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.

Sassafras with live edge (bark section) and maple burl (dyed red) at each end.
Expect the red to be vibrant and wavy. I’ll retain as much of the bark section as possible, which will mean the grip area is thicker than an ordinary stick.
Ready to turn to final size September 2023 or later.
Arrives packed in a sporty Pool Dawg hard case with a tip shaper/chalker in the pouch.

*The stunning grain patterns and markings you see come from the wood being spalted, which means, rotten. Rotten wood is weak and unsuitable for building pool cues. But spalted wood that has been stabilized is another matter. Stabilized wood has been dried, placed in a vacuum, impregnated with resin, and cured in an oven until the resin hardens. The resulting wood is strong and durable enough to easily provide the strength required for a cue.
The wood comes from the woods around me in western PA.
