    There was a memorabilia site selling what they claimed to be the genuine one which I discovered wasn't and the listing disappeared.

      I'm not sure what the spec of Jimmy's old cue was, I'd be surprised if it was this weight but I'm really not sure. This cue will be known to quite a few people on here as it belonged to Mike Russell, ADR might know more about the accuracy of the copy.
      No cheap shots...well maybe the odd one if its funny...

            Same here Mark, can't really Justify the spend. This is one of those cues you want even when you don't need it.

                I do recall when B&W closed they put a big piece on their website saying - essentially - to not trust or deal with Dean Jones (no relation by the way )

                • I know he does replica cues but that is definitely something that is going to rustle a few feathers in the cue making world.

                  A friend of mine bought a cue from him about 2 years ago, it was a Parris Ltd edition with the checker board front splice design. He showed it me and something just didn't feel right to me about it. He got in touch with JP and he confirmed that the cue wasn't one of his because, it was a 1pc and all Ltd edition cues are 3/4 jointed, big give away.

                  Anyway, he took the cue back, he dealt with Gary Ford who gave him a refund, they said the cue was sold to them as a part exc or something.

                  About 2 weeks later, another mate of mine needed a new tip and he decided to go to Dean Jones and get one fitted and take a look around. Much to my amazement, this same Parris cue was on the rack with other cues and guess what, it had a different badge on it. Suddenly it was a Parris Special cue, but it was the same cue. So given what this chap has said and my experience, I also would urge caution dealing with Dean Jones.

                  • Probably the most open and honest description of an item I've ever read, surely this dean jones should be brought to task even by Parris it's bloody forgery.

                    • Is he the same Dean Jones, the cue maker from Halesowen, UK?

                        I believe this is the same person.

                          • I can't police the entire internet but the number of cues I see now that are copies is ridiculous.

                            • Money changes everything. Why people can't be satisfied with just getting a cue that suits them and get on with practise is beyond me. They have to have that badge, that status symbol that they think will turn them into a good player
                              Speak up, you've got to speak up against the madness, you've got speak your mind if you dare
                              but don't try to get yourself elected, for if you do you'll have to cut your hair
