What's the Point?
award-winning custom pool cues

In the quest to build Black Boar cues Tony's main concerns have always been both artistry and functionality. There was a moment at the beginning when the determination had to be made as to whether points were solely relevant to the look of the cue, or if in fact they had a significant impact on its engineering. Decidedly, points are indeed important to a cue's playability, and in knowing this Tony was unable to make any compromise from that moment forth. Points were always to be made of heavy exotic hardwoods to ensure proper weight distribution and resilience, and inlays would be left for embellishment and artistry.

Form follows function at Black Boar. From the very beginning, the design theme of Black Boar cues was the classic sophistication of Ebony and Ivory. Nevertheless, artistry and design must be considered in conjunction with engineering. The weight of the points is critical to the structure of the Black Boar cue. The woods selected for the points are much heavier than maple for a reason. Accent woods with comparable density (such as Snakewood, Pink Ivory, and Cocobolo) are frequently used to lend color to the cue, but woods with less density are typically restricted to inlay work.

The points are the backbone of a Black Boar cue; there are no shortcuts here. Each set of points is precision-milled and fitted to the deep-knifed pockets within the cue; this process is repeated in the 6 and 8-point cues. Some cues boast as many as 24 knifed-in points to create the veneer effect - this is very time consuming but becomes evident in the cue's balance and hit.

Points should play two very important roles in the design and manufacturing of a cue. First, points should help to stabilize the forearm. Second, they should add progressive weight towards the rear of the cue. With the advent of the 6-point cues Tony fell in love with the beautiful transition from Bird's Eye to all Ebony. This feature created such an increase in quality that Black Boar would never look back on any other manufacturing technique.
