I am very confident in this cue and will offer a full refund including
shipping to any RSB'er who might buy it and for any reason be unhappy with
it.

Thanks a lot Sheldon, and for all the tips you've given me along the way.

Hey, good for you!  I hope you get what you had hoped for it, and
continue to make more cues and build your name as a cuemaker.

Just an observation...in my 3+ years of selling cues I have learned
what people are looking for.  I think the Bocote handle may turn a lot
of people off.  I think that cue would receive a lot more interest if
it had an irish linen or leather wrap.

Best of luck..

-Mike

Yup, thanks Mike. I guess you could say I'm 'experimenting' at this point
with different combinations of woods. I do believe there are quite a few
people who still prefer a no wrap cue. Heck, I play with a no wrap sneaky
pete myself.

I think it is a very nice looking cue and one of the key features that
make it nice is precisely the bocote handle area. I have a cue by Mike
Webb (which I call my "not so sneaky sneaky") which has a bocote wrap
area. I get a great deal of positive reaction to that cue. What I
think could be considered a negative is the abrupt change from bocote
to maple without any transition. The Webb I spoke of before has bocote
points into a maple forearm which looks pretty nice. Even a
transitional ring would be better IMO. All in all though a nice cue.

I guess I didn't do very well on the pics, but there is a ring above the
bocote wrap area.Some more pics here:
