This cue is cut from a solid piece of Purple Heart and inlaid with 4 high and 4 low V-groove points of spalted Sycamore with
light blue, blue and black veneers. The PH runs from the nose of the cue thru the butt cap making for a extremely strong
and responsive cue, thereby combining feedback with playability. The pin is brass with an Abalone dot inserted in the end of it. The joint is flat faced 3/8-10 with phenolic collars. The handle is cut from premium spalted Sycamore and is segmented. The trim rings are black/light blue/blue/PH/blue/light blue (the black veneers are phenolic). The same treatment used in the forearm is applied to the PH butt sleeve which is dressed off with a holly "Hoppe ring". The cue weighs 19.1 ounces and the weight is NON-adjustable (I do not use weight bolts). The shaft is cut from AAA maple and features a pressed Triangle tip coupled with a Micarta-M ferrule (12.8mm). The joint end is phenolic with a Katalox threaded insert.
