Recollection Cues

Collectible Cues, Cases & Quality Players


Chris Nitti continues to make superb cues that look great and play even better.  His workmanship and style are old-school - strictly pantagraph work with nice clean designs and meticulous workmanship. 

This four-pointer is very pretty - all ebony with ebony points, brightly colored veneers in red, black and white, nicely framing the points, and a very nice inlay pattern in the butt.

The best thing about Chris' cues is the consistency of their superb hit.  Every cue hits the same, from his basic merry widow cues all the way up to the $6000-7000 show cues he occasionally makes. 

He uses a pretty, white spearhead inlay at the base of each point and then uses this same pattern in building the more complex inlays pattern in the butt sleeve.  In the middle of each spearhead is a rod dot, with a small silver dot in the middle of each of those.  The larger red dots in the butt sleeve are circled with silver.

I always like his rings - very traditional and classy.  In this case they are small dashes of white, black ebony and red veneer, all encased with two thin white rings.

He builds this one with a white elforyn butt cap and joint.  The white at the top and bottom really sets off all the black.  It's a very striking design.

The sharp veneers with the bridged points make this an exceptionally pretty stick.

He finishes the handle on this one with my favorite wrap - black Spanish bull.

Nice sharp points and as usual, signed and dated on the butt cap.

This cue comes with two 13mm shafts of Chris' premium maple, with melamine ferrules and Wizard medium tips.  As always, he uses a stainless steel radial pin.  It weighs 18.65 ounces.  This is a great looking stick from a top cuemaker and will play a ton.
