My Complete Set of Viattorre Custom Cues

Postby Sygfrid on Tue Jun 19, 2007 4:03 pm

Finally, my set is now complete!

Today I have received the rest, and perhaps one of the last remaining Via's, of my CUSTOM CUE COLLECTION wherein MY very own concept and designs are skillfully crafted by VIATTORRE CUSTOM CUES: a break cue, a jump cue, and a reserve play cue.

My set comes in pairs, the HEIHO & the DAISHO. The HEIHO consists of solid plain janes, a solid rare Kiiroi as break cue and solid Purple Heart as play cue. The DAISHO set consists of a jump cue with Purple Heart handle & Kiiroi wood diamond inlays & butt sleeve, and a reserve play cue with Kiiroi forearm & butt sleeve, Gaboon Ebony handle with diamond Ivory inlays (2 sides), and rings of Mother of Pearl dots in Gaboon Ebony at ABE. The design of the rings of the HEIHO are similar, while the rings of the DAISHO are the same.

As far as we know, the DAISHO is the first set of cues that has ever used the SAMURAI'S SWORD as its inspiration... Therefore, if you see this design later on (I hope no one else imitates this), remember that this design came from me & VCC, and YOU'VE SEEN IT FIRST ONLY HERE @ EPT...hehehehe :lol:

Most of these pics are shot by Jackson himself using my new digicam so we're not yet familiar with settings. Anyway, enjoy the pics (i hope they are not too dark `coz there's something wrong with the brightness of my monitor):

Since they "Japanese" inspired, all I can say is URAYAMASHII !! :!: :mrgreen:

Specially the straight solid purple heart, must play so sweet!!
While I am very happy with the Viattorre's that I have, I miss the opportunity to have all wood Viattorre cues in my collection.

I hope you will let me test hit with these when I visit home :lol:

I was priviledged enough to get to try that play cue and I am amazed at its playability. Quite heavy at 20 oz but i didnt mind the added weight since the balance was very good (at least for me). Maybe had something to so with the materials used on the cue butt, a very light Kiiroi above and below a known to be heavy Gaboon Ebony inlaid with lots of ivory. Has a stiff hit and has very low deflection compared to most stiff-hitting cues that I've tried :)

Re: My Complete Set of Viattorre Custom Cues

I was backtracking and saw that the original links in imagestation no longer exist. So, here are the pics from another image host site:

sygfrid wrote:VIATTORRE CUSTOM CUES has retired from making wonderful handcrafted cues last June. As a tribute, I would like to share with you the rest of my collection of VCC's set, and one of the last VCC's made, which I've gotten last June 19,2007, from Jackson himself (i got my 1st VCC last Nov `06).
