This business started as an outgrowth of a lifetime of working at being the best pocket billiards player that I could be. After I started playing in 1965, I learned about maintenance of my own equipment (cleaning shafts, shaft dent removal, tip replacement, ferrule maintenance & replacement etc). Over the years, I measured and took apart various production and custom cues to learn how, and why, they played good, bad or ugly. As I improved as a player, friends asked me to fix their cues. I replaced tips first, then ferrules, then dent removal and more complex repairs. As these repairs took more of my time and money (I was doing them for free to start.), I decided to make a few bucks and start a legal cue repair business in 1985. TRIPLE CROSS CUES has grown between 20-35% each year. One of my personal goals has been to perform the highest quality cue repairs for my customers. About 1995, I began building custom cues to customer's specifications striving for excellent playing characteristics. I was accepted into the International Cue Makers Association, in the Cue Maker classification in 2004, after my first review process.
As I advanced from social play to ACUI college tournaments through local weekly poolroom tournaments and now to regional professional play and exhibitions, I have experimented with many special combinations of ingredients in my own cues. TRIPLE CROSS CUES have the best advantages from the best cues I've dissected over time. My success as a player has been refined through much practice and deliberate efforts to make a better playing cue. Better equipment improves consistency, hence the slogan, Your best can be better with a TRIPLE CROSS CUE.
