hello to all, i'd just like to ask: are ringwork styles generally
propriety and distinctive on custom cues? you see a friend of mine has
a cue that have the same ringwork on it (A,B,C,D,E too) as to this one
http://SportToday.org/
 and looking at it, the respective lengths (and proportion) of the
***cap, sleeve, handle and forearm are also similar to this ed
young. The color of the wrap is also the same. The only parts
inconsistent to this gabon piece on ebay is that my friend's cue has a
radial pin instead of the southwest-ish pin and the *** protector
at the bottom isn't as protruded and has no edge. (and my friend's is
a kingwood plain jane instead of ebony.)
  So is this ringwork style exclusive to ed young? i hope someone here
could confirm. We aren't really particular on the cues we use and my
friend's game really upped since acquiring his, and it has phenomenal
feedback on the hand (not buzz); so much so as to pique our interest
on the origins of the cue. The black ***cap unfortunately has no
label on it. We almost took the wrap off thinking that maybe the
maker's mark is under it but we (perhaps prudently) backed off! :)
(Of course the surest way is to contact ed young but we don't know his
email ad and we reside here in the Philippines so shipping the cue to
his shop for verification is probably pretty costly.)

no - many cuemakers use rings similar to this 'look'

keep in mind David Kersenbrock*s style of cue is the most
copied since the Titilist

I don't believe Ed has an email address, but if you email me a picture I'd be
glad to print it out and show it to him.  It might take a little while before I
bump into him at the pool hall.
