My Collection (the exes):
The Boxwood Cue, made by ThurstonsDescription:
One of the oldest cues in my collection, but sadly has been cut down significantly since the time it was made - I?m looking for a better example, so if you have one get in touch! Before the invention of the ferrule, cues would splinter at the time, and had to be chopped at the tip to return to solid wood. This cue has an ash shaft with hand spliced plain ebony butt featuring inlayed maker?s name.
Length: 51.50inches, weighing 16.00ounces.
Cue diameters: 10.10mm at the tip, 10.90mm at 12in, and 35.00mm at the butt.

Length: 57.50inches, weighing 17.00ounces.
Cue diameters: 9.70mm at the tip, 13.40mm at 12in, and 32.00mm at the butt.
