Recollection Cues

Collectible Cues, Cases & Quality Players


I don't have to say much about Treadway cues these days, as they have become an industry standard.  Josh has been making solid, well-built and attractive cues for quite a few years now, and with a two-year wait list, they are in high demand.  Here's a nice little player that's immediately available.

This one is new and straight from Josh's shop.  It's made from tight-grained cocobolo with some nice ringwork, and best of all, it has the same great hit that has made his cues so desirable.

When I got this cue I immediately took it out to test-hit it.  As always with his sticks, I wasn't disappointed.  It hits a ton.

The nose and butt sleeve are of a nice dark cocobolo, one of my favorite woods.  He adds a pretty white elforyn butt cap and joint and very pretty ringwork.

Personally I think these rings really "make" this cue.  Each set is made from two silver rings sandwiching a series of white elforyn squares and black ebony rectangles.  You pay a little extra for these rings, but they've definitely got some "pizazz."

He places the rings above the butt cap, below and above the wrap, at the joint and on the ring collars of the two shafts.

The wrap on this stick is excellent.  It's a glossy black textured leather that is applied only as a few in this industry can do.  I have intentionally taken a picture of the "seam" side.  Can you see the seam?  Probably not.  Even when the cue is in your hands it's difficult to find, and even then only with good light and after a thorough search.

All in all, this is a classy cue.  It goes to prove that "classy" doesn't always mean "expensive."

He builds this one with a flat-faced joint with a stainless steel radial pin.  It comes with two 13mm shafts of his premium maple with a modified "semi-pro" taper, with elforyn ferrules and double-pressed LePro tips.  This is a great playing cue at a very affordable price.

As always, he engraves his traditional "T" logo on the butt cap.  It weighs 18.6 ounces.
