    I think Unique’s are 1 piece collection only for instore purchases.

    Definitely, but anyone can pay for modifications to a Parris cue after buying it.

    I have no reason to doubt that it's a Special - but just wondered why it could never be a Unique cue.

    Because Unique cues (as pointed out) are one piece, this cue is a 3/4

    Got it.

    I suppose a joint couldn't be added later then?

    It could but the butt on a regular 3/4 is much longer than it would be on a chopped 1 piece.

    Wow! there's nothing more I can add to the comments above....apart from maybe that:

    a) I knew this cue when it had a special badge on
    b) It is correct to say that the Unique designs came about due to the fact that a lot of customers when visiting the shop were after a 1 piece cue, hence the 1 piece Unique range was added and is only available instore......though I have come across a 3/4 Unique which I saw in store....not sure of the history behind it but I have never come across another.
    c) The prospective buyers of this cue will most likely be well informed on Parris Cues who seeking a bargain, will most likely have their finger on the trigger as the auction is nearing the end....lol or so i’d Like to think so!
