Recollection Cues

Collectible Cues, Cases & Quality Players


Josh Treadway is an accomplished cuemaker from St. Louis who takes his craft seriously and turns out both player-level and high end cues on a regular basis.  His waiting list is about two years now for special orders, and since most of his cues are bought by players who immediately use them, it's rare to find a new one available.

This is a basic four point cue of ebony into maple, but it has a complicated inlay pattern in the butt sleeve, and turns out to be a very classy looking stick.

The forearm is built with four long points of ebony, with three layers of veneer - yellow, light blue and black.  At the base of each point is a white elforyn notched diamond centered between two silver dots, an inlay pattern used extensively in the butt sleeve.  The maple nose is from a very pretty piece of birdseye maple.

As usual, Josh's points are sharp and even, and the veneer work is clean with a great color combination.

This pattern in the butt sleeve is unique.  I've never seen one quite like it, and when you've seen thousands and thousands of cues, it's nice to see something different.  He builds four veneered windows, using the same colored veneers as in the points.  Then in each he inlays two notched elforyn diamonds with three silver dots.  Between the windows he uses a continuous column of the same notched diamonds laid end to end in a way I've never seen before, with two silver dots.  It creates a really classy effect.

All this is framed between two ebony rings sandwiched between two silver rings with black rectangles (ebony) and white squares (elforyn).  He uses these same rings above the wrap, at the joint and on the ring collars of the shafts.

He uses white elforyn again for the butt cap and the joint.

He finishes it off with a super classy black lizard wrap.  As always with Josh's cues, it is expertly applied with little or no sign of a seam.

He engraves his "T" logo in the buttcap, as he does with all his sticks.

He builds this cue with a flat-faced joint with a stainless steel radial pin.  This cue hits a ton!

It comes with two 13mm shafts of premium maple with elforyn ferrules and double pressed LePro tips.  It weighs 18.7 ounces. It's well-balanced like all Treadways and really crushes the ball.  I love the hit of his sticks. 
This is a rare chance to buy one of his sticks new without a long, long wait.
