    well TBH it came to me in original condition all be it pretty rough at the butt end, with very dark stiff grain lovely and straight @ 55" long and because it was so short and powerful , and nearly all JD cues have the same design upto the 1955 147 break cue , i had it secondary spliced with some wonderful waterfall Bubinga and weighted to 18.5oz to lengthen it to 57.5" my choice cos its a very solid player , , members may think ive vandalised it but i think its fantastic , i have before and after pics so will sort them shortly , Mike fearnleys 101 cue was 52" long and had it lengthened to the original design , which is on most JD cues we no , black ebony and maple front splice, sorry if ive disappointed any collectors by doing so ,

          Lovely pics. Cheers bud.

          Can't blame you for taking it to 57.5, cues are meant to be played with, especially old wood cues.

                tbh i had a Willie Smith & George Nelson cue that i would say stood out if i had to choose but at that time i was at my best and i owned it for 15 years and it was machine spliced and i had some of my best matches with it , but i can say a fare few really if i think about it , reason the Smith & Nelson is cos i stuck with it through thick n thin and never swapped it when i was having a bad patch , with having so many now its easy to swap and change , atm im using a Jp red glue traditional and its brilliant but i have a TW and that is too so it becomes a dilemma , i think there is always the one and its usually the one that got stolen or sold and big regrets take over and then try to find one as good but i think its psychological , but it dont have to be an expensive cue to be a good one as you may no , and i have some limited edition ash Ton Praram cues that are fantastic also a Jason Owens , but if one has a better tip i can perform with it without thinking forgot to say i had a Hunt O'byrne cue stolen on the night jj won the world in 1986 and that was top draw , still reeling from it really

                  Interesting post. Cue thieves, and they're in our own ranks, grrrrrrrrrr! Meant to be a gents game as well. Grrrrrrrrr!

                  Yeah, I totally agree with you on cue costs. My favourite is my £35 Purist, above and beyond a JPU or any other cue I've had for me - angel ash! lol. Obviously, I haven't played with an old JD 101 so that would be an interesting comparison.

                    yeah i agree for one thing and that is if its upto playing the modern game then yes to alterations as i love a good classic player, im not so keen on cues that are just kept in a cupboard/display cabinet that are just for show and bent whippy and no feel , but they are in original condition thats the only thing going for them , losts of purists of the game may disagree but , i can sell an updated classic player easier than an original untouched one as the market for old classic players is a wider audience than collectors , im always getting asked for an old butt with a new shaft , call it a Hybrid and they are plenty that want this kind of cue to play with , best of both so why not .... going back to your Purist cue they were very well made in the 80s top quality
