It's been awhile since I've posted a cue. Simple cue with very elegant woods. What a hitter this is.

Pix taken by my good friend Ben Tecson with the help from Bogee Romero. Enjoy the pix.

No Sapelle is not in the Maple Family. Many think it is Curly Maple, but Sapelle is different wood. It's an exotic wood from Africa.

If I am not mistaken, sapele is from the mahogany family. Sapele's exceptional figure makes it unique though.
