Tony and Donnie are currently capable of producing only 4 high-end collectible cues per year, and only 6 player's cues. If you are interested in purchasing a new Black Boar, be prepared to wait 6 weeks for an African Blackwood player's cue, and a minimum of 10 weeks for a high-end cue - these collectible cues can take up to 6 months to build depending on their intricacy and complexity of design. However, Tony and Donnie never stop building cues, so feel free to call the shop to see if anything is coming down the line sooner.
Most new Black Boars fall into one of these categories:
African Blackwood Players' Cues: One of the latest developments at Black Boar is the African Blackwood Player's cue. In addition to their simple elegance and full-figured woods, these cues exhibit truly exceptional playing characteristics. They include stainless steel joints, dark chocolate brown lizard wraps, the pronged ivory buttcap, and two ferrule-less shafts. These shafts feature our new electronically engineered shaft taper, which really brings the cue to life.
Basic 8-Point Cues: These cues feature 8 deep-knifed hardwood points, classic silver work in the true Black Boar style, a variety of joints, exotic lizard wraps, and the pronged ivory buttcap. They can be made with or without ferrule-less shafts, making them the perfect cue for players and collectors alike.
High-End Collectible Cues: Truly a rare work of art, these cues are the canvas upon which Tony and Donnie have created their most intricate and inspired designs. They feature 8 deep-knifed hardwood points, ivory over stainless steel joints, exotic lizard wraps, two shafts (typically with ferrules), and the pronged ivory buttcap. The unique artwork in these cues gives each one a personality of its own, and some of the most innovative works have appreciated as much as tenfold in value.
