at times we are all too serious and need to relax. this cue is a perfect example of this. i don't expect to sell it, and don't really care. i just decided it would be FUN to build. the cue weights 32 oz and the entire forearm, joint ring, and pin are made of one solid piece of stainless steel, the butt capp is also ss. lot of laugh's, but way too heavy to use.
