Some sticks seem stunning because of what you do with them. The truth is, that’s you, not the stick. You know what you’re doing and could take the table shooting with a chalked-up broom handle.

But lay a Character Cue on the felt while you’re racking and the shooter who’s won the last fifteen games is going to fear the next.

That’s the stick. That ain’t you.

A stick with game always speaks English.

A stick with game always has a seven-rail solution brewing.

A stick with game quivers in the bag like a sleeping wolf, dreaming of the kill.

Live or die, a game stick is a fighter.

It doesn’t quit.

It says, I like your bruises and bad mood. I’m in one too. Let’s kick ass.

Get yourself a game stick.

Get a Character Cue.

Plot Twist Jump Cue — Purple heart, hickory or black locust shaft w/ like core in handle


This item is included in “ready to ship” because custom orders are ready to go in a week or so. I have shafts ready to finish and send quickly. The handle will take a week or so to build, get your approval, glue, turn to size and finish.

If precise timing is important, if you have questions, or if you’d like to discuss the details of your order and have me email an invoice, email me at clayton at with your name, phone number and best time to talk. I’ll reach out pronto to set up a time for us to talk on the phone.
