About this jump cue:
- $449 — Handmade, with loving attention to detail.
- Handle outer is spalted/stabilized tiger maple and hard maple, with blue dye added to the rings. All other colors are natural. I stabilized the rotten wood with Cactus Juice. It’s close to $100 a gallon and the process is long and involved, but the wood comes out of the oven stronger than when it was green. The wood was hand selected and contains some of the choicest and most intricate spalting patterns I’ve ever seen. I aslo used copper, nickel, and brass rings. Piano Man is gorgeously unique
- Handle contains 3/4 inch purple heart core — the same wood as the shaft — yielding a crisp bouncing experience
- Purple heart is among the hardest/stiffest woods available, sought for jump and break cues for efficient energy transfer
- 9.9 oz …. lighter, for faster acceleration and less forward motion after the hit
- 40 inches long, easier to control
- 13.5 mm tip standard red phenolic tip for crisp hits that give the cue ball room to bounce
If it jumps like the one you just sent me, (I have no doubt) Received mine 2 days ago, I think the brother of this one, my first jump with the cue, Playing 8 ball, cue ball was just below and left of the foot spot, an intervening solid about 8-10″ away, took aim, wack, a 6 foot air ball at my 10 ball (which was stuck to the long rail between side pocket and corner. I rattled the corner pocket with the 10, missed but shit what a jump. Typical of a Diamond table. My opponent missed his next shot and I ran out. I also let the house pro try it, caught him walking out the door with it, kidding. He loved it also. Thanks Clayton.
