        Did you think it was going to go for more or less than £75?

        I was tempted to put in a bid but decided against it in the end.
        My favourite players: Walter Lindrum (AUS), Neil Robertson (AUS), Eddie Charlton (AUS), Robby Foldvari (AUS), Vinnie Calabrese (AUS), Jimmy White, Stephen Hendry, Alex Higgins, Ronnie O'Sullivan, Dominic Dale and Barry Hawkins.
        I dream of a 147 (but would be happy with a 100)

          I hope we get to find out, fingers crossed it's a cracker, I like to see folk who take risks get the rewards.

            Stinks to high heaven....You telling me he wasn't prepared to break it open to take pictures of the cue?? most likely a broom handle inside :-) Guaranteed if someone on here bought we'll only find out if it is in fact a decent cue!

              Might also be people on here locking up their niche 'ultimate' in their cue craft cases throwing away the key and heading to e bay as we speak.

                  Clever sales tactic...

                  But that's a pound shop luggage lock...

                  The cue will be worthless.

                    He's on a bit of sticky wicket- Listing states it's a 50 year cue owned by his Grandad it's got 'Champion' in writing on the cue, stated it's handmade etc....... If it's totally miss described Paypal will just refund the buyers money. What he really should of put on the listing was 'Old ****ty cue case, crap warped cue inside, putting it on Fleabay because some idiot is bound to pay loads of money for it' (I don't mean you JRC before anyone mentions it!) at £50 I prob would of bid on it for the 'just in case' factor :-)

                      If it sounds too good to be true well- - - -

                      Or we might all be being just a tad cynical - the buyer might well be lazy not everyone knows about cues or snooker to the nth degree and so the buyer might now own the greatest burwatt champion known to mankind - which I hope for them is the case.

                          I was out at £50, at £75 could still be a bargain?

                            Love how he couldn't get it open but oddly enough there's 2 flat screws on the latch above the lock, take these off and the top would come off. How strange

                              Looks like it's been welded either side of the screws
