Love it or hate it. I was selling off an estate of billiards supplies some years back and came across an old Valley Double Splice cue and couldn't pass the opportunity up to convert it. These thing are far and few. Both the butt and shaft are straight. This cue is new with no dings and only chalked for test hits. Weight is 18.9 ounces. Shaft is 12.85mm. Length is 58.5 inches.
