Recollection Cues

Collectible Cues, Cases & Quality Players


Here is another very pretty cue by Josh Treadway.  I'm happy that he is still taking the time to make basic player cues when he could spend all his time making high end cues for collectors who have been gobbling up his work.  This is a basic cue that is made to play.

One of the nice things about a cue like this is that it doesn't cost much more than a production cue, yet after you play with it for awhile, it will have some reasonable resale value if you decide to make a change or upgrade after a couple of years.  This is a one-of-a-kind custom stick that retains value.

He built this cue from a very pretty piece of Bolivian rosewood that gives the cue character and looks great.  It's heavily grained, and many cuemakers believe rosewood is one of the best hitting materials they can use.

He adds a nice set of black and white check rings at all locations - above the black delrin butt cap, below and above the wrap, at the joint and on the ring collars of the shafts.

At the handle, he adds a black textured leather wrap.  It has a nice feel to it, and looks perfect on the stick.

The rosewood in this cue is pretty from all angles.  The wrap and rings add touches of class.  All in all, it's a very nice looking cue that hits a ton.

He builds it with a flat faced wood-to-wood joint with a stainless steel radial pin.  It has a black delrin sleeve over a wood core, insuring a nice solid, yet soft, hit.  It is built to play.

This cue comes with two 13mm shafts of top quality maple with Juma ferrules and LePro tips.  It weighs 19.0 ounces.
