need input on the "New" Balabuska cues and Jacoby cues

Post by SunsLu » Sat, 22 Jan 2000 04:00:00


I was wondering if anyone can give me some feedback on the "new" Balabuska cues
(pros and cons).  I have a chance to purchase a new one (GB5) which lists for
$680 for $340.  I was also considering buying a new Jacoby Custom cue (J14).
Any suggestions?

This is a no brainer. Why would you possibly want a Buska replica? Buy the
Jacoby. Or another reputable cue. Jeez! MM^^

But if we cannot buy a Buska replica, we cannot play nineball like Fast Eddie
Felson........ (or is that a replica too) :-)

These are the ones made my Adams, right?  I ordered one when they first
came out (about 10 years ago I think) based on the picture in the
brochure.  It really looked like a beautiful cue to me.  Once it
arrived I didn't accept it because it didn't look like that picture
had.  What was obviously dark ebony in the picture was either a very
light ebony or possibly cocobolo(sp?) in the actual cue.  At the time
Adams tried to BS me that the lighting and such had simply made the
wood in the brochure look darker than it really was.  It was obviously
to anyone who saw the brochure and the cue together that there were two
different woods represented.  Adams got that cue returned to them.

Jacoby's the answer.  I have one, and most people I know around here
(admittedly, Wis) WANT one.  They are the nicest (IMO) custom cue I've ever
found in that price range.  I have a modified J9.  Dave will work well with
you.

I too, ordered one from their catalog and received it yesterday. What a
disappointment!  It is going back on Monday. I had the same problems.
It didn't look anything like the one in the picture.  Plus, it had a
"few" major defects: uneven joint, ferrule wider than the shaft,...
Live and learn!
