

A few more looks at the wonderful, flowing beauty of this delicate, yet bold design.

As always, he engraves his name/logo in the butt cap, along with the cue serial number (2256).

It comes with a set of Jerry's joint protectors, the one for the butt in ebony with matching rings.  It is built the way all of his cues are, with a 3/8 X 10 stainless steel pin in a flat-faced wood to wood joint. 

The butts of his cues are fitted with his own rounded bumper.  He makes very light extensions that can be screwed right into the butt when the bumper is removed.  (Extensions are sold separately.)

He is making all of his cues now with one premium maple, low deflection shaft.   One reason is to keep the base price of the cue down, but also because so many people are playing with specialty shafts these days who don't really care about having two shafts.   Extra shafts are available for $400.
This cue weighs 19.2 ounces (15.6 and 3.6) and is 58 inches long.  It is a cue that is made to play, and to make the player proud.
