What We Offer
Custom pool cues are my passion. After 20 years I’ve learned a lot of construction techniques that make them play exceptionally well. The cues that come out of my shop now are markedly different than what I made years ago. Change and progress are both constants here.
We strive to build custom cues that will be the pride of your collection, the one you will want in your hands every time.
Pancerny Custom Cues has always prided ourselves on being a CUSTOM cue shop. What that means here is not only are our products not mass produced, but we want to help you to have a cue that is your desired weight, length, shaft thickness, ferrule length, etc. etc.
Some things unfortunately will not be left to the customers specifications. 20 years of experience also comes with a lot successes and failures. Simply put, when we design and build a cue there are just certain things that are non-negotiables since we feel they are the right way to do it.
Simple...but remarkable results!
The dot is a signature mark on Pancerny Custom Cues, a result of one of my most creative ideas…
When I first started making cues I saw a shockingly high number of cues broken just below the pin. What became apparent to me is that some manufacturers have a huge void in this area, almost half the diameter of the cue if it’s made with a “big pin”.
Pin makers have come up with some methods for getting the glue out from below the pin that include slicing a channel into the side of it, this allows any excess to come up from underneath the pin before curing. For this to work the glue must be VERY thin…Most cuemakers use a high quality marine grade epoxy here such as West System so this method can work pretty well. In this area I prefer to use 3M DP 420 which is much stronger than the West System glue but it’s thickness also makes glue relief much more challenging. It’s also tough to get the excess glue that comes up, away from the pin if it’s anything other than a flat-faced joint.
The “glue relief hole” which I use provides the simplest way to relieve pressure when the pin is installed. If the hole wasn’t there then hydraulic forces would split the forearm apart and ruin the cue completely.
A common practice is to only use a small dab of glue or in some cases to not use any glue at all. My personal belief is that this area of the cue is critical in the way a cue plays and making it as solid as possible is essential. When we install the pin, we use lots of glue. The excess comes out and a small plug fills the end, leaving the glue in there to harden and everything in this critical area of the cue is as SOLID as it can be.
There is never a chance that our cue will break under the joint like this one did, EVER! If I does I’ll replace the cue at no charge. That simple!
Try one of my cues and I think you will see that they have a feel that is unrivaled!
Frequently Asked Questions
So what can and cannot be customized?
At the present time I have decided to stop taking custom orders. For the next few months I’m going to concentrate on completing some that are a bit over due and building some things the way I want to. Hopefully by spring of 2018 I will be taking cue orders again, more to come on this. The best way to get your hands on a Pancerny cue right now is to purchase one that is already complete.
Please check the “Available Cues” section, here you will find some that are ready to go and cues close to completion.
