EXCELLENT CUE W/WORLD WAR II ERA ARTWORK
June 26, 2015
Our youngest nephew wanted his own pool cue. He likes World War II planes and WWII propaganda war posters. I told my wife about this cue. I asked her to tell me before she ordered it, because I wanted to have Ozone put on a black leather wrap, turn down the shaft and put on a better quality tip. She went ahead and ordered the cue without having any of those things done. Our nephew just turned 13, so his hands aren't big enough to make a bridge large enough to accurately handle a 13mm shaft. Unfortunately, after the cue has been delivered, Ozone won't allow the cue to be returned to have the features added. Still, this is a very nice pool cue. It is well made. Action used excellent quality Canadian Maple, which is also used on very expensive high end cues. The shaft is perfectly straight and the joint fits the shaft and the cue butt perfectly as well. I own several very expensive cues, so I know all of the qualities that make a pool cue worth the money. This Action is worth every dollar it costs. I still suggest selecting the option to have the shaft turned down to 12mm, so it will be easier to use Forward or Draw English. I highly recommend having Ozone replace the stock tip with a high quality tip. I prefer Kamui tips, but any tip that costs more than $15.00 is a tremendous improvement over the hard stock tip. I'm so impressed with these Patriotic Action cues that I have recently ordered one for myself with a Sharkskin wrap, a Kamui Super Soft Tip and I'm having Ozone turndown the shaft to 11.75mm. Hopefully, we can find someone to put a leather grip on my nephews cue and turn down his shaft to 12mm to accommodate his smaller fingers and bridge hand. I believe, you'll be very pleased with this Action cue.
