What's the difference
between a custom made cue and an individually made custom cue built
to fit a particular pool player?
The sad truth is that more and more the term "custom
defined as any "two piece" playing cue. I guess that comes
from the time when all two piece cues were custom made for road players,
gamblers and professionals who traveled frequently and, for them,
the convenience of a two piece cue was necessary.
Next came the manufacturers
who wanted everyone to think that their cues were as good as the
precision made, individually assembled and
constructed cues master
cuemakers were creating for their customers. These manufactured cues were produced
in great numbers by machine operators whose main concern is "payday and
sundown. The cues look great, some play ok for a while, but most will
end up as firewood, or given to the kids to play with, or just thrown in the
can along with the day's other rubbish. But they are called "custom cues" right
along with the fine cues that were ordered by the customer and individually
built according to that customer's needs and desires.
Don't be tricked into
purchasing a two piece cue made to fit the display rack.
For just a little more money you can have a precision made, individualized
custom cue from Arnot. It is worth the wait!
