Zak’s Custom Cue

Just thought I might give my cue some paparazzi attention since it has served me well for close to 10 years!

Workmanship and quality is top-notched. It has survived seasons, climate changes and a number of plane rides. (warped just very slightly in the 10 years, but still a lot ‘straighter’ than most new cues)

Had it made back when I was staying in Queensland. Quite a popular custom cue maker over there.

Some Aluminum Case that I bought from Day 1. (I’m surprised the case lasted this long)


The "Onionhead" that my GF bought because she says he looks like me!

The club I used to play at.

Just don’t ask me how much I spent on it. LOL
(Worth every penny though)

how much is it? LOL:)

Cause I’m plan to buy a cue for myself,actually it’s my first cue in my life,the virgin one,lol. But I don’t have too much knowledge about it,and I’m not a english speaker,so the language would be a barrier to get acknowledge of the cue. I really need help to get the better cue with my limited budget,so if u can, i’m appreciate that u can give me some direct on the how to choose a cue,thanks!
