Here is a one of a kind beauty by Paul Drexler of PFD studios in Connecticut. This cue is COMPLETELY loaded and has 580 total inlays of ivory & fine silver as well as pink ivory wood!
Joe was born and raised to be a cuemaker. He began working on cues with his father, Jerry, and completed his first "solo" cue at the age of 12. His career has been in partnership with Jerry helping to build the J. Pechauer Custom Cue reputation for impeccable quality. As the Pechauer name continued to gain popularity as a great value for serious pool players, Joe felt an urge to show his skills by creating unique, one of a kind cues with intricate detail and exotic materials not normally seen in a Pechauer cue. Each cue is comprised of materials such as superior Birds-eye Maple, Ebony or other exotic woods to which hundreds of inlays are added. The inlays are made of genuine pre-ban Elephant Ivory, Sterling Silver, Malachite, Turquoise, Mother of Pearl, Abalone, Amboyna Burl, Snakewood, Holly and Pink Ivory. The finishing touch is added using exotic wraps of African Crocodile, Alligator, Ostrich, Lizard, Llama, or Exotic wood. As each cue nears completion, Joe authenticates it with his Joseph Pechauer signature and numbers it 1 of 1. Joe makes no more than twelve of these collector pieces per year. -Pechauer website
McWorter Custom Cues, are arguably one of the finest of the more modern designed one off makers in recent times and when you really look at the level of detail in his cues you will realize why very quickly. His work is impeccable and very limited currently and they are very sought after due to his body of work in cues as well as a musician. This particular cue was #7 of the 20 cues he made in an anniversary series he made to commemorate 20 years making cues, each cue had a different design of those 20.
This Ed Young cue was owned & used by Chicago player Chris Gentile in the 2011 US Open One Pocket event where he went undefeated to the finals where he played and lost only one match in the finals to the great Efren Reyes... I do not claim that adds to the cue's value but the prior owner had the custom matched joint caps made for it. Ed Young makes very few cues and has a very long wait to get a cue if you can even get on his list. His influences in cuemaking are some of the finest like Craig Petersen, Burton Spain as well as David Kersenbrock... I also have an almost new 3rd VERY WELL matched shaft by Steve Lomax to it at 30" and 12.75mm that is not pictured with the JP as well that will come with the cue...
Here are two simple yet timeless beauties that are not only highly collectible but cross collectible as well as they were made by two different cuemakers. These are a couple of Tim Scrugg's final turned forearms that he gave to Cory Barnhart to finish with a hint of both of their styles!

I spoke with Dennis Searing about this cue and he stated "that is one of my absolute earliest cues" so circa 1990 and it plays like a dream and is in excellent condition...
An excellent cue in my personal choice of specs (although I did not order it) with a very understated/subtle super clean classic Titlist conversion! I believe James White has a 5 year wait at this time too. his cue is in "test hit condition". In my professional opinion, that means it has been played with by the prospective new owner with chalk on one or both shafts very briefly but otherwise is still in perfect condition without any issues and that is what happened. This one is one of the ones I almost wish was a little more used and I would play with it until it sold... This cue was listed on my website in the beginning of the summer for $2499...
