This was a blank an unfinished blank from the DPK Omega shop that was finished by Rick Geschrey at Esoteric Cues. It has the proper pin and I believe the cue was fully assembled at the DPK Omega shop and just finished at Esoteric. Very cool cue that hits just like it should at a great value. Lightly used, does have a few very small finish issues and a stain on one shaft near the joint collar, otherwise this cue looks and feels great...

This cue plays excellent and I was told that out of the 35 cues that came with this collection, this one plays the absolute best. It needs some work and is price to move quickly and help with the cost of the repairs. The ivory joint needs to be replaced and I would replace the ivory myself but with the stain on the forearm I will have to defer to the Phillippi shop which should be able fix this cue easily...
For sale is an old Huebler ASH-1 that looks like most old Hueblers but this one has a shaft made by Dennis Searing with an ivory ferrule and matching ringwork. One of the best playing Hueblers I have ever hit with and it has perfect specifications...
