It's basically a sneaky pete with veneers on the points. Look up an old Brunswick Titleist & you'll see it.

A full splice Sp is a butt that is spliced together. For instance, if you have a SP with a rosewood handle and a Birdseye forearm. The handle would be cut with the points intact with the forearm cut in the same manor, then they are spliced together giving the two pieces much more contact surface than you would have from a SP that is cut flat at the handle, screwed together then inlaid with points.

A short-splice is not really inlaid with the points. Well, it depends on how you look at it. But the splice is done prior to joining with the handle. Floating points would be considered inlays.

Is it really more contact surface area? Well, that depends on the construction :). I can tell you that something threaded would have a lot larger surface area than something flat.

The only difference between full splice & half splice is that the points on the full splice are physically attached to the handle, as in handle & points being one piece.

As far as the grooves and the points are concerned. Not exactly manufactured the same way, correct? You don't start with full splice and cut off the handle.

As far as connecting the handle to the forearm, well that's totally different. :P

Yes, they are identical except for the points are still part of the handle. Back in the day, before half splice methods were created, the cuemakers actually would take full splice blanks & cut them at the base of the points or just below, and then connect the forearm to another handle. This is how nearly every Balibushka cue was made.

Here are a couple cues that are classified as being 26 1/2's. I have no clue what the numerical logic means but they were one of Brunswicks first full splice designs. These cues were sold by me and stix4sale awhile ago to a collector who had them restored by scott @ Proficient Billiards... Absolutely amazing pieces of history!

what is the purpose of the FLAT portion of the end of the cue?


Couple weeks ago I was on vacation in a town called McCloud, CA. It was a little logging town in the 1800s. In this one bed and breakfast, there is a table there bought by a collector, apparently from the late 1800s he brought up from SF.

ANyways, many of the 'house' cues had the flat side, were very light, including a tulip SP with a flat side to it

So you can turn the cue around and hit the ball with the flat side without using the mechanical bridge.
